BJP manifesto follows Savarkar's two-nation theory, ignores minorities: MCC

Sharply criticising the BJP manifesto, which it has sought to call Sankalp Patra (pledge document), the Gujarat-based civil rights organization, Minority Coordination Committee (MCC), has said that it has totally ignored the minorities, who form about 20% of India's population. Worse, it said, it is a document that seeks to follow the sectarian ideology of Damodar Savarkar's theory of two nation theory.
By seeking to undermine Articles 14 to 30 and 37, 38, 46, 51 (a), 347 and 350 of the Constitution of India, MCC said in a statement signed by its convener Mujahid Nafees, the document aims at making minorities even more deprived and vulnerable. Terming it a communal document to weaken the country's composite culture, MCC added, it has failed to address basic issues of education, employment, and people's participation.
