A PIL has been filed in the Allahabad High Court seeking to declare the NCMEI Act 2004 unconstitutional.
This promises to go all the way to the Supreme Court and turn into a landmark case and I hope it does. I have documented the origins and activities of the NCMEI in my previous post (Bulwarks against redefining minorities in Indias education sector]. Please go through it. It is the duty of social media to ensure public debate of this case, because these laws are key components of the Idea of India and will be suppressed.
I would frame the following questions:
- NCMEI Act 2004 sets up a body with powers of a civil court – but Hindus are explicitly barred from becoming either the chairperson or members of this court.
Sec 4 (1) (a)
4. Qualifications for appointment as Chairperson or other Member.
