    Muslim does not rest on his domicile in the country which is his but on the faith to which he belongs. To the Muslim ibi bene ibi patria is unthinkable. Wherever there is the rule of Islam, there is his own country. In other words, Islam can never allow a true Muslim to adopt India as his motherland and regard a Hindu as his kith and kin.

    If the Muslims of India identify as Indians then it is good but if they identify more with their religion than their country like supporting Pakistan at a cricket match than something is wrong

    Unfortunately all these decades, since our Congress party which has won Independence for the country has given only one side of stories by either paying the media or controlling it. By doing that Congress wanted to rule India forever with their single family rule. For this to be successful, they had to resort to giving half truths and in the process telling the vast majority of rural poor people all lies. This is the reason for democracy being stifled for the last seven decades. This happened during emergency and passing of unilateral laws and constitution amendments during that period.
