Worried Muslims of India

  • Displaced Indian Muslims watch election news on television at a relief camp in Muzaffarnagar, India, an area that witnessed one of the worst Hindu Muslim riots of recent times in which 69 people were killed and over 40,000 were rendered homeless. Muslims account for more than 13 percent ofIndia's population and face no legal discrimination under the country's secular constitution. But while many Indian Muslims have held high government offices - the current vice president Hamid Ansari is Muslim - the community is largely poor and fares badly on most socio-economic indicators like health and education.
