As the opposition party, BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) used to proclaim “justice for all and appeasement of none” as its fundamental principle; and used to condemn Congress (Indian National Congress) party’s discriminatory laws and minority-appeasing policies. Besides, BJP had promised to implement “Uniform Civil Code” in its Election Manifestoes of 2009, 2014 and 2019. But after getting power in 2014, the BJP government has forgotten about “justice for all and appeasement of none” and “Uniform Civil Code”.

Moreover, instead of dismantling the Congress-led governments’ pseudo-secular apparatus, BJP government has continued and expanded the Congress-led governments’ discriminatory, pseudo-secular and minority-appeasing laws and policies which are destroying Hindu civilization, one of the oldest surviving civilizations of the world. And immediately after winning the 2019 elections, BJP government declared five crore scholarships for minorities on June 5, 2019.

Logically in 1947, on India’s partition on a religious basis, creation of Pakistan truncated India should have been declared a Hindu republic. Instead, the hoax of “pseudo-secularism” was foisted on India.

This write-up describes how despite Constitutional mandate of “justice” and “equality”, and despite Article 15(1) of Constitution prohibiting discrimination on grounds of religion, pseudo-secular policies have divided the nation into majority and minority. It describes various laws and policies favouring minorities and discriminating against the majority. It also gives the do-able and easy solution for ending this discrimination. This discrimination acts as an invitation to vulnerable sections of Hindu society to convert to a minority religion if they want to avail of benefits being given to minorities.

Besides, it is fragmenting Hindu society since to escape discrimination, some Hindu sects proclaim that they are not Hindu. While earlier, Ramakrishna Mission had claimed itself to be a minority, now many Lingayats in Karnataka want minority tag.

Nation divided into majority and minority

Logically in 1947, on India’s partition on a religious basis, creation of Pakistan truncated India should have been declared a Hindu republic. Instead, the hoax of “pseudo-secularism” was foisted on India.

Though the term “secularism” implies separation of state and religion; “equality before law”, same rights and same laws for every citizen; and non-discrimination on grounds of religion, anything which is discriminatory and pro-minority is “secularism” in India.

Though Indian Constitution does not define the terms ‘majority’ and ‘minority’, vide the Congress government’s “National Commission for Minorities Act, 1992”, the nation got divided into ‘majority’ and ‘minority’ on a religious basis. As per this Act, Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Zoroastrians were notified as minority communities in October 1993, and Jains in January 2014.

Chapters 6 entitled “Equitable and Inclusive Education: Learning for All” and Chapter 14 entitled “Equity and Inclusion in Higher Education” are the more important parts of this policy.

Some discriminatory policies are described as follows:

1. Special privileges for minorities

While BJP was in opposition, it had labelled the Congress-led government’s creation of Sachar Committee and Ministry of Minority Affairs in 2006 as communal, divisive and “appeasement” of minorities.

But after getting power in 2014, instead of abolishing the Ministry of Minority Affairs, the BJP government has continued this Ministry and has vastly expanded minority-appeasement policies. It has launched many new schemes including those named as “Nai Manzil”, “Nai Udaan”, “Naya Savera”, “Shaadi Shagun”, “Padho Pardesh” etc. etc. for minorities.

Under these schemes, the government is giving various financial and educational incentives, pre-matric and post-matric scholarships, free-ships, free special coaching etc; to minority students/candidates for admission for professional courses and for recruitment for government jobs, financial incentives for higher studies in foreign universities; etc. etc.

BJP government is allocating thousands of crores of rupees for these schemes for minorities every year.

Besides, renaming it as Pradhan Mantri Jan Vikas Karyakram, BJP Government has expanded Congress-led government’s Multi-sectoral Development Plan for Minorities to 308 districts.

2. New Education Policy, 2020

BJP government’s New Education Policy (NEP), 2020 further expands minority-appeasement in the field of education. NEP, 2020 is a very lengthy document. Many persons are praising this policy without having read it.

Chapters 6 entitled “Equitable and Inclusive Education: Learning for All” and Chapter 14 entitled “Equity and Inclusion in Higher Education” are the more important parts of this policy.

