I am posting this photo from my recent trip to India today after the news last night that Jama Masjid was bombed, and several people injured. The immediate area is always filled with scores of people, and the motives behind the bombing of the mosque are unclear.

Associate Press writes ->

”The Jama Masjid is the main landmark in one of the most crowded parts of Delhi’s old city, surrounded by hundreds of shops and houses lining a maze of crowded alleyways.

Less than two hours later, police reopened the mosque complex and hundreds of worshippers streamed through the main gate as night fell and the sound of prayers over loudspeakers echoed across the neighborhood.

Most people stopped near the site of one blast to stare at the red sandstone flooring that covers the mosque courtyard, some of which had turned bluish-black from the blasts.

Half a dozen shoes and flip-flops, some charred from the explosion, lay scattered around, left behind as people scrambled to flee. About 30 feet away, a splotch of red had been circled in white chalk by police, with the notation “BLOOD” in large letters. ”
