Have you ever heard of a country’s top leadership cheating the poorest of the poor? Well a research study published by two retired officers of Indian Police Service has highlighted the gross discrimination practiced by the UPA government against poorest sections of the majority community, namely the Hindus. In their seminally researched book, The Majority Report, Ram Kumar Ohri and Jai Prakash Sharma have laid bare the conspiracy hatched by our communal-coloured politicians to rob the daughters and sons of at least 35 crore poorest Hindus (living below the poverty line in villages) of their legitimate share in 20 million scholarships and financial largesse worth several lakh crore rupees showered on five minority communities, viz., the Muslims, the Christians, the Buddhists, the Sikhs and the Parsis in the name of inclusive development of minorities.
It will surely surprise you if the book were to inform you that in sharp contrast to the fabricated findings of the Sachar Committee in four out of the five globally recognised major human development indices the Hindus happen to be the most disadvantaged religious community in India. The five major globally recognised human development indices are Infant Mortality, Child Mortality, Life Expectancy at Birth, Degree of Urbanisation and Literacy. It stands conclusively proved by the data available in the public domain that the so-called five minorities privileged by the UPA for extraordinary favours which include the Muslims, the Christians, the Buddhists, the Sikhs and the Parsis, are far better placed than the Hindus in Infant Mortality, Child Mortality, Life Expectancy at Birth and Urbanisation. Only in Literacy the Hindus with an average of 65.1 per cent are better placed than the Muslims who have a literacy average of 59 per cent. But the four minorities, i.e., the Christians having 80.3 per cent literacy, the Buddhists having 72.7 per cent, the Sikhs having 69.4 per cent and the Parsis having 97.7 literacy averages are the real show stealers in education and literacy. Yet millions of scholarships were showered on them, too, along with Muslims.
The book shocks you beyond belief to know that according to the data released by the former Minister of Minority Affairs, Salman Khurshid, at a press conference on May 29, 2012, approximately twenty million scholarships (i.e., two crore freeships) were awarded to the students of the five minorities, while the poorest of the poor children among the country’s 80 per cent population were not given even one single scholarship simply because they belonged to the politically-pariahed majority community, i.e., the Hindus. In the garb of ‘inclusive development’ a ruthless and soulless programme of ‘exclusive development of five minorities’ constituting 20 per cent of India’s population was implemented by the UPA government for six years by trampling upon the Right to Equality of the majority community comprising 80 per cent of the nation’s population!
This book reveals the conspiratorial shenanigans of self-anointed secularists to favour the minorities at the cost of the poorest sections of the majority community by using the medium of the fabricated findings of the Sachar Report. Even a casual reading of Chapters 4 and 6 of The Majority Report will send you reeling into the surreal world of shock and disbelief! The two explosive chapters which are a must read have been captioned, ‘If You Are a Hindu’ and ‘Sixteen Simple Questions which Justice Sachar, Salman Khurshid and NAC Must Answer’.
