Delhi Bengali school claims “Linguistic Minority Status”

Bengali Senior Secondary School

AMN / New Delhi

The management of the Bengali Senior Secondary School on Shyam Nath Marg recently declared itself a “Linguistic Minority Institution” and started printing same on its stationary and school bags, allegedly to use this self-proclaimed status to give reservation to students and teaching staff.

Parents and guardians of students in the school approached Delhi Minority commission for action on this development which, they believe, will affect the standard and climate in this school. The basis of the complaint is that there is no such thing as “Linguistic Minority institution” because there are only six recognised religious minorities in the country and only their institutions get “minority status” from the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions. Moreover, the said school receives 95 percent grant from Delhi Govt.

DMC has issued notices to the principal of the school and Director of Education, Delhi Government, to explain if there is such a thing as a “Linguistic Minority Institution” and, if yes, did the said school secure it.
