Abstract

In this book, we have discussed the economic, social and political status of minorities in India (religious minorities, such as Muslims; and disadvantaged social groups, such as SCs, STs and OBCs), and ethnic minorities, such as the Uygur in Xinjiang and the Tibetans in Tibet and elsewhere, in China. We have examined poverty, income and other inequalities and the social exclusion of minorities vis-à-vis the majority population (Hindus in India and the Han in China).1 Poverty and inequalities were examined between and within minority groups. We found that minorities are poorer than the majority populations, both absolutely and relatively speaking.
