This chapter examines the situation for Parsis in post-independence Bombay in India. It suggests that prior to independence, Parsis were divided over the political future: many expressed concern about their fate in a land that had been divided over religion and feared the removal of the British rule under which they had flourished. In the early years of independence, Parsis were involved in India's political life and the growing communalism at the end of the 20th century has not resulted in any persecution of Paris.
