"The following persons are Hindus, Buddhists, Jainas or Sikhs by religion, as the case may be:" , No where in any act, it is mentioned that Buddhists, Jainas or Sikhs are Hindus , though that particular act is applicable for them .
    Also either prove or remove this sentence "the Buddhist, Jain and Sikh religion are offshoots of Hinduism." . This is kind of defamation against a religion be careful.
