NEW DELHI, INDIA, May, 4, 2001: The Indian Government has banned a radical Muslim group it blames for a series of bomb attacks on Christian churches in southern India last year. A government statement said the group, Deendar Anjuman, had the potential to disturb communal harmony and disrupt the secular fabric of the nation. Members of Deendar Anjuman accused the government of trying to divert attention from domestic political problems. The Muslim group has denied any involvement in the attacks on churches, in which more than 20 people were injured. Evidence linked them to the attacks, however.
