Shanta Chhetri’s ZH, requesting Home Min to direct Meghalaya to grant minority status to Hindus
Thank you, Sir, for allowing me to speak. I would like to draw the kind attention of this august House to the fact that the Centre has told the Supreme Court that States can consider granting Hindus the minority status, if the community is not in a majority within their jurisdiction. If the Hindus are in minority in a particular State, they should be able to establish and administer educational institutions of their choice, in keeping with the rights guaranteed to the minorities by the Constitution. I humbly urge the august House to draw the kind attention of the hon. Home Minister to urgently direct the Meghalaya Government to grant minority status to Hindus via notification, as per Articles 29 and 30 of the Constitution of India.
