Indian Muslims since Partition

Indian Muslims since Partition

Indian Muslims since Partition Balraj Puri The demolition of the Babri masjid and its aftermath have aroused genuine sympathy for the Muslims in a sizeable section of enlightened Hindus who have accepted the challenge of the extremists in their community.
