The question of minorities has dominated Indian politics for over a century. In 1909, separate electorates for Muslims were introduced at the national level. In 2009, employment and educational quotas for Muslims are under consideration in the wake of the recommendations of the Sachar Committee and Ranganath Misra Committee. India is not alone here, minority rights are currently debated by states across the world. Importantly, in each country, the manner in which minority rights are accommodated is shaped by histories of nation-building.
