It is against their faith. Muslims were never taught the concept of nationalism. They were taught only the commitment towards their faith. They believe that one day whole world is going to be Islamic and that they are not obliged to obey the law of the land wherever they go. The secularists argue that Muslim rulers should not be looked upon as foriegners as they did not send wealth from India to Turkey( whereas British exploited India to the benifit of Britian). But this does not mean that the Mughal rulers had any affinity towards India. This was because they never had any concept of nationalism as Britishers had.

First of all we should know a brief concept of marriga in Islam:
Marriage in Islam is based not on one single objective or purpose such as procreation or sexual fulfillment. Rather, it is intended to cater to multiple purposes which include, above all, spiritual tranquility and peace, and cooperation and partnership in fulfilling the divine mandate. Let me explain this briefly.

Islam, being a natural way of life, takes into account all of genuine human instincts such as physical, spiritual, intellectual, emotional, et cetera. It is for this reason that, unlike some other religious ideologies, Islam looks at sexuality positively. In other words, instead of attaching any taboo to sexual fulfillment, Islam teaches us to celebrate sexuality within the framework of a lawful union.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, You merit rewards of charity in your sexual union with your spouses! His companions asked in surprise, How shall we getting rewards for fulfilling our n ...more

An ideal comparison would be possible only if the population figures for Assam and Jammu Kashmir is excluded respectively from the 1991 and 2001 census. When the population figures are compared after this exclusion, the Muslim population in 1991-2001 has declined by 3.5 percent while the Hindu population has declined by 2.9 percent which is lower than the Muslim decline rate. (After exclusion of Assam and Jammu Kashmir population figures from 1991 and 2001 respectively the growth rate of Muslim Population is 32.8 per cent in 1981-1991 and 29.3 percent for 1991-2001. The figures for Hindu population growth is 22.8 per cent in 1981-91 and 19.9 per cent in 1991-2001)
In this background when an English Daily (Times of India) pointed out to Mr. J.K. Banthia that his assertion that Muslim Population is showing higher rate of growth is wrong, he has accepted that the comparative figures he had given is misleading.
so you can notice that actually muslim population rate has declined compared ...more
