    Gujarat HC says in it ruling that awarding scholarship to school kids on the basis of belonging to the 5 minority religions i.e. Muslim, Sikh, Christian, Parsi and Buddhist is discriminatory to the kids belonging to other sections such as SC, ST, OBC, etc who are equally poor and/or deprived. Further the judgement says - “Will people from other communities whose annual income is less than Rs. 1 lakh and whose children are equally (or more) meritorious be deprived of Government patronage only because they belong to different religions other than five minority religions?”

    Gujarat HC has expressed its displeasure with the palpably blatant discrimination inherent in the Scheme which has the effect of depriving a poor child securing 90% marks just because he happened to belong to a religion other than the religion of a comparably poor child who secures 51% (and who, therefore, gets the scholarship solely because of his religion).

    Adam Chaki is son of a ..... He has filled a lot of petitions in HC. There're so many "B teams" of Congress working here night and day but everybody fails miserably to tackle down Modi.
