    Indian Muslims experiance terrible prejudice all over India.

    Although they are 13.5% of the population. Indian Muslims are oppressed in every area of life.

    They are treated as less than second class citizens.

    They are denied government jobs and entrance into universities.

    Many have had to change their names to Hindu names just to survive and get a job.

    Indian Muslims suffer prejudice in every area of life because of the policies of the Hindu dominated government.

    India has a caste system right? It's only natural that the Murderous Muzzies would be at the bottom.

    Wasn't that the reason behind creating East and West Pakistan to begin with?

    When Nazi Germany took over my families country in Europe, they left. After the war when they wanted better opportunities and to be able to reap the rewards of their labor, they left. They went to a new land and when they got off that boat in NYC all they had to their name was desire and principals!

    Am I justifying discrimination? No. But, when a person does not exercise their options, but still chooses to complain or even worse, commit a crime, they get no sympathy from me.

    India's Muslims in Crisis


    The roots of Muslim rage run deep in India, nourished by a long-held sense of injustice over what many Indian Muslims believe is institutionalized discrimination against the country's largest minority group. The disparities between Muslims, who make up 13.4% of the population, and India's Hindus, who hover at around 80%, are striking. There are exceptions, of course, but generally speaking, Muslim Indians have shorter life spans, worse health, lower literacy levels and lower-paying jobs. Add to that toxic brew the lingering resentment over 2002's anti-Muslim riots in the state of Gujarat. The riots, instigated by Hindu nationalists, killed some 2,000 people, most of them Muslims. To this day, few of the perpetrators have been convicted. (See pictures of the terrorist shootings in Mumbai.)

    The huge gap between Muslims and Hindus will continue to haunt India's — and neighboring Pakistan's — progress toward peace and prosperity. But before intercommunal relations can improve, there are even bigger problems that must first be worked out: the schism in subcontinental Islam and the religion's place and role in modern India and Pakistan. It is a crisis 150 years in the making.

    The Beginning of the Problem
    On the afternoon of March 29, 1857, Mangal Pandey, a handsome, mustachioed soldier in the East India Company's native regiment, attacked his British lieutenant. His hanging a week later sparked a subcontinental revolt known to Indians as the first war of independence and to the British as the Sepoy Mutiny. Retribution was swift, and though Pandey was a Hindu, it was the subcontinent's Muslims, whose Mughal King nominally held power in Delhi, who bore the brunt of British rage. The remnants of the Mughal Empire were dismantled, and 500 years of Muslim supremacy on the subcontinent came to a halt.

    Muslim society in India collapsed. The British imposed English as the official language. The impact was cataclysmic. Muslims went from near 100% literacy to 20% within a half-century. The country's educated Muslim √©lite was effectively blocked from administrative jobs in the government. Between 1858 and 1878, only 57 out of 3,100 graduates of Calcutta University — then the center of South Asian education — were Muslims. While discrimination by both Hindus and the British played a role, it was as if the whole of Muslim society had retreated to lick its collective wounds.

    No, what you don't understand is that Muslims must live in every country and every country must bend over backwards for the Muslims and treat them like royalty. Muslims don't just move into one country, they invade it. They reproduce like fucking rabbits... they have at least 7 or 8 kids per household and live in poverty, sucking the government dry of resources. Then those 7 or 8 kids have 7 or 8 more kids and within a few generations, that country must separate territory for the Muslims to live in because the Muslims have a holy right to live there... and if they don't do it, well you saw 9/11, right?

    The time for religious tolerance of Muslims is over.
