Agree with J. We were very close to an inflection point there, those years. Mumbai was the last throw of the dice for the Muslims. They were already beaten by then. Gujarat just reiterated the point for the future.
I don't think I'd want to live in a Muslim majority state - creepy thought. But in India, I'd like Muslims to be equal partners. No victimising, no posing as victims. No sniping about their citizenship, no second thoughts about being part of a universal 'Ummah', rather than firmly defined once and for all citizens of a nation-state. No personal law for each religion. Just one statute governing all citizens.
