The truth is that in India today 80-90% Hindus are communal, and so are 80-90% Muslims. So when a Muslim is attacked and/or killed, most Hindus are happy or unconcerned.

In Mark Twain's famous novel 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn', Aunt Sally asks Huck whether anyone was hurt in a steamboat explosion, to which Huck replies :

" No ma'am. just a nigger killed "

When the 55 year old dairy farmer Pehlu Khan was beaten to death by a mob of 'gau rakshaks', most Hindus must have thought or said,

'What's the big deal ? Just a Muslim killed'.

The truth is that in India today 80-90% Hindus are communal, and so are 80-90% Muslims. And since almost 80% Indians are Hindus, the Muslim minority is usually at the receiving end. So when a Muslim is attacked and/or killed, most Hindus are happy or unconcerned.
