Basically, there are several problems. The obvious ones are the same problems infecting everyone else, i.e the rise of liberalism, people mixing culture with Islam, and a lot of Sufi-type bidah.
There are some additional problems though that I find mostly limited to Hindustan, most notably, this Uncle Tom attitude a lot of Hindustanis who were born Muslim have. A lot of them feel the need to talk smack about their Muslim neighbours in Pakistan and be hyper-nationalistic about being Hindustani, whilst apologising for how Muslims dominated Hindustan for a thousand years and acting like those people have nothing to do with them (even though they are descended from them). The funniest part is, Hindustan still doesn't accept them (they get lynched, their Masjid's are taken down, Hindustani places are getting their Muslim names replaced with Hindu ones, Hindustanis cry whenever Muslims give their kids Islamic sounding names, Hindustanis consider them foreign to the land, etc).
It's all because Muslims are no longer the main power in the region. Once the Mughal era ended, you had a few Muslim dynasties spread across the region but none of them had a monopoly over it like they used to. As a result of this power vacuum, the British came in and conquered most of South Asia as well as Burma, this formed what was known as British India. Afterwards, British India was split into the modern nations of Hindu majority Hindustan and Muslim majority Pakistan (the latter then split into Pakistan and Bangladesh). Since Hindustan is a democracy, it means the Muslim minority is de-facto subservient to the Hindu majority. What makes it even sadder is Hindustani Muslims did kinda shoot themselves in the foot since most of them were actively against Pakistan forming for some pretty delusional reasons, e.g some of them thought they could somehow take over the place again if Muslims remained unified.
