    B)  Right against discrimination for admission to educational institutions on the grounds of religion, race or caste

    C)  Right of the minorities to establish and administer their educational institutions

    D)  All of these

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    [b] Article 29 states that, (i) Any citizen residing in the territory of India having a distinct language, script or culture of its own has the right to conserve it. (ii) No citizen be denied admission into any educational institution maintained by the state or receiving aid out of state funds on grounds of religion, race, caste, language or any of them. Article 30 provides that - (i) All minorities whether based on religion or languages shall have the right to establish and administer educational institutions of their choice. (ii) The state shall not discriminate in granting aid to educational institutions on the ground that it is under the management of a minority whether based on religion or language. However, the Supreme Court has ruled that a state government can make learning of its regional language compulsory even in linguistic minority schools in order to strengthen national integration and bridge the gap between different cultural segments in society.
