False claims

Reader comment on item: Muslim Europe

Submitted by A Gill (United Kingdom), May 24, 2004 at 05:27

I have to comment on S C Panda's truly ridiculous comments.

The assertion that India has a Muslim immigration problem is completely false. India has come until recently had a right wing Hindu supremacist government. Muslim immigration to Pakistan has actually increased.

Muslims in Gujarat certainly do not find India freer mainly because in 2002, 2500 Muslims were killed in pogroms with the complicity of the then government. So this wild assertion has no basis in fact.
