The history is long and complicated, and there isn't really a unified viewpoint either side holds. There have been periods of cooperation between the two, periods of non-remarkable coexistence, and many instances of genocide perpetrated by either side against the other. There are a string of maybe 50 specific incidents over the last 50 years where tens of thousands have been slain. Bengal is another major epicenter for Hindu-Muslim friction.
The whole situation sort of resembles Southern Spain in a way, where there have been periods where Muslims and Christians have lived together peacefully, and many less peaceful times.

If muslim countries start being more open minded and less religiously stuck in the 5th century, maybe they can get back on the list but until then they just reap what they sow.
Uh, You got your times wrong. Fifth century is 400-499. Islam begins in the 7th century (600 AD).

Wasn't Pakistan created because the Muslims and Hindus could not get along?
Should we do this in the UK? In the US?
Let’s be honest...Muslims don’t play well with others.
I wonder what is driving this type of attitude.
What do you folks think?
