India’s president urged to end pro-Hindu bias in scholarship awards

Catholic World News - June 13, 2013

Representatives of Isai Maha Sangh, a Catholic organization, and Rastriya Secular Manch, a Muslim organization, met with Indian President Pranab Mukherjee and called for an end to discrimination against non-Hindus in scholarship awards in Madhya Pradesh.

The central Indian state has been governed by the Hindu Bharatiya Janata Party for nine years.

“The financial resources of the state have been used to protect and promote the development of the faithful of the Hindu community,” representatives of Isai Maha Sangh, and Rastriya Secular Manch stated. Christian Dalits (untouchables), said Father Anand Muttungal of Rastriya Secular Manch, suffer particularly from discrimination.
