in response to reader comment: Muslim Schools

Isn't it interesting that in Great Britain there are two groups from South Asia, Pakistani Muslims and Hindu Indians and yet the Indians are much more successful, more integrated into British and Western culture, and do not have nearly as confrontational attitude toward the government. Since both of these groups are from the same part of the world and are essentially from the same genetic stock, one can only conclude that Islamic identity presents problems in a democratic, multi-ethnic society. I do know that after the partition of India there are still almost 200 million Muslims in India and 14 Hindus in Pakistan hiding out in a basement.
