  MOHAMMAD ZEESHAN       Monday, 27 November 2017

The Constitution of India recognises:

A. only religious minorities
B. only linguistic minorities
C. religious and linguistic minorities
D. religious, linguistic and ethnic minorities

Answer: C. religious and linguistic minorities

The Constitution of India uses the word ‘minority’ or its plural form in some Articles Article 20 to 30 and 350 A to 350 B, but does not define the word ‘minority’.
However, several Supreme Court judgments have sought to define minority at the state level in term of protection under Article 30. The SC in TMA Pai Foundation & ors vs State of Karnataka & ors consider the question of the unit for the purpose of determining the definition of ‘minority’ within the meaning of Article 30(1). It held that ‘a minority either linguistic or religious is determinable only by reference to the demography of the State and not by taking into consideration the population of the country as a whole’.
The Constitution of India recognises only Linguistic and Religious Minorities
