No I am still from India

Amal Nazeem,

My parents are Muslims from Southern India. Growing up, I had many friends from all over India. They were mostly Hindu and they only knew other Indians to be Hindu. When I told them that my parents were from India, they thought I wasn’t a true Indian. I might have been called Pakistani a few too many times. The food we eat, the politics we care about are all authentically Indian and so are we.
