Move away from minority-majority mindset: Minister

110 Days ago

New Delhi, March 13 (IANS) Indians have to move away from the mindset of minority or majority to ensure an inclusive society, union Minister of State for New and Renewable Energy Piyush Goyal said on Sunday.

"I believe that the idea of inclusive society is to move away with the mindset of majority or minority. Each one of us is in a majority at one place and a minority at other," he said at a Global Leadership Forum held by the Art of Living Foundation here.

The minister said the focus on minority issues had affected overall development of the country.

"It's not about religious or political minority. In fact, the focus on political and religious minorities has caused more damage to society. It has created a debil psychology... and caused distress and distrust across the world, which we need to change and improve by focusing on people and sections of society which are underprivileged."

Goyal said religion was a very personal issue and had nothing to do with society. (IANS)
