New Delhi | Opposing the central government’s decision to grant scholarships to 5 crore Muslim students the Akhil Bhartiya Sant Samaj has demanded minority status for Hindus staying in 8 states of India.
In a letter to the Central government, the saints have asked to clarify the definition of minorities. The letter has come after the Central government on the occasion of Eid granted scholarship to 5 crore minority students.
Mahatma Swami Jitendraanand Saraswati of Akhil Bharatiya Sant Samiti in a 9 points letter to the Prime Minister, Minority Welfare Ministry, Home Ministry and the Minority Commission has said that in the preamble of the Indian Constitution states the spirit of one person, one nation so the definition of minority as a word is not in the constitution.
The saint further alleged that in December 1992, for the first time by the Congress government constituted the Minority Commission in the Parliament and it was against the basic concept of the Constitution. He further asked,”Who is the minority in India?”
