Demand for 12% reservation for Muslims

Former Member of Parliament (MP) Mohammad Shahabuddin on Sunday urged the Centre to provide 12% reservation for Muslims in all government jobs in the country.

Shahabuddin, who heads the Joint Committee of Muslim Organisations for Development, said that a huge convention would be held at Delhi on February 1 where hundreds of organisation members would formally ask the Union government to provide reservation for the minority.

He said that the Sachchar committee recommendations and the Justice Ranganath Mishra commission reports should be immediately implemented. The former MP said that there is urgent need for the Centre to show its commitment to its promises regarding the report.

Shahabuddin said that the socio-economic condition of the Muslims has been extensively documented in the Sachar panel report while Justice Ranganath Mishra committee report deals with the problems and their possible solutions.
