Soren writes to Prime Minister Modi, requesting acceptance of the Sarna religious code for tribals.

Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday, requesting that the ‘Sarna’ religious code for tribals be recognised.

Soren claims that the state’s tribal population has dropped from 38% to 26% in the last eight decades.

“The concern about preserving tribals’ traditional religious existence… is undeniably serious.” Today, there is a necessity for Tribal/Sarna Religious Code so that this nature-loving tribal group can be assured in its identity.”

“At present, when the demand for Uniform Civil Code is being raised by some organisations, positive initiative on this demand of Tribal/Sarna community is absolutely necessary for their protection,” Soren wrote to Modi in a letter.

Previously, the Jharkhand Assembly unanimously approved a resolution to include ‘Sarna’ as a different religion in the census.