Chapter 6 has created a special category named as Socio-Economically Disadvantaged Groups (SDEGs), and has included minorities in these groups. Since the earlier educational system was having special provisions for SC, ST, OBCs, and females. NEP, 2020 include minorities also for special treatment as part of “SEDGs”. Chapter 6 also stipulates that “regions of the country with large populations from educationally-disadvantaged SEDGs should be declared Special Education Zones (SEZs)”.

Like for school education, Chapter 14 dealing with higher education also contains many special privileges for college education which SEDGs including minorities have been given. These include, inter alia, special funds, special scholarships, creation of separate colleges and universities, relaxation of norms for admissions etc. etc.

Government has done nothing to amend Articles 29 and 30 to extend the rights stipulated therein to every community, whether majority or minority.

3. Right to Free Education Act, 2009

The Congress-led government brought “Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009” providing for government’s stringent control only over Hindu-run schools since Minority-run schools are exempted from this Act.

This Act stipulates many stiff conditions for Hindu-run schools apart from requiring these schools to provide free education (with negligible compensation from the government) to at least 25% of students from weaker sections.

This Act has made the cost of Hindu-run schools prohibitive resulting in the closure of thousands of Hindu-run schools. In February 2016, National Independent Schools Alliance protested in New Delhi against this Act and appealed for its repeal or suitable amendment.

Despite the damage caused by this Act to Hindu-run schools, the BJP government has neither repealed nor amended this Act for giving uniform treatment to all schools, whether run by majority or by the minority community.

4. Cultural and Educational Rights

Articles 29 and 30 of the Indian Constitution deal with cultural and educational rights of Minorities.

Article 30 entitles minorities to establish educational institutions of their choice.

Though these Articles were meant to ensure equality between the majority and minority communities, in actual practice, Hindus have been deprived of the freedom to run their educational institutions while minorities get full freedom in this regard.

Government has done nothing to amend Articles 29 and 30 to extend the rights stipulated therein to every community, whether majority or minority.

5. Control of Hindu places of worship

All prominent Hindu temples all over India, and having assets worth thousands of crores of rupees, are under government’s control. But minority places of worship enjoy freedom from government control.

The government’s control of Hindu temples and their estates is depriving Hindus of their right to religious freedom guaranteed under Articles 25 and 26 of the Indian Constitution and is also depriving Hindus of the self-supporting infrastructure of their places of worship. Government has taken no action to liberate Hindu temples from government control to treat Hindus at par with other communities in religious matters.

6. “Uniform Civil Code-pledge” is not honoured

The single policy which can undo discriminatory laws and policies is the Uniform Civil Code. But though proclaimed as a secular country, India has no uniform Civil Code despite having Uniform Criminal Code.

Though Uniform Civil Code will make India a really secular country, though Supreme Court has suggested its enactment in a number of its judgements; though Article 44 of Indian Constitution stipulates that, “The State shall endeavour to secure for the citizens a Uniform Civil Code throughout the territory of India”, and though BJP had promised its implementation in its Election Manifestoes of 2009, 2014 and 2019, BJP government has not honoured its said pledge so far with the result that discriminatory laws and policies are continuing.

7. Bill for equal rights not passed

In 2016, Dr Satya Pal Singh, BJP member of Lok Sabha had introduced Bill number 226 seeking amendment of Articles 15, and Articles 25 to 30 to extend the religious, educational and cultural rights stipulated therein to every community, whether majority or minority. This Bill wanted to treat Hindus at par with other communities.

Shockingly, despite its majority in Lok Sabha, the BJP government did not pass this Bill. And the Bill lapsed with the result that discrimination against Hindus in religious, educational and cultural matters is continuing.

The only solution

As aptly put by Eleanor Roosevelt, “No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.”

The above-mentioned disgraceful discrimination will continue until the victims of discrimination stand up against it.

Let us see the record of two major political parties.

Congress Party has been minority-centric in its approach. And ever since getting power in 2014, BJP government has continued Congress-led governments’ discriminatory laws and vastly expanded minority-appeasing policies.

Considering this hapless situation, nationalists must reject both Congress and BJP, and form a new and strong political party which would liberate the country from the slavery of pseudo-secularism and ensure same rights and same laws for every Indian citizen irrespective of his religion.

