As long as religious restriction continues on Article 341 of the Constitution of India, the dalit Christians and dalit Muslims will remain marginalised from the national mainstream. They have to bear the brunt of fascist forces sometimes in Gujarat and sometimes in Orissa because they have least representation in government and administration.

These views were expressed by national president of All India Dalit-Muslim Morcha Mohd Salahuddin while speaking at a seminar on the topic - 'The present socio-economic condition of dalit Christians and Muslims given religious restriction on Article 341 of the Constitution'organised here on Sunday.
