Sir, Apropos the report `Minority rights, an entitlement: Sorabjee' (July 26). It is amusing to see the Attorney-General, Soli Sorabjee, differing with the Solicitor-General, Harish Salve, while placing his submissions before the 11-Judge Bench of the Supreme Court.
The Attorney-General reportedly contended that the rights under Article 30 were guaranteed to minorities because of the vulnerable position in which they were placed and that those rights were absolute.
If the language and religious tenets of the minorities are vulnerable, why not confine the rights under Article 30 to establishing language schools and institutes of theologies? Article 30 is the most commercially-misused one. It is time the rights are extended to non-minorities as well.
