NEW DELHI, SEPT. 23. The All-India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat today condemned the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's demand for withdrawal of constitutional benefits of the Scheduled Tribes if they convert to other religions.
"This amounts to denial of human rights and religious freedom," the AIMMM president and former MP, Syed Shabuddin, said.
He drew attention to a resolution adopted by the Kendriya Karyakari Mandal at its meeting here, which demanded that members of the Scheduled Tribes who embrace Christianity or any other religion be barred from enjoying the constitutional benefits such as government employment and the right to contest from reserved seats.