However, till such a political party materializes, nationalists must come out of their comfort zone and conceptual confusion and do their utmost to launch a strong, peaceful, lawful and sustained movement to request the government to take the following actions at the earliest:

  • BJP government must abolish the Ministry of Minority Affairs, and help all deserving Indian citizens irrespective of their religion. And it requires just a Cabinet decision to do so.
  • As BJP had promised to implement Uniform Civil Code in its Election Manifestoes of 2009, 2014 and 2019, BJP government must honour the said pledge and implement it.

Both the above actions are easily do-able. And both these actions are indispensable for the survival of Hindu civilization and for transforming India into a just, fair, strong, harmonious, and united nation.

  1. Same laws and same and equal rights for every Indian citizen irrespective of his religion would certainly transform India into “a just, fair, strong, harmonious, and united nation” as mentioned in this article. Moreover, no one can have any objection to confer same and equal rights to every Indian citizen irrespective of his religion.

  2. धर्म के आधार पर कोई भेदभाव नहीं होना चाहिए अरोड़ा साहब ने बहुत अच्छा आर्टिकल लिखा है धर्म के आधार पर कोई भेदभाव नहीं होना चाहिए यह हमें संविधान में अधिकार मिला हुआ है

  3. A very detailed, thoughtfully critical analysis with actual suggestions as how to achieve the very fundamental goals enshrined in the Indian Constitution. I express my gratitude to Shri Arora Ji for this excellent article-a beacon of light. This has to be achieved. Jai Bharat!

  4. This article is just excellent. It brings to fore the discriminatory provisions of law in our country. These policies are clearly in violation of Fundamental Right of Equality enshrined in Article 14 of the Constitution of India. They are against the provisions of Article 15(1) of the Constitution also. No government is willing to end or amend them due to policy of vote bank appeasement. We must unite and make effort to get these discriminatory provisions in various laws repealed. Though it appears quite difficult yet we have to raise our voice against this discrimination.

    I am thankful to Shri J. G. Arora for highlighting this issue. I fully support his views.

  5. Hindu civilization and Sanatan Dharma are very ancient. But because of policies of pseudo secularism, they have started to decline. People are forgetting their religion, their culture and their civilization. The country is stuck in minorityism and majoritarianism. The future of Hindu civilisation looks bleak. In this case, this article will act as a catalyst to save Hindu civilisation. Public awakening is an absolute necessity.

  6. Demographic Jihad & Soul harvesting Criminals are rapidly destroying the Sanatan Civilization…

    To prevent a genocide & annihilation of Hindus as it has happened in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh & Indonesia etc

    Hindus must have three child families & send atleast one child abroad to spread the sanatan civilization.

  7. BJP pledged Common Civil Code and many other core issues of National importance. It’s still not done. The country is getting dehinduised and destroyed. Every true patriot feels betrayed. It’s time for BJP leadership to act immediately and call special session of parliament and implement common civil code. BJP must act now otherwise it’s game is over. No UCC, No vote

  8. बाल्यकाल से संघ का स्वयंसेवक रहा, राष्ट्रहित में सदैव भाजपा को वोट दिया, निःस्वार्थ भाव से सहयोग किया। भाजपा ने समान आचार संहिता का वादा सदैव किया, अपने घोषणा पत्र में प्रमुख स्थान भी दिया। दो बार वाजपेयी जी की सरकार बनी, अब दो बार मोदी जी की पूर्ण बहुमत सरकार बनी, मोदी सरकार को 6 वर्ष से अधिक हो गए है। कश्मीर से कन्याकुमारी, कच्छ से लेकर कामरूप तक हिंदुओं को चुन चुन कर मारा जा रहा है। केरल में संघ के स्वयंसेवक और बंगाल में भाजपा कार्यकर्ताओं को निर्दयता से मारा जा रहा है, पर नेतृत्व मौन है। अगर अब भी सामान आचार संहिता बना कर के हिंदुओं को सुरक्षा नहीं दी गई तो यह दुखद स्थिति 1947 से भी अधिक भयावह हो जाएगी। मेरठ, कैराना, शामली, कांधला..हर जगह से हिन्दू पलायन कर रहा है। राष्ट्र, धर्म और समाज के शीर्ष पर बैठा नेता मौन है। यह चुप्पी खतरनाक है। केरल व बंगाल के हिंदुओं का दर्द देखकर मन रोता है, दुखी होता है। संघ के हर स्वयंसेवक को आवाज़ उठानी ही होगी।

