Muslims flock to Juhu Beach, poor sanitation in neighbourhood is reason?

In a recent Twitter post, a user highlighted the plight of Muslim neighborhoods in Mumbai, and their residents’ frequent visits to Juhu Beach. A recent video has sparked a conversation about Mumbai’s Juhu Beach becoming a popular spot for the city’s Muslim community. 

The Twitter user @KanishkaDadhich posted a video with caption, "Mumbai's Juhu beach becomes Muślim hideout!". The tweet sparked a conversation about the systemic issues faced by these communities and the urgent need for policy reform.

Twitter users have also criticized the post, expressing concern about the potential invasion of privacy and safety of the individuals in the video

Later a Twitter user @darab_farooqui outlined several reasons why residents of Muslim neighborhoods are drawn to Juhu Beach. Among these reasons are the lack of parks, proper roads, sanitation, schools, and regular cleaning in Muslim neighborhoods. These areas also suffer from inadequate water and electricity supply, and a lack of proper water drainage systems.

Why Muslims flock to Juhu Beach

The user pointed out that these neighborhoods have a much higher population density than the rest of the city due to systemic, social, and political oppression. This has resulted in Muslims being forced into specific neighborhoods, allowing the government to implement policies that largely ignore these areas.

Government educational and developmental schemes rarely reach these neighborhoods, and banks and financial institutions, with the help of the government, have marked these areas in such a way that obtaining loans and credit is nearly impossible. The user also pointed out the lack of affirmative action in these neighborhoods.

The user further highlighted that Muslim neighborhoods are gerrymandered, reducing the political influence of the Muslim vote and leading to a lack of development. These areas are often policed heavily, leading to further persecution and oppression.

The user ended the post by calling for an open discussion about India’s systemic oppression of Muslims through policy and administration. They urged for a change in the narrative and a shift towards policies that ensure equitable development and social justice.
