How? I suppose, as a human, you adapt yourself to what life brings you and navigate the shoals.
The entire Muslims-Hindu relationship in India is predicated on a very sensible Muslim perception that Hindus are physical cowards, risk-averse, confrontation-fearing, and their so-called theological openness is only making a virtue out of not having a singular driving focus on Allah. I bet even a Muslim child will be able to articulate this with clarity.
All you, as a Hindu, can do is try and adjust the reality about yourself, and do it consistently enough, so that the Muslim will have to either adjust his perception, or reap the consequences of delusion.
Of you can confirm and reinforce the perception, of course.
