Wow I am so stunned by this. Leaving aside the fact that the question (Why is Religion Important to Indian Muslims?) presupposes that religion is important to Muslims in India, and that why would anyone ask a question like that? (I would love to ask Modi why Hindutva is so important to him)
Anyway I am just picking off two articles from the same feed, today, which prove that your claims are unjustified and false.
But please tell me what does being pro-muslim mean? Standing up for the communities who are marginalised cannot be a bad thing. Atleast thats what I feel. This feeling is rooted in a desire for equality. I hope this is a good thing.
