Sikhs not minority in Punjab, SC stays HC order

New Delhi: The Supreme Court has stayed a Punjab High Court order that declared Sikhs are not a minority in Punjab.
The Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee had challenged the High Court order.
The High Court had last year dismissed a state government notification declaring Sikhs a minority in Punjab.
The notification had sought 50 per cent reservation for Sikh students in Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee-run educational institutions.
The Punjab government has welcomed the Supreme Court order.
