My response below are in 'red'. Well why does it not do for the other religions? Let the Religious bodies themselves decide as to the administration.

Today, if a Hindu governing body representing all Hindu sects files a case against the government, the HRCE will go away. The problem is such a single organization does not exist.

I am a brahmin in a traditional mode in my house and in a societal mode outside. I still wear panchakachams. It is good that you wear your jathi symbol proudly. That is your prerogatives.
But what my argument was that if a Brahmin chooses to wear a pair of pants, he is no less a Brahmin than you. Languages are there for a purpose. You can not brow beat people in to learning a language.
But I am finding everywhere a revival of interest in Sanskrit though.Majority vs Minorities The majority and the minority bring forth change in policy in a democratic society.
