Muslim violence in India and Indonesia




There is an interesting contrast here between the way two poor countries -- India and Indonesia -- deal with Muslim violence. The terrorists mostly get a free pass in Indonesia but India prosecutes energetically. The British origins of India's legal system seem to have a lot to do with it. The author rejects the view that the minority status of Muslims in India has anything major to do with it. At over 200 million, Indian Muslims are a LARGE minority.
