The Supreme Court has asked the government to respond to a petition filed by six Uttar Pradesh residents that the government is discriminating against Hindus by providing religious minorities with welfare schemes worth thousands of crores.

A Bench led by Justice Rohinton F. Nariman issued the notice on the petition, which said welfare schemes cannot be based on religion. The plea, filed by Neeraj Shankar Saxena and five others, claimed that Hindus were discriminated against on the ground of religion, as schemes worth ?4700 crore were initiated in favour of only some religious minorities.
