Jain Community Demands Minority Status

Members of Jain Community gave a memorandum to ADM (City) Mohammad Yaseen Pathan today. Addressing the Chief Minster, the community demanded Minority Status for Jain Community in Rajasthan.

Moti Singh Mehta, General Secretary of the community informed that Jains are distinct from Hindu Community, like Buddhist and they have different religious rituals and traits.

Mehta also mentioned, the community has been regarded as minority in 9 States across India, in Rajasthan the community comprises a mere 1.28 % of the total population of the State, while in India the proportion is only 0.47 % and therefore the community demands Minority Status.

Community members also drew attention of the ADM towards a letter, whereby a delegation met Prime Minister regarding the same issue.
