The recent bombing in Mumbai highlights the unlikely nature of a peace pact struck there three years ago between two religious groups with a history of strained relations. In the aftermath of the November 2008 attacks that killed dozens, Muslim Ibrahim Tai led his community and a nearby Hindu community in agreeing that they would not respond to that tragedy with more violence. "In times like these people get really suspicious of each other," said Tai. "And fight with each other. But these fights can be avoided through mutual dialogues." No group has claimed responsibility for Wednesday's violence, but police have blamed similar attacks in the past on Muslim militants intent on destabilizing the integrity and sovereignty of India.
