The High Court in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh has suspended a ruling which said Muslims could no longer be treated as a religious minority.
Groups classified as minorities enjoy various privileges.
On Thursday one of the High Court judges ruled that census figures showed that Muslims were no longer a minority in Uttar Pradesh.
The state government appealed. Now two other High Court judges have said the judgement should not be implemented.
Muslims constitute about 18.5% of the population of Uttar Pradesh.
