Discrimination Against Hindus In India

CENTRAL GOVERNMENT

1. Running Schools

  • Article 15(5) and 30 of our constitution ensures minority run schools are exempted from any kind of intervention from govt. even if is aided. In contrast, Hindu run schools, even if they are not govt. aided, will be subject to intervention.
  • Intervention includes Right to Education where only Hindu run schools are subject to mandatory quota of underprivileged, poor children. Not only this the state govt. do not refund the subsidised education offered by the school in time leading the school to closure because of financial distress.

2. NCMEI (National Commission for Minority Education Institutions)

  • The body that holds super powers in the education space cannot have members from Hindus although, Hindus are minorities in eight states of India. This is the same body that will make the decision whether Hindus can get minority rights in states like Jammu and Kashmir, Meghalaya etc.

3. Minority Only Scholarships

4. Pradhan Mantri Jan Vikas Karyakram (PMJVK)
  • The scheme was restructured during 2013-14 and the unit of planning for implementation was changed to Minority Concentration Blocks (MCB), Minority Concentration Towns (MCT) and Clusters of Minority Concentration Villages (COV).
