SECURITY UPGRADES AT MECCA MASJID MOSQUE as Friday approaches. As this article points out, Hyderabadi Muslims in the past have not cooperated with government attempts to highten security, although they seem to be going along this time. Of course, the riots that followed last weeks bombing were in protest of perceived lax security efforts on the part of the Hindu dominated government. It is also almost certain that the bombs were placed by Muslim militants.

One of the new security measures being considered are cell phone jammers. Cell phone signals were used to trigger the bomb last week. It may be that in the future cell phone jamming may become a much more frequently used security measure, and that's probably not a bad idea at all.
