Rehnuma is a multi-stakeholder programme anchored by National Foundation for India and Center for Social Justice, Ahmedabad, run in partnership with nine organizations in 11 states. The programme was envisioned towards an effective implementation of socio-economic rights for religious minorities using a rights framework through entitlement centers.
The entitlement centers work through a combination of awareness building, stakeholder consultations (with government officers and civil society members), capacity building of lawyers, community-based paralegals and members of other civil society organizations on this issue , facilitating the community to actually file their claims on their entitlements, legal aid, litigation work and advocacy.
In some cases where the entitlements are not realized within reasonable time, litigation is undertaken to establish the rights of the minority community claimants and duties of the state authorities. Thus, Rehnuma acts as a facilitation unit or a bridge between the minority community on the one hand, and the state as the duty bearer on the other.
