The terrorist attacks on Mumbai on November 26, 2008 (26/11) have been placed alongside other jihadi terrorist acts, like those of 9/11 in New York and ‘7/7’ in London, by the mass media and policy makers. This paper seeks to understand the emergence of radicalism in a multi-cultural and syncretic society like India and its implications and lessons for policy makers and society.
