Bomb goes off In Hyderabad, India

An attempt to start another riot, I guess. It won’t work.

Five killed, 16 injured in blast at Hyderabad mosque- Hindustan Times

At least five people were killed and 16 injured in a bomb blast during Friday prayers at the historic Mecca Masjid here.

Eyewitnesses said the blast occurred when thousands of Muslims were about to complete ‘namaz’.

The blast took place near ‘wazu khana’ or water tank, where Muslims do ablution before offering prayers.

    what happened to people.. On Fridays generally Mecca Masjid area is tightly secured as 10k people come to that place to offer prayers… I hope police will take control of the situation and no one will act crazy and start communal riots…

    I heard 200 people gathered and started pelting stones (not sure at whome) after the blast occurred to protest… I don’t understand what they were trying to do.. instead of helping the injured they became obstacle for the ambulance to reach the hospital.. police had to use tear gas shells to make way… this is such a dumb thing to do.. instead of helping they get down to protest… I not sure where this world is going to..

    The intention behind this blast was probably to create tension in southern states.

    I share your optimism. I believe such riots will not break out.

    They were successful in reminding people in this part of the country that India is not immune to terror!!!
