“When the Civil Disobedience Movement started there was an atmosphere of suspicion and distrust between communities.” Why was it so? OR Why Muslims did not willingly participate in CDM?

Many Muslim leaders and intellectuals expressed their concern about the status of Muslims as a minority within India. They feared that the culture and identity of minorities would be submerged under the domination of a Hindu majority.
