Are Muslims getting a fair deal in India?

Been watching the Doha lectures recently. This one about the state of the Muslim minority in India is very interesting and not just limited to Muslims and India. You can really take them out and replace with any minority group and there position within a state and society.

India has the largest affirmative action policies in the world but even the advocates of the governments record One a Cabinet Minister freely admit that there system isn't working perfectly at present. Then of course their are warnings about the rise of the Hindu far right and there growing influence in certain sectors of Indian society. Hmmm.... remind you of anywhere?
