Islamic religious bigots attack Buddhist temple

Hindustan Times:
Nine serial blasts in a coordinated terror attack rocked the Mahabodhi temple complex in south central Bihar's Buddhist pilgrimage town of Bodh Gaya early on Sunday, injuring two monks.

"It is a terror attack," Union minister of state for home RPN Singh said about the blasts that took place between 5:30 and 5:58am. Sources in the ministry of home affairs said there had been intelligence of a possible attack on the temple and Bihar was alerted last month.

The Intelligence Bureau (IB) had alerted the state that two terrorists, brothers originally from Bihar but based abroad in recent years, had entered the state to carry out terror attacks, according to an official aware about the intelligence input.

According to intelligence sources, Bodh Gaya has been in the crosshairs of Pakistan-based terrorists, who want to avenge violence against Rohingya Muslims in Buddhist-dominated Myanmar.

The police said crude explosives were used for the low-intensity blasts. No structural damage was reported to the 7th century temple, which is regarded as one of the holiest Buddhist shrines and is a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Buddhists from all over the world visit the temple, which has the Bodhi tree under which Buddha is said to have attained enlightenment.

"The holy Bodhi tree is safe and there is no damage to it," said Bihar director general of police Abhayanand.

There is more.

This looks like a tit for tat case of religious bigotry that will only create more attacks.  One of the specialties of Islamic religious bigots is mass murder attacks on non combatants.  Their weird religious belief is that they should kill anyone who disagrees with them.
