Naxalites, who are raging a bitter insurgency in parts of India, gave a gun salute to the victims of Mumbai attack. The Times of India noted that this gesture marked a significant shift in their policy.
An Indian Muslim organization, the Indian Muslim Council, has refused to bury the nine killed terrorists involved in the attack, and has sent messages to other organizations in India to refrain from burying them. The Muslim Council of India decided not to allow burial of the bodies of the nine terrorists killed during the Mumbai siege in the Marine Lines Bada Qabrastan (cemetery). The council said it was trying to send a message to all cemeteries in India that none of the bodies should be buried on Indian soil.
Indian Muslims condemned the attacks. Javed Anand, a writer and activist said, "They (terrorists) claim to be doing this in the name of Islam. We have to tell them, 'Not in our name,'" They also conducted several prayers for peace and harmony.
