Very little as you can see from the stats: 82% of India is still Hindu while only 10% is Muslim. The rest is other.

Actually it's been the other way around. All Muslims in India and Pakistan as wel as Bangladesh differ from the Muslims in the Middle East in that these "Indian" Muslims are more culturally influenced by Hindus.

Yes it is very true, Islam had an enourmous influence on Indian culture, along with the world, and vice-versa. Much of South Asia's history, however, speaks of numerous conflicts between Hindus and Muslims. Hundreds of years of fighting and disagreements tested the true will of Indian culture-one of diverse ethnicities and backgrounds.

Hindi is a mixture of Sanskrit, arabic, persian, turkish and urdu Thumbs Up

That should be Hindi, the language and not Hindu.

Hindi predates Urdu and does have loan words from Arabic, Persian and Turkish.  It is derived and evolved from Sanskrit with lot of loan words from Arabic, Persian and Turkish. It is somewhat similar to Urdu in the sense that both have a similar base of various Prakrits.  It is different from Urdu that its structure is derived from Sanskrit, whereas Urdu's structure is not derived from Sanskrit.  A Hindi speaker can sometimes understand a lot of spoken Urdu but not all and vice-versa.  A Hindi speaker will find it difficult to understand spoken Persian or Arabic or Turkish except some words, although few times context of a sentence or a very short conversation can be made out based on understandable words.

When it comes to written understanding then a native speaker of Hindi will not understand or be able to read anything in either Urdu or Arabic or Persian or Turkish as they all use scripts which are different.  Same could be said for people versed in either Arabic script (Urdu or Arabic) or Persian script or Turkish script, as he or she will not be able to understand or read anything written in Hindi because of different script.  One has to be really trained to understand the written language.

So in a nutshell, 
Spoken:
Hindi and Urdu understandable to each other lot of the time,
Hindi and (Arabic, Persian or Turkish) not understandable to each other except for certain words,

Written:
Hindi and written (Urdu, Arabic, Persian or Turkish) not readable and therefore not understandable to each other at all.
