    While just browsing around I found a couple of articles that I would like to post in geo separate threads. This is the first. I quite identify with what this article says.

    ^^ Yusuf, the point about the mother teaching the child that "while Islam is good, Muslims around us are bad", is very very common among affluent Muslims. Those Muslims in Bangalore who stay in Jayanagar-Basavanagudi type of areas fit this description to a 'T'. Not those who stay in Tannery road, Govindpura, Pillanna garden, etc.

    True and false. I don't think mothers teach (may be may be not) but kids grow up to realize who they are better off makin friends with.

    To tell the truth, their are "classes" if you will in the Muslim society. Like you said ones in Jayanagar and then those in Tannery Road. People make their choices.

    The level of illiteracy is really high. "jahiliat" is apparent in many sections but not all. It's not limited to Muslims alone as we have same categories of people among other communities too. Vote bank politics has actually made sure nothing good happens to the community.

    Good article.

    Muslims usually have more hindu friends than muslim ones.
