India: A place to pray

Indian Muslims on the difficulty of finding a place to pray. “I wonder how many non-Muslims are comfortable with Muslims praying in front of them. I have seen people, in northern India, object just for the sake of doing it. On the other hand I have seen very amiable responses by non-Muslims in southern India. I would go ahead and claim that southern India is much more tolerant towards others when it comes to accepting idiosyncrasies.”
