Mahabodhi temple is the place where Buddha had realization as the Buddhists believe and it is a place of worship for many pilgrims all over the world.  Intelligence agencies say that the incident may be a retort from Muslim terrorists for the recent violence in Myanmar where Muslim groups were targeted.  The agencies were having information that Buddhist places will be the targets of Indian Muzahideen.
