Home Minister P Chidambaram on Thursday said there are indications of involvement of Indian module in the July 13 Mumbai blasts that killed 26 people.
It is for the first time that the government has pointed towards the involvement of a homegrown terror group for the three explosions in the metropolis.
The Home Minister also said all over the world right-wing fascist forces were on the rise and India is no exception to it.
"While no conclusion has been reached, all indications point to Indian module," Chidambaram said about the Mumbai blasts, adding that perhaps it could be the same module that carried out a blast in the German Bakery in Pune last year.
He said that while there was a finger-pointing for every terror incident towards the neighbouring country, a clear reference to Pakistan, there is also an existence of home grown terror modules as right wing fascist forces.
"We cannot live in denial. We cannot close our eyes to facts. There are home grown modules. Indian modules. They do not belong to one religion," Chidambaram said.
The Pune and Mumbai blasts are "two major blots on my career, I accept it," he said.
Chidambaram said another mistake was to point fingers at a particular religion whenever a bomb blast took place.
