India state-run banks ‘turn away Muslims’

State-owned banks in India have been accused of discriminating against the country’s Muslim minority.

India’s minorities watchdog has received a record number of complaints from Muslims who say they have been prevented from opening bank accounts.

India’s Muslim community is among the poorest in the country.

Some bankers say it is not so much their religious background, but their economic status that makes it hard for Muslims to get banking facilities.
