    Plea for minority status to non-Muslims in J&K: SC grants time to Centre

    Jammu and Kashmir
    New Delhi: The Supreme Court today gave a final opportunity to the Centre and asked it to take a decision within three months on a plea to grant minority status to non-Muslims in the state of Jammu and Kashmir.

    A bench comprising Chief Justice J S Khehar and Justices AK Goel and D Y Chandrachud considered the submission of the central government that it needed more time to hold consultations with the state government and other stakeholders, if any.

    The bench was hearing a PIL filed by Jammu-based lawyer Ankur Sharma that in a Muslim majority state like Jammu and Kashmir, non-Muslims should have been granted minority status to avail benefits of various governmental schemes.
