Bootstrap modal appearing under background

I have used the code for my modal straight from the Bootstrap example, and have included only the bootstrap.js (and not bootstrap-modal.js). However, my modal is appearing underneath the grey fade (backdrop) and is non editable.

Here's what it looks like:

modal hiding behind backdrop

See this fiddle for one way to reproduce this problem. The basic structure of that code is like this:

    <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.</p>    

    <div class="my-module">
        This container contains the modal code.
        <div class="modal fade">
            <div class="modal-dialog">
                <div class="modal-content">
                    <div class="modal-body">Modal</div>
body {
    padding-top: 50px;

.my-module {
    position: fixed;
    top: 0;
    left: 0;

Any ideas why this is or what I can do to fix this?
