‘Deccan Mujahideen’ claims responsibility?

Even as a little-known Deccan Mujahideen group claimed responsibility for the coordinated terror strikes in Mumbai on Wednesday night, the identity and nature of the attack has left security agencies baffled.

In the camera shots of a suspected terrorist involved in the gruesome shootout ever to be undertaken by terrorists, the AK-47 wielding youth comes across as an average youngster.

Dressed in a black half T-shirt and jeans with a blue rucksack hung over his left shoulder and red sacred thread tied on his right wrist, one might just mistake him to be just another regular college going student.

What baffles the security agencies is the sacred thread tied on his wrist which many say could be a plot to show that the attack was undertaken by probably an extreme Hindu group.

But, the claim by a terror organisation with a Muslim name has left the above theory in question, say experts.



  1. The email issued from the islamic militant group Deccan Mujahideen claiming responsibility for November 25, 2008 attacks in Mumbai actually mentions the group ‘Indian Mujahideen’ (and not Deccan Mujahideen). Maybe they are the same or a splinter group. The contents of this email are mysteriously similar to an email threat issued by the Indian Mujahideen group against Mumbai back in September 14, 2008 and published in a reputable Indian news daily – India Today. The real question is how seriously were these threats taken by the Indian authorities.

    Here are the links to both of these emails-
