"Saffron terror", also termed "Hindutva terror", describes terrorist violence perpetrated with a Hindu Nationalist agenda. The term first appeared as the headline of a Frontline article in 2002 referring to the Gujarat 2002 communal violence. From a long list, two notable acts of saffron terror include:
• The 2007 bombing of the Samjhauta express, a train service connecting Delhi (India) and Lahore (Pakistan) in which 68 people, mostly Pakistani civilians, were killed.
• The bomb blasts targetting Muslims in Malegaon, Maharashtra in 2006 and 2008.
