MPJ Maharashtra Observes Minority day

The Movement for Peace & Justice for Welfare, Maharashtra celebrated December 18 as Minority Rights Day across the state and organized different activities to aware people regarding various legal and constitutional rights provisioned by the Government of India for the welfare of minority communities of the country. In fact, December 18 has been declared to be the Minority day by the National Commission for Minorities. It is to be mentioned here that, that the United nations organization adopted the declaration on the Rights of Persons belonging to National or Ethnic National or and Linguistic Minorities on this day in 1992.  The UN declaration on minority states that: “States shall protect the existence of the national or ethnic, cultural, religious and linguistic identity of minorities within their respective territories and encourage conditions for the promotions of that identity”.

So far as the Minority rights are concerned, there is nothing special about it. These are simply normal individual
