India’s Muslims are under tremendous pressure from within and outside the community. The demand to ban Triple Talak in one sitting; the brutal attacks by gau rakshaks reported from different parts of the country and the right wing Hindu campaign against love jihad, have gained momentum in the last three years. The Shia Law Board that claims to speak for India’s roughly 6 crore Shia Muslims, a minority within the larger Muslim community, has issued a fatwa against cow slaughter and beef; has demanded that Triple Talaq be banned and recommended that the Ram janmabhumi-Babri Masjid dispute be resolved out of court.
