Most Indian Muslims can’t open bank accounts!

bank accountMuslims in India are treated worse than Dalits. They are widely perceived as being pro-Pakistani and supporters of self-determination for the people of Kashmir. So it’s not surprising to hear that Indian banks are denying banking facilities to most Indian Muslims.

According to The Hindu, Indian banks have designated those areas where Muslims are in the majority as “red zones”, and these localities are not provided banking facilities. Muslim students who have won scholarships and live in the red zones find they cannot open bank accounts.

It seems that Muslims are more discriminated against in India than blacks in the U.S. This is the real face of Indian democracy!

  7. Which fool said that muslims are not allowed to open bank accounts in India, had you ever visited India? I work in Bank and have n-number of muslims having accounts, the hell with your knowledge, but for your kind information, if muslims would have not been allowed, how you terrorists could have been able to access money transfers in Bank for the sake of terrorism? Its a habit of Muslims always to be have a back side attack and this is one of the example

  8. confused indian: some scholars have said that bank interest is not forbidden (“haram”). However, no interest is paid on money kept in current accounts, so most Muslims prefer to keep their money in current accounts. Also there are Islamic banks, which do not pay any interest to depositors, but pay money according to Islamic principles. A banker in Dubai told me that in the UAE, Hindus are the biggest depositors in Islamic banks (because Islmaic banks give them more than what non-Islamic banks would give them as interest).

  9. have you try to check what kind of policy british, american or european (except for swiss bank) adopt for new customer.

    please enlighten us about that too.

    buddy, they are not for social services, and like all good banks in the world indian banks are also trying to boost their bussiness, if people of particular area or community are consistently failing to submit loan in time what banks do. keep them feeding and having pile of NPA.

    by the way, in other article in chowrangi someone telling us that earning interest is prohibited in islam, so why good muslims like to open bank account.
