The Hindustan Times identifies what might have been the motive of the attacks on the Bombay commuter trains:
Unlike the 1993 blasts, aimed at the city's institutions, 11/7 was meant to hit the people who represented the face of globalising Mumbai.
The bombs - in all probability improvised explosive devices, the choice of terror groups in the past 10 years - exploded mostly in first-class compartments ferrying professionals and businessmen during the evening rush hour.
As we have seen before, Islamic terror is not motivated by an answerable complaint, but by a hatred of modernity and progress. They seek to destroy anything that symbolizes what rejects their jurisdiction, as though freedom itself were a boil to be lanced.
