Ghaziabad : BJP SC Morcha

Ghaziabad : BJP SC Morcha chalked out a nationwide campaign against the UPA government's move to grant Scheduled Caste status to dalits who has converted to Christianity and Islam. BJP SC Morcha here decided to hold state-level conventions on the issue from August 16 to 31 followed by a national rally in New Delhi on September 26. About four lakh members from various SC and ST communities are expected to attend the rally, SC Morcha leader Shant Prakash told reporters here on wednesday. He alleged that a move was afoot to grant SC status to converted Christians and Muslims based on the recommendations of Justice Rangnath Commission on Religious and Linguistic Minorities. The morcha said granting SC/ST status to converts is discriminatory and against the Constitution. If the status is accorded, the converted people would enjoy double benefit of SC as well as minority status.
