Hindus are a minority in these 8 Indian states

A plea has been filed in the Supreme Court by BJP leader, Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay seeking minority status for Hindus in the above states. He has also sought for the notification on Minority Community to be repealed.

A repeal, thereof, 'except the State of Jammu and Kashmir' be served from Section 1(2) of the NCM Act, as it is invalid and against the Constitution and its basic structure," he said in his petition.

The plea states that it is the duty of the State to move beyond the minority-majority binary communal politics, which ironically passes for secularism in this country, has been the bane of our democracy.
