>>hindus in india always afraid of muslims because they rule them.<<

Hindus are afraid of Muslims not because they ruled them but because Muslims massacred their forefathers in their millions. They have every reason to be afraid given the visceral hatred the people from across their borders have for their polytheistic /monistic beliefs.

>>..so they are afraid of quran which talk about social justice, abide all the muslims to live through islam ..<<

Reading that statement of yours about social justice in the Koran had me howling with laughter. The prophet used to distribute slaves , including women for their enjoyment, to his favourite people. Are slaves not people with human rights?

The History of Tabari, vol 8, page 29-30

From his share of captive women, prophet gave his son-in-law, Ali a slave girl, Rayth bint Hilal to enjoy at his will. He also presented Uthman b. Affan, his son-in-law, another slave girl Zainab b Hayan, and bestowed another girl to his father-in-law Oman Ibn Khatttab. Oman gave that girl to his son Abdullah. Most of the Prophet's other elite companions received slave girls as gifts… (The prophet considered women to be prisoners of men or like animals so it is not surprising that he distributed women to his favourites and relatives like one distributes goats and cows)

The Koran considers women a degree below men, have only half the share of men in inheritance, can be locked away for lewdness and have to please their men. That is apartheid. So half of humanity is compared to animals (Tabari Vol IX ,age 113) or considered to be prisoners of men (Ishaq Page 651, The last pilgrimage) and are allowed to be beaten if they behave with unseemliness.
