Development of Muslims

Comparing Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh in the early 2000s

By the early 2000s Muslims in Gujarat were far behind those in Andhra Pradesh in terms of indicators of community well-being, such as educational attainment, industrial employment and public sector employment. Studying the well-being of the Muslim community in Gujarat is important in the context of the claims of Narendra Modi's much hyped "Gujarat development model". This article seeks to understand the status of the Muslim community in Gujarat in the period prior to the 2002 violence and compare the situation with that in AP, which has a somewhat similar profile.
