Minorities in post independent India have witnessed many ups and downs. The constitution of India which came into effect on 26th January 1950 has empowered the minorities by conferring some special fundamental rights under the constitution but it has achieved little objective. Although, plethora of legislative and executive efforts has been made by the governments to emancipate the status of minorities but the conditions have not improved much. The idea of inclusive development can be achieved only by mainstreaming of minorities in India which accounts for about 20 % of the total population of the country. The purpose of this Book is to highlight the true status of minorities in post independent India and focus on the ongoing efforts for the welfare of Minorities in India. The book shall also focus on the current challenges faced by minorities in our country and their optimum solution in a constitutional and democratic way.
