On Muslims in India

Another video for you today as I continue to catch up. This is not a new piece - it's an IBN interview from 2008 - but I hadn't seen it before.

In the interview, Shabana Azmi talks about Muslim identity India. She notes that Indian Muslims are in a relatively good position, compared to Muslims in other parts of the world, because they are stakeholders in a democracy, and there are prominent Muslims in many walks of life (for example, movies and politics) that can serve as role models.

I don't feel qualified to judge whether I agree or disagree with Shabana ji's statements here. What do you think?
