          India is a free country. Muslim is not a race, but a very aggressive religion. If one is practicing it, it can be create tension. Be wise and become a normal peaceful Hindu, then no poblem will arise.

              Quite true, such things happen because if you rent to a Muslim family they are bound to practice their religious beliefs, which mean cutting the throat of cows and sheep during ID. Hindus do not like this practice and have been against it for very long time. No wonder most Muslims live in their own enclaves. Show me one Muslim country where Hindus are treated as equals.

                Do not Cry and Try some where else. You will always find good people. I have also had the same experience in Denmark some 40 years ago.
