Well in 1984...please see the events that lead to that sikh massacre..... Terrorism..in Punjab...Khalistan movement....Operation Blue Star to kill Terrorists hidden in Golden temple.......just like Lal Masjid in Pakistan...Indian PM got Killed....so The riots....
2002.....A train got burnt...by Muslim Rioters....Hindu Pilgrimages got killed...so the riots......
Look at the events in totality...don't just segregate the events..... for your convenience...
This is an old news....look at something Recent...
NEW DELHI (PPI) - Jama’at-e-Islami Hind (JIH) unveiled a path-breaking action plan to create educational,
health and housing facilities to improve lot of millions of poor Muslims in India.
Alarmed by the findings of Justice Rajinder Sachar Committee, which painted a dismal picture of
socio-economic conditions of India’s 140 million Muslims, Human Welfare Foundation’s Vision-2016 intends to
build a student hostel in each state as well as 10 centres of higher learning has been pegged.
Human Welfare Foundation’s Vision-2016 aimed at providing free quality education and health services to the
poorest among India’s 140 million Muslims. “We are committed to achieve objectives of Vision-2016 within the
stipulated period of time. Funds will be generated through donations,” said KA Siddiq Hassan, a retired
university professor and vice-president of JIH, which is headquartered in New Delhi.
Although the government has plans to improve conditions of minorities, it is increasingly felt that the community’s
lot will change for the better only when Muslims activists and groups contribute their bit.
The Foundation’s health agenda includes setting up a super speciality hospital and 10 speciality hospitals. “The
process and planning for all projects are going on smoothly. Hopefully targets will be achieved,” Hassan said.
It decided to construct 10,000 dwelling units in urban India while 100 model Islamic villages will also be
developed by 2016. Each model village will have 100 houses, a primary and higher secondary school, a
clinic-cum-diagnostic centre, a community hall, a shopping complex and a mosque.
Foundations Vision-2016 talks of total emancipation of poor Muslims. “It aims at imparting quality primary and
secondary education to the poorest among Muslims. We also intend to provide them health facilities and
financial assistance for economic empowerment,” said Hassan.

Vision-2016 , well time will tell
Have you read the article completely..it also points out out why India Muslims have not moved ahead....No leadership....no vision...till now....so .....
Please read my signature below....
Instead, the Hindu reaction was a Krystallnacht-style killing spree whereby local and state authorities used census data to identify Muslims' homes and to guide Hindu mobs who killed/raped the Muslims in their homes.
One was a case of criminal thugs perhaps instigated by religious leaders. The other was a state-sponsored pogrom.
Nothing to doubt here ..... the literacy rates for Pakistan and Indian Muslims are available on the Net ..... may I suggest Google?Doubt that.
Sure they would. But sad as that statistic is, the rest of the 150 odd million Indian Muslims would however look at the LAKHS of Pakistani Muslims shot/stabbed/beheaded/mutilated/blown up/etc. by other Pakistani Muslims, and say a silent prayer for having stayed back in largely tolerant and pluralistic India.The 3000 victims of Gujarat and their relatives would disagree.
Exactly. There are prejudices on both sides, but at least with the state machinery providing for equality, the chances of these prejudices being worked out peacefully by fellow Indians is that much higher, as is being seen by the efforts to improve the lot of Indian Muslims, their coming out and speaking out publicly in defense of their motherland against separatist fundamental Islamic forces within and without, and in general the markedly reduced intensity and frequency of Hindu-Muslim riots today.Government laws cannot control people's minds and prejudices.
Nobody is shifting blame. My country, my government, my people. Its like asking me to pick and choose amongst my brothers to say who is innocent and who is to blame. Sorry ...... not happening.Nice way to shift the blame onto the victims. I would accept your statement if you also acknowledged the need to combat bigotry in the Hindu/Sikh community.
India has communal issues and discrimination despite claiming to be secular - the US suffered from racism and discrimination, not just against blacks, but almost every 'new' ethnic/cultural group that settled in the US - The Irish, Italians, Asians etc. And all this despite a constitution that guarantees equality of all men and a separation of Church and State.
But have you not read anything that has been posted here so far? The Muhajir community is also one of the most successful economically and educated communities in Pakistan. Karachi accounts for the lions share of revenue for the Pakistani State - food for thought.On the other hand, look at the Punjabi refugees who came to India and see how they were looked after, assimilated, re-settled and look at how prosperous and forward that community is in India today.
Lets not get self righteous here - the concept of Pakistan is not abhorrent to Indians for any noble reasons such as the ones you mention, but because of irredentist and expansionist desires.That my friends has been India for millenia ...... a secular land with a big heart. That is also why the very concept of Pakistan was so abhorrent to the collective sensibility of the people of the land ..... from all faiths including Islam ..... and why they chose India over Pakistan. Which again goes to prove what I have said in an earlier post of mine ...... the ties and bonds of a shared land and culture and history are part of the collective unconscious of the people of a land and are much deeper, stronger, and primal forces than those of religious separatism.
In fact, finding another people and nation 'abhorrent' because of the path they chose for their destiny is in itself an attitude that smacks of disrespect and a superiority complex. It is none of India's business what system of government we choose and what laws we have in place - those are the business of Pakistanis and Pakistan.
