by Ayush Nadimpalli

Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi accomplished his three day historic and far acclaimed go to to america of America on the night June twenty third, 2023.

In an try and drive an agenda of #Islamophobia , former President Barak Hussain Obama in an interview with CNN Worldwide mentioned


“I believe it’s true that if the president meets with Prime Minister Modi, then the safety of the Muslim minority in a majority-Hindu India, that’s one thing price mentioning,” 

“If I had a dialog with Prime Minister Modi, who I do know nicely, a part of my argument can be that if you don’t defend the rights of ethnic minorities in India, that there’s a sturdy risk in some unspecified time in the future that India begins pulling aside,” 

Whereas Obama was largely ignored, as anticipated it gave a fill-up to some sections of media to someway painting a detrimental picture. Few portals have uncovered Obama’s double-speak and hypocrisy and his monitor file of trigger untold human struggling the world-over .

Nonetheless, it’s time for us to set the narrative proper on who’s a minority in a rustic as huge as Bharat & the historic context.

In the course of the Constituent Meeting dialogue, Sardar Patel had this to say concerning the Muslims as regards to minority.

A minority that might drive the partition of the nation just isn’t a minority in any respect. Why do you assume that you’re a minority. If you’re a powerful, well-knit and well-organised minority, why do you wish to declare safeguards, why do you wish to declare privilegesIJ It was all proper when there was a 3rd occasion: However that’s throughout. That dream is a mad dream and it ought to be forgotten altogether

excerpts from a speech Sardar Patel made within the Constituent Meeting

It’s one other matter that his views had been ignored by the later leaders. We now have a state of affairs the place in Hindus are in a minority in 9 states and UT’s Ladakh, Mizoram, Lakshadweep, Kashmir, Nagaland, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Punjab and Manipur and but the Hindu can not even set up and administer academic establishments of their selection in these States. Even in circumstances the place Hindus are decrease than 10%, they’re nonetheless formally handled as the bulk !

As per a report by Dainik Bhaskar, Hindus are a minority in 102 districts of the 775 Districts within the nation. Another organisations have put this determine at 200 districts. The state of affairs is alarming. Not like the followers of the Abrahamic faiths, most faiths that come below the Hindu pantheon are unorganised. The place the Hindus are in a minority, this interprets to main challenges at grassroots esp when there are conditions of aggression. Surprisingly, even right here the Hindus are handled as the bulk and tagged with practising “majoritarism” .

Supreme Court docket on Minorities :

The Supreme Court docket on July 18, 2022 mentioned “Minority standing of spiritual and linguistic communities is “State-dependent.” The courtroom indicated {that a} spiritual or linguistic neighborhood which is a minority in a selected State can inherently declare safety and the precise to manage and run its personal academic establishments below Articles 29 and 30 of the Structure.

Senior advocate Arvind Datar for Sri Devkinandan Thakur making his submissions within the case mentioned that Hindus residing in sure States had been unable to train their rights below Articles 29 and 30 within the absence of a selected notification declaring them a minority. This has not occurred since then and might be a place to begin for varied stakeholders in States and Union Territories to take applicable steps together with social and political awakening on the topic.

As well as, information of aggression – rioting- intolerance and so forth must be mapped to demographics upto the district- taluka / mandal stage. The narrative of placing the Hindus in dock needs to be as soon as and for all busted.