    • आप असंख्य हिंदुओं की भावनाओं का प्रतिनिधित्व करते हैं।

  9. Greater India was partitioned into 8 countries in history. After independence Hindus have become minority in 9 states. If this unilateral war against Hindus is not stopped, The very existence of nation is at stake. A Patriot must be ready to defend his Motherland against all its enemies. Nation needs statesman leadership. Bharat needs Brave Leaders like Guru Govind Singh Ji, Maharana Pratap, Maharaj Surajmal or Shivaji Maharaj

  10. Spreading misinformation-disinformation by Social Media, Manipulation by electronic media, Suppression of Patriotic Voices, and Creating anti national pockets by Planned Garrymandering is destroying Nation. It’s seems selfish politicians are in collision with enemies of nation who believe in destroying India by thousand cuts . Wake up Bharat…. Arise..Awake…And Act decisively

  11. Best Article I have ever seen after such a long time. It’s seems that being Hindu is a crime in World’s largest democracy. BJP should perform or perish.

  12. Excellent analysis. Atleast someone has the courage to express the Truth. Salute to Arora Sahab. Jai Hind

  13. When we say India is democratic nation there should be no discrimination A common civil code is must No discrimination should be on the basis of cast creed and religion we are unnecessarily more liberal This is Sanatan Hindu Rashtra

  14. The ideals of “JUSTICE”, “LIBERTY”, “EQUALITY”, AND “FRATERNITY” guaranteed to every Indian citizen as per Preamble of Indian Constitution can be delivered only by ensuring same laws and same and equal rights for every Indian citizen without any consideration of the religion professed by him.

  15. Excellent article on the apathy of Indian Government towards Hindus. As followers of Sanatana Dharma, we should be more vocal and proactive about our rights and responsibilities.

    • It is naive to believe, that no one can destroy Sanatan civilization, remember,
      “those who forget history are condemned to repeat it”

      Where have the Hindus of central Asia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh & Indonesia gone???

      Where are the Hindus of Kashmir…What awaits them in Kerala, Assam & West Bengal???

      A dire fate awaits the remaining Sanatan civilization in Bharat, if the percentage of Hindu population continues to fall due to religious conversions & demographic assault.

      Regarding Hindus conspiring to destroy our civilization, Gandhi & Nehru are the prime examples…

      • And foreign funded birth control campaign against Hindus of India. Listen to Melinda gates talk about this.

        In fact, who is being sterilized in India by these foundations?

      • None can save someone who keeps running away from the present because he believes in “those who forget the past” nonsense… There is no excuse for not doing your daily sadhana, no excuse for not fixing your perception before trying to fix others.

        “Correcting oneself is correcting the whole world. The Sun is simply bright. It does not correct anyone. Because it shines, the whole world is full of light. Transforming yourself is a means of giving light to the whole world.”

        History book is no substitute to Vedanta.

    • You are being silly. You already lost major land mass and 6-9 states will break away if allowed. You think the Balkans can’t repeat here?

      And they don’t have to destroy anything. Just like they eliminate paganism but kept the festivities and things like Kaaba and Easter, they will do the same if allowed.

      Remember they have 2000 years and 1400 years experience destroying civilizations. You only have experience loosing territory.

    • It is a shame that the precious Hindu mandate is being wasted on non-issues that are of no concern to the Hindu civilization like triple talaq & Halala.

      Hindu voters have not given the mandate for wasting Tax payers hard earned money on providing minority scholarships…

    • धर्म के आधार पर किसी के साथ कोई भेदभाव नहीं होना चाहिए धर्म के आधार पर हमें संविधान से समान अधिकार मिला हुआ है अरोड़ा साहब ने बहुत अच्छा आर्टिकल लिखा है जो हम हिंदुओं के समान अधिकार की बात कर रहे हैं अरोड़ा साहब को बहुत-बहुत धन्यवाद

  16. Excellent article…absolutely eye opening and a must read for those who want a real change in and around Indian atmosphere!!

