dc.description<p>As the Millennium Development Goals' target date of 2015 approaches, this paper assesses the progress made by India&rsquo;s Muslim population on indices of social development and the plausibility of meeting the MDG targets. The MDGs have been criticized for ignoring the specific vulnerabilities that minorities are faced with: discrimination, powerlessness and susceptibility to violence. Drawing on a variety of sources, the paper points to inequities in education, income and health. It recommends addressing security concerns and adopting disaggregated goals for a post-2015 framework that take into account the specificities of disempowerment and marginalization faced by minority groups. Given India&rsquo;s entrenched social hierarchy and complex cultural diversity, it is important to evaluate group-specific performance in assessing the framework&rsquo;s achievements and relevance.</p>en_US
