Was J&K terrorists behind Akshardham temple attack?

To whom does Kashmir belong?: It is not a piece of real estate, the wishes of the Kashmiri people will have to be taken into account before attempting to find a solution. The solace for India is that most Kashmiris want to stay only with India. We in turn need to give the Kashmiri people their rightful due by respecting their feelings and giving them more autonomy, says Rajiv, Chennai.

 Indian Deputy Prime Minister Lal Krishna Advani: The massacre at Akshardham temple was likely carried out by Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pak-based terrorist group active in J&K. The signature is very evident and the signature looks like that of LeT. Foreign office, Pakistan: We condemn the attack on the temple in the strongest term. Islamabad denies having to do anything with it. The attack was a fall-out of the bloody riots in Gujarat. Indian Government has failed to build a tolerant society in Gujarat.
