Minorities Vs. Majorities

Every province or country has inequality toward the citizens that belong to them. For sure, they must obtain an agreement to fully lead a country to success. Canada is a large country that is represented by two major communities: the English Canadians and the French Canadians. However, we cannot ignore the fact that there is a notable minority of French Canadians that are known to be mainly found in Quebec. On the other hand, we can notice that India has points in common with Canada such as having several different communities. In India, Hindus and Muslims are the two main communities present. The Indian government claims that these two “have got to be reconciled and united and made to feel that their interests are common and they are marching together for a common goal” (Muhammed Ali Jinnah: Founder of Pakistan, 227). Even though the Hindus represent the majority in India compared to Muslims, the Indian government is trying to make the two communities feel united and equal. The case is similar in Canada; the actual government tends to try to please every citizen no matter what community they belong to. A country needs to be united if they want to be well managed.
