<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>In a development that might disrupt the Majority versus Minority debate in India, Congress leader in Maharashtra, Shehzad Poonawalla, has demanded that the governments in Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir grant minority status to Hindus in their respective states.In a scathing response to Poonawalla’s statement, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) called for the abolition of the minority status in the country altogether. The VHP accused the Congress of trying to divide Hindus and the Indian society.In a sharp reaction, VHP’s international joint general secretary Surendra Jain said: “The Supreme Court has observed in a case pertaining to the status of Jains as minority that minoritism must be done away with. In India, we must have equal rights according to our Constitutional status as citizens. We warn the Minority Commission that nothing like this must happen, or we shall campaign for the commission to be scrapped. The Congress is trying to divide the Indian society once more,” Jain said.
