Re: [Jainsamachar] Census-2011 and Jains
- Thanks Chetan for the effort.Dear AllWhile I fully agree that we should mention our religion as Jain, I totally disagree with all of us having our surname as Jain and also stating a language which we don't even understand leave alone use.Let us be proud of our religion and not be aggressive / Chavunistic about it. What is the difference then between us and others?RegardsKishor Darda

Jai Jinendra ,
All of you must be aware of upcoming second round of census-2011 from 9th Feb to collect religion/language/caste and other related information. For this purpose, got the write up/document from Muni Shri to make Jain people aware to provide correct information.
Please have a look at docs uploaded on google docs - In Hindi In English
In short, we have to put number '6' for question#7 in census form for religion. Six stands for Jainism. Also put Prakrit/Sanskrit/Apbransha in languages other than monther tongue in column(question#11)
Request all of you to take print and paste in your nearby temple/sthanak etc and promote on web among jain peoples.
