This is one of the weirdest petitions one could come across. Religious Minority status is given to people who follow one religion, but jains in india follow up with hinduism and celebrate / practise all hindu rituals. The stand that minority status will grant them protection to practise religion which has aped brahamanical cores in a majority hindu region is a blatant lie.

SIKHS cremate their dead. That does not make them Hindus. Jain Temple Trustees keep Hindu Pujaries in temples because they do not get them in Jains due to low salaries offered.
If knowledgable Jains do not visit the Jain Temples and supervise observance of the correct Jain rituals, the Hindu pujaries get a free hand to introduce Hindu rituals in Jain Temples.

In Keshariyaji Jain Temple of Rajasthan, the Hindu Pujaries have built temples of Hindu Gods inside the Jain Complex with Govt.support and claimed ownership rights of the same. Unless the Jains Unite and support this petition, Jains will cease to exist after sometime and all their temples and properties will be taken over by the majority community Government.

Its not correct.........Jains do not follow the festivals of Hinduism. There is perfect reason behind every festival according to Jainism to celebrate that particular festival....Hadappa Sanskrit also proved that Jainism is the oldest religion in the World....

@piyush..What rubbish are you talking ..Hinduism which was committing serious grave offenses like sati ,female infanticide,dowry ,caste system ,animal sacrifices ,animal sacrifcies in temples which is also prevalent now ..basically all those activities because of which the west makes fun of India ..it was Jains who bought the concept of non violence which was a major pillar for getting independence..gandhi himself was influnced with the non violence concept from jainism ..gandhi was a meat...

I being a Jain never went to a Hindu temple. Nor do I celebrate Diwali like Hindus do. So your comment is absolutely rubbish and baseless

Dear Piyush, i agree with you that we jains also celebrate many hindu festivals like diwali and raksha bandhan, etc. But, my friend if you dig down deep, you will get to know that we jains have different reasons to celebrate these festivals...and these reasons are nowhere related to those in Hinduism. I do not hate any religion as such, but please don't be obsessed with one belief. Kindly respect religious sentiments of all groups, after all Jainism is no enemy to Hinduism.

would have loved if jainism took on hinduism but alas the trader community which has appropriated a social movement has taken on all the discrimination to it's core be it in terms of gender or caste.. anyway going back to the core debate of seeking minority status which is accorded to a minority population practicing a distinct religion then how much could we differentiate from the temples and rituals of the Hindu's is a very very debatable question ..

piyush I think you don;t know Jains are never hindus & it has been held by Supreme court also. hence no question of treating like hindus

piyush weirdest thing is not asking for minority status for jains ,weirdest thing is indian govt giving minority status to the largest population of one community of india.

जैन धर्मावलम्बी व जैन समाज जब देश की कुल जनसँख्या का २% से भी कम है ,उनके भगवन जो की तीर्थंकर कहलाते है वर्मन में २४ है उनके सिधांत मूल रूप से ही अन्य धर्मावलम्बियों से अलग है ,असमान है तो जैन धमव्लम्बिओ को अल्पसंख्यक मानने में सर्कार को क्या दिकत आ रही है ,वइसे देखा जाये तो इस्लाम धर्म को मानने वाले देश में दुसरे नंबर पर आते है ,उनको अल्प संख्यक से हटा कर अन्य धर्म जो संख्या में कम है उनको इन्क्लूड करना चाहिए.|इसके आलावा भी कई और पॉइंट है जो सब जैन धर्म को अल्प संख्यक दर्ज देता है.

Govt. Headed by Member Of Minority, under Patronage of Chairperson UPA( herself a Member of Minority) and having a Minority affairs Minister From a (Major) Minority Community should not Supress the smaller Religious Minorities and should give them their rightful due.

Jain should not be taken for granted...when this religion is contributing so much for the economy and country why they are ignored - when their is question of giving something by the government. We are not saying "ek baar hume minority declare karo and hamari progress dekho - we want this because we are now cornered for government administration work - where we can contribute far better for the country. Major portion of taxation, donation, social work, simplicity has been shown by this...

we jains do nt see ourselves as underprivelliged........n dats obviously nt the reason fr us to be labeled a minority....bt the issue here is the recent incident at girnarji , gujrat......nobdy paid heed to the issue nd justice is far away from sight......its important dat the govt must see dat a JAIN COMMUNITY also exists in india........nd it is a community which does nt beg for its rights on the roads bt surely wants dem....nd is ADAMANT!
