Center shock for Dalits.. If they convert to those two religions, all benefits of SC will be cancelled

Some Dalits who are SC (Scheduled Castes) in our country are changing their religion. It seems that the central government, which wanted to break this situation, has decided to cancel the benefits provided to them under SC status. The central government has told the Supreme Court that if Dalits convert to Islam or Christianity, they will no longer get the benefits of SC status. She explained that there is a special order in the constitution for this.

The Center has told the Supreme Court that the SCs Order 1950 of the Constitution will not uphold any unconstitutional aspect. Untouchability explains that the order does not make any exception for SCs to convert to Christianity, Islam, etc. for some other reason. Amendments are being made to this order in the Constitution over time. According to this, a person who declares a religion other than Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism as their religion is not considered a member of Scheduled Caste (SC).

The Center has told the Supreme Court that it has not accepted the proposal of the Justice Ranganath Mishra Commission. This commission proposed that Dalit Christians and Dalit Muslims should also be included in the list of SCs. The Center said it was a flawed proposal.

The Center gave a fresh clarification in response to a plea filed in the Supreme Court, saying that the Scheduled Castes Order 1950 is against Article 14 of the Constitution, which states the right to equality, and Article 15, which prohibits religious discrimination. The Center gave this clarification on Wednesday before a bench headed by Justice SK Kaul.

The center has recently constituted a committee to give a report on the issue of giving SC status to those who have changed their religion due to some reasons. The committee is chaired by former Supreme Court Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan. The Center has told the Supreme Court that this committee will submit its report in the next two years.
