The Problem of No-Go Zones

Why is it that the areas in which muslims become the largest community turn into no-go zones for other communities? This is the condition not just in South Asian countries but also in Western Europe—which is seventy-six percent Christian and is regarded as a bastion of secular democracy. There are muslim majority neighborhoods in cities and towns of Western Europe which, according to media reports, have become no-go-zones for Christians, Hindus, and Jews. In Leicester, Hindus have come under attack because a few of them passed through a muslim majority area. In a secular democracy, why should an area be identified as “muslim majority”?
