Soon after the 1979 revolution in Iran under Ayatollah Khomeini, many Western ambassadors were making snide remarks about ‘your Muslims’-lumping non-Christians together. Why question the West and its leaders, who know very little about the various sects of Islam, Indian Hindu leaders also know very little. Or enquire from a Sunni Muslim and he would talk about Shia Muslims full of disdain if not contempt, almost on the lines of the high caste Brahmins talking about Dalits in private or in rural areas. Even in today Indian Republic.
