The Delhi High Court today issued notice in Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay's petition seeking a direction to frame guidelines for the identification of the term "minority" at the state level.

The petition seeks to define "minority" at the state level to ensure that only those religious and linguistic groups which are socially economically and politically non-dominant and numerically very inferior enjoy rights and protections guaranteed under Articles 29 and 30 of the Constitution of India.
