About the Book
At this juncture, it would be prudent to look into the inception as well the activities of the Indian Mujahideen (IM) in order to understand their composition, terror tactics, modus operandi, as well as the issues that inflame their operations. This edition focuses on the inception of the IM, their links with the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), the ideology that they profess, and the various attacks that have been attributed to the same. Since the subject requires an in-depth research into the intricacies of the terror group as well as its links with other groups, this edition deals with certain aspects of the same. In this edition, author draws information mostly from Indian press reports, assessments by Indian terrorism analysts, and a very limited secondary literature. This dearth of information renders it difficult to make assessments on such issues of interest as the potential impact of the recent terrorist events in India.
