If Hindus and Muslims want tobecome "real Indians", they must change their mindset, Press Council of India chairman Justice Markandey Katju has said.
In his latest blog posting, the former judge of the Supreme Court said, "Hindus will become real Indians when they stop regarding SCs as inferior, and marriages between non-SCs and SCs take place on a large scale."  

Katju said, "Muslims will become real Indians when marriages  between the so called 'upper caste' Muslims and 'lower castes' take place on a large scale, and when a large number of Muslims demand abolition of the unjust Muslim Personal Law which treats women as inferior.
"....So it must be abolished (just as the old Hindu law was abolished by the Hindu Marriages Act, 1955 and the Hindu Succession Act, 1956)."
