Carbonic acid is a mineral acid then why we considered it weak acid ??

When we talk about acids, It is a general case that organic acids are weak and mineral acids are strong. But it is not true for all case.
Carbonic acid is weak acid because it dissociates partially (that is, about 1 out of 100 molecules separates from its hydrogen ion). In carbonic acid solution, there is a large number of undissociated H2CO3 molecules, and just a few H+ and HCO3- ions.
