Solution :-

The word ‘marginalisation’ simply means exclusion from the mainstream.

Marginalisation of any community or a person can be because of many reasons like

  •  Speaking a different language
  • Following different customs
  •  Belonging to different religious group from the majority community etc. Marginalisation is linked to experiencing disadvantage, prejudice, poverty and powerlessness. It is a complex phenomenon which results into a low social status, not having equal access to education and other resources.
