“When minorities are pushed...they may retreat into a siege mentality that breeds radicalization. But India’s Muslims...have embraced and emphasized the blessings of liberal democracy by placing their faith in the Constitution of India and insisting on their constitutional rights as citizens” (Mustafa Akyol and Swaminathan S. Anklesaria Aiyar, 2020).
