PIL filed in Meghalaya HC to grant minority status to Hindus, Niam Khasi, Niam Tynrai and Songsarek communities
The petitioner alleges that “Section 2(c) of the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) Act is arbitrary and contrary to Articles 14, 15, 21, 25, 26, 29 & 30 of the Constitution. The Notification dated 23.10.1993 facilitates the violation of fundamental rights viz. right to health, right to education, right to shelter and right to livelihood, etc. It is also against the equality, justice, and secularism, the great golden goals of our Constitution.”..
