Dilip attracts all the heat after he wrote of news items about Muslims condemning the Delhi blasts, and asked: why should Muslims have to prove this every damned time? This follows an interesting discussion.

One commentator Anand says:
Frequently demanding the minority communities to prove their allegiance is a successful fascist ploy. That even secular minded people sometimes fall into these traps is indeed unfortunate. Let's not have first class citizens whose patriotism is never questioned and groups of second class citizens who need to prove it every now and then.
This is applicable for many countries in the world.

Update: Saudi blogger Alhamedi discusses the french riots in the light of the same topic with a different perspective. An interesting read.
