EQUAL RIGHTS FOR HINDUS

GRANTING EQUAL RIGHTS FOR HINDUS


Granting equal rights for Hindus through amendment of Articles 26 to 30 of the Constitution to remove the current constitutionally sanctioned discrimination against Hindus and bring in religious neutrality in affairs of state:

According to our Constitution, the State has no religion and is supposed to treat all religions and religious people equally and with equal respect without, in any manner, interfering with their right to freedom of religion, faith and worship. As evident from the sub-text of the debates of the Constituent Assembly, the rights assumed for the majority were only made explicit to the minorities as an assurance to the latter in the backdrop of the peculiar circumstances then prevailing in the aftermath of partition. In any case, it was never the intention of the makers of our Constitution to deny to the majority the rights expressly provided to the minority. Yet, it gradually led to interpretations of Articles 26 to 30 that only the minorities were given rights withheld from the majority generating an unhealthy feeling of discrimination among the majority community. It goes without saying that nursing any real or perceived grievance against the State by any section of citizens, majority or minority, is detrimental to the unity and integrity of the country.

Late Syed Shahabuddin, having understood the problem of the Constitutionally imposed disabilities on majority Hindus, had introduced a Private Member’s Bill No. 36 of 1995 in Lok Sabha to widen the scope of Article 30 of the Constitution by suitable amendment to include all communities and sections of citizens by substituting the word ‘minorities’ with “all sections of citizens” therein.

To restore equality among all the citizens of this country irrespective of religion, there is an imperative need to abolish this discriminatory legal regime and provide constitutional and legal parity among all sections of people irrespective of their religion by suitable amendments to the Articles 26to 30 of the Constitution,so that we Hindus would be able to enjoy the same rights, privileges, and protection of the law on par with the Minorities in matters of:

  1. Management of places of worship (Temples and Religious Endowments);
  2. Entitlement to various benefits from Government schemes, scholarships, benefits etc;
  3. Enabling teaching of traditional Indian knowledge and ancient texts of India ineducational institutions; and
  4. Establishment and administration of educational institutionsof their choice without undue interference of the Government and its agencies.

In this regard Dr. Satyapal Singh (prior to becoming Minister) introduced in Lok Sabha a Private Member’s Bill No. 226 of 2016 to amend Articles 26 to 30 of the Constitution. We reiterate that the amendments proposed in this Bill do not take any rights away from any community or groups, but only ensures that all sections including Hindus enjoy the same rights and privileges as are now available only to Minorities, and all are treated equally under the law.

Copies of (i) Dr.Satyapal Singh’s Private Member’s Bill No. 226 of 2016 in Lok Sabha; and (ii) Syed Shahabuddin’s Private Member’s Bill No. 36 of 1995 in Lok Sabha are enclosed herewith for ready reference

Accordingly, we request you to take action to get Dr. Satyapal Singh Private Member’s Bill No. 226 of 2016 pending in Lok Sabha passed immediately in the forthcoming session of the current Parliament itself.
