Indore's terror connection hurts Madhya Pradesh image

In cases of crime and terrorism, the name of Indore frequently comes up though this historical city has always been known for its culture and communal harmony.

But somewhere things changed in the last two decades. Fundamentalism and fanaticism gained ground. First the City got notoriety for its underworld connections and now terrorism is also linked to it.

CBI and Anti-terrorist squads regularly raid places in Indore and towns around it. Ajmer Dargah blast case, militants' targeting Hyderabad's Mecca Masjid and Malegaon bomb blast are connected to Malwa. Pragya Thakur was arrested here.

Before Hindu groups' involvement in terrorism, the Muslim hardliners like SIMI was functioning here. The SIMI mastermind Safdar Nagori was arrested in Indore. Why has this peaceful City turned into a place of lawlessness.

Crime rate of Indore is also going up. Murders and loots are daily affairs but there is no movement for peace and ensuring communal harmong among the citizens of Indore, which is also called Mini Bombay.
