Muslims must get job reservation across India: Mulayam

Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav has welcomed the Supreme Court decision regarding continuation of reservation to Muslims in Andhra Pradesh and said that it should be extended to the entire nation.

The SP supremo said that just because of their religion, an entire community can't be kept away from facilities which are meant for backwards all over India. He said that the backward Muslims should get similar reservation in education and employment.

Yadav said that other states should take a lead and follow the AP government's initiative. He said that the Apex court has held that it doesn't matter whether one is a Hindu or Muslim, rather backwardness is the sole criterion for reservation.

He said that it is imperative that the minorities get justice. The former UP Chief Minister also said that the Centre should make a constitutional provision to ensure that there is no more injustice with Muslims in this regard.
