Muslim contribution to India's culture is huge.We need a deeper knowledge n interest to unearth them.Kindly do not compare some Muslims with Indians.I have seen some Muslims of this forum who consider them more as Muslim n less as Indians.But they do not represent the Majority.The majority r Indians.For a few the entire community can not be blamed.
