India - Religious Divide Growing Hindu nationalism in India is a source of concern for the nation's large Muslim minority and for those who value the country's traditionally secular form of government. Attacks by Islamist militants in Kashmir and even the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States have brought calls for a tougher line against Muslims in India. Hindu nationalists have gained political clout and are seeking changes in curricula to "Indianize, spiritualize and nationalize" the education system. Eric Weiner reports from New Delhi. This is the first report in a two-part series. Tomorrow, All Things Considered will have the Muslim perspective in India.
