Right wing Muslims would call for implementation of Shariah law. Due to several years of democracy, there would be a brand of left wing Muslims too but most of them would be closet-seculars since publicly going against the faith would put their lives at risk. Eventually, the right wingers will gain more and more control with India turning to an Islamic democracy and much later, possibly a Shariah governed society.
However, this view of perceiving India in its “Muslim transformation” is flawed. A more realistic and useful perspective to understanding the propogation of Islam in India is by assessing demographics. Areas with Muslim majority populations accompanied with hate-mongering maulanas and imams are the areas of most concern. Yesterday, the formation of Pakistan took place, today (if we come under Congress rule) it could be Kashmir and tomorrow it may be West Bengal or Kerala.
I still find it appalling that some people believe in the liberal-secular narrative of left wingers. Crowds in Kashmir are pelting stones on army personnel “in the name of Islam” and we are worried about an isolated protest by ABVP in a Delhi college campus.
I understand when people complain about right-wing Hinduism and Hindutva but frankly, it’s very stupid to compare it to Islamic fundamentalism which is a much bigger cause of concern.