  17. सनातन धर्म एवम् भारतीय संस्कृति के उत्थान के लिए सर्वोतकृष्टता पूर्ण आलेख । जनजागरण अभियान में सहायक । भविष्य में भी ऐसे प्रेरक लेख की आशा एवम् शुभकामना के साथ ।

  18. As rightly mentioned in this article, victims of discrimination must oppose discrimination by all lawful and peaceful means. And as per the dictates of real secularism, discriminatory laws and divisive policies must be replaced by same laws and same rights for all Indian citizens irrespective of their religion.

  19. Thank You. I served in the Indian Army and I never had the opportunity to participate in partisan politics. I would not view this issue in terms of political performance of either the Congress or the BJP.
    As a nationalist, I view this issue as the perpetuation of the British policy of Divide and Rule. India achieved its political independence in 1947 strictly on the terms dictated by the Imperialistic power that ruled over India’s destiny.
    To some extent, I may rationalize the motives of the British Empire to perpetuate its power by wilful subjugation, repression, suppression, and domination of the people of the British Colony. After attaining full independence, there is no excuse for any political party of India to use the British Policy to keep itself in power.
    I would openly ask the Indian Prime Minister to take the challenge and give the people their true freedom. We cannot be free while we actually live and work as slaves. The Bharatiya Janata Party must take the risk of losing its political power and take steps to end the policies of discrimination based upon religion, language, region, caste, and ethnicity. We must truly aspire to be free and equal people united by one law, the supreme law of the Land.

  20. Discriminatory laws and policies on the basis of religion of various citizens would damage the social fabric of any country. By giving same rights and and same laws to every Indian citizen irrespective of his religion is the first requirement of any secular country. And as per its Constitution, India is declared as a secular country.
    Early implementation of Uniform Civil Code as promised in BJP’s Election Manifestoes of 2009, 2014 and 2019 would be in the best interest of the nation.

  21. My Revised Comment…..
    BJP gave Very Nice and Attractive Slogan… “EK BHARAT, SHRESTHA BHARAT” (एक भारत, श्रेष्ठ भारत) … but, in ACTUAL PRACTICE, BJP Government is NOT ABLE TO PUSH THIS POLICY in THE NATION…. FEELING VERY SAD ABOUT THIS.

    YOUR THIS ARTICLE HAS CORRECTLY POINTED OUT, THAT, HOW INDIAN CONSTITUTION IS BEING SET ASIDE BY SUCCESSIVE GOVERNMENTS.

    THANKS FOR CORRECTLY SUMMING UP THE POLICIES OF INDIAN POLITICIANS, WHEN THEY COME TO POWER…

    THANK YOU AGAIN.

  22. BJP gave Very Nice and Attractive Slogan… “EK BHARAT, SHRESTHA BHARAT”… but, in ACTUAL PRACTICE, BJP Government is ENGAGED in DISINTEGRATION of THE NATION.

    YOUR THIS ARTICLE HAS CORRECTLY POINTED OUT, THAT, HOW INDIAN CONSTITUTION IS BEING SET ASIDE BY SUCCESSIVE GOVERNMENTS.

    THANKS FOR CORRECTLY SUMMING UP THE POLICIES OF INDIAN POLITICIANS, WHEN THEY COME TO POWER…
    THANK YOU AGAIN.

  23. Great expose on the reckless policies being implemented by successive governments including the present NDA government which are destroying Hindu civilization.

  24. This is an excellent article.
    The author has nicely clarified all the facts and has given a just, fair, equitable and do-able solution. It is shocking that BJP government has continued the Congress-led governments’ discriminatory laws and policies which are damaging Hindu civilization. It must be ensured that all Indian citizens are governed by the same laws; and enjoy the same and equal rights. That would be real secularism.

  25. Cornell university has a PhD thesis on topic called the saffron wave. Take a read and see how the conclusions compare with what you have.
