The Challenges of Cultural Diversity

Question

Why is special protection to religious or cultural minority required?

Answer

It is because irrespective of being a previleged minority in the sense of economic capital, these are poor in view of the cultural capital because of being their relatively in small number. Moreover, in democratic politics, it is always possible to convert a numerical majority into political power through elections. Hence, cultural minorities are politically vulnerable.
