Please tell me what is expected of me with regards to my non Muslim neighbors, coworkers, and others in the general community here in India.
To be polite, friendly and present Islam in the best possible manner under peaceful circumstances. Nobody told you to take an AK47 and start killing Hindus.
Doesn't matter whether you are living under the reign of Aurangzeb or Narendra Modi.
However, your circumstances are changing and you are becoming akin to the situation in Kashmir and this is what you are not grasping. Majority of Hindus or Secularists DO NOT support you and certainly DO NOT support your right to follow Sunnah. They pay lip service to multi-ethnic existence but the day you tell them your views about LGBT (in Islam) they will run away from you.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
