"Shouldn't minorities and Dalits talk about Indian culture?" she tweeted. "Or are they ineligible?" The panel does not comprise any women either. On Monday, Union minister Prahlad Patel had informed Parliament in a written reply that a 16-member committee was looking into the origin and evolution of Indian culture dating back to around 12,000 years, according to PTI.
