NOTE TO "INDIAN" MUSLIMS: You got your share at Partition: Pakistan. In India, you should INDEED know your place.
The bloody moron who wrote it was from Southall, UK. Really, some of us displaced desis are batshit crazy. Distance not only makes the heart grow fonder, but it also seems to make you less sane at times.
Interestingly enough, that message was in response to this Outlook article, which typifies Outlook's apologist tendencies towards the *other* extreme- that let us not be so impolite as to ask the muslim community to do some self-policing.
Also check out this cool blog, hosted by a bunch of expat Indian Muslims, writing about things from the Indian Muslim perspective. I hope they'll get some heartland Muslims to pitch in too. The perspective would be very valuable.
