You know it is really funny.... this paragraph makes it sound as if 90% of the islamic world is actually offending their own religion and that they never understood it.The difference between Pakistan and India today is the story of how a great religion, Islam, has been distorted by those entrusted to protect its liberal ethos. Pakistan and several countries in the Middle-East have used Islam not to liberate but imprison their people. But it is in secular India that the damage has been most insidious.
That is what pressed so many Hindus to choose right wing; this squandering of a community's votebank by a bunch of politicians who would use them to loot the country.The more politicians sequester Muslims into vote silos, the more the middle-class Hindu (not the liberal, well-meaning, Stephanian Hindu) resents them. Discrimination, petty or large, mounts.
