Abstract

Recognition and protection of minority rights under a legal framework has two fold objectives –firstly to prevent state from being oppressive against the minorities as in a democratic setup government is run by majority, secondly to provide the minority a protective zone whereby they can preserve their separate identity while contributing in national development and progress. This Article analyses the concept of minority and minority rights in India. It also seeks to highlights the historical perspective of Minority as well as the provisions of National Commission on Minority. Some suggestions have been given for the empowerment of the Minority in Indian context.

Keywords: Minority, Citizens, Indians, Society
