Aligarh: Hailing the decision of the central government to make separate 4.5 percent reservation quota for the OBC minorities within 27 percent OBC quota under Mandal Commission, the Aligarh based NGO Millat Bedari Muhim Committee (MBMC) said the 4.5 percent is not sufficient on the basis of the largest minority community, Muslims and it should be raised to 9 percent.
MBMC Aligarh held an emergency meeting on the issue on Friday. Presiding over the meeting Professor Razaullah Khan said a section of Indian citizenry was most backward and it was provided reservation, so that they may become equal and may contribute in nation building but followers of some religions were barred to avail it which was unethical and unjust. Today the mistake has been rectified to some extent.
Editor of the Aligarh Movement magazine Jasim Mohammd pointed out that the UPA government has earmarked separate 4.5 percent quota for OBC minorities on the basis of recommendations of Sachar Committee but it is not sufficient. “The UPA government should implement recommendations of Sachar Committee and Rangnath Mishra Commission fully,” he demanded.
Jasim Mohammad said that many Muslim castes were included in OBC but they were not getting fruits of reservation due to administration and social prejudices. Now the government should ensure that Muslim OBCs get their due in real terms.
The meeting passed resolutions demanding raising the quota from 4.5 percent to 9 percent, linking the Urdu language to employment and implementation of the recommendations of the Sachar Committee and Rangnath Mishra commission fully.
