Islam spread to Indian communities along the Arab coastal trade routes of Gujarat and the Malabar coast soon after the religion’s appearance in the Arabian Peninsula. Islam arrived in the inland of the Indian subcontinent in the 7th century AD when the Arabs conquered Sindh and later to northern India through the conquest of the Ghurids in the 12th century AD and has since become a part of India’s religious and cultural heritage.The majority of India’s Muslims are Sunni, with Shia making up 13% of the population.
