Approach NCM, SC tells petitioner seeking minority status for Hindus

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

New Delhi: The Supreme court on Friday asked a PIL petitioner seeking that Hindus be declared as minority community in eight states to approach the National Commission for Minorities.

The bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi permitted PIL petitioner and BJP leader Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay withdraw his petition and approach the NCM as he urged the court to declare that Hindus were a minority community in eight states including Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab.

Upadhyay has referred to December 18, 1992 resolution of the UN General Assembly and a judgment of the top court to back his plea seeking that Hindus be declared minority in the eight states – Jammu & Kashmit, Punjab (with 38 per cent of the population), Lakshdweep (2.5 per cent), Mizoram (2.75 per cent), Nagaland (8.75 per cent), Meghalaya (11.5 per cent), Manipur (31 per cent) and Arunachal Pradesh (29 per cent).
