Nussbaum on Indian Muslims

Martha Nussbaum just published an op-ed on a subject very dear to me, namely the well-being of the Muslims of India, a minority community that finds itself near the bottom of the heap across a whole host of social indicators and that, not coincidentally, has been the target of discrimination and organized violence.

For that matter, I wish more people would pay attention to the plight of the Biharis of Bangladesh. Actually, I kind of wish the Muslim Arabs who focus so intensely on the plight of the Palestinians might give some thought, and dedicate some resources, to this community. I’m hoping I’m wrong and that the Qataris are rushing to help out, but I doubt it.
