Although Muslims are safer in this country than in other parts of the world because they have a stake and space in Indian democracy, Indian democracy is unfair to Muslims, says Shabana Azmi, actor and former MP.

Indian democracy unfair to Muslims: Shabana Azmi-India-The Times of India.

I am just disgusted by such thoughts which berate the country that gives shelter to one of the largest population of Muslism in the world. I would request people like Shabana to go live in 33% of the land that was given to Muslims so that they could leave Hindus alone.

I am afraid one day in India…

We will have reservations for Muslims in every apartment complex

We will have reservations for Muslims in every colony.

We will have reservations for Muslims in every school.

We will have reservations for Muslims in all companies.

We will have reservations for Muslims in buses.

We will have reservations for Muslims in trains.

We will have reservations for Muslims in air planes.

Just because we Hindus chose not to wake up and stand up for our country.
