Muslims complain at neglect of minority welfare schemes in Nanded

By TCN News,

Nanded (Maharashtra): A delegation of Muslim intellectuals associated with different groups registered their protest before the district administration for not holding any program on 20th Nov. which is officially observed as ‘Minority Welfare Day’ in the state. The district administration ignored it despite clear direction from the state government to observe the day.

The delegation also complained against officials for not showing interest in implementation of schemes meant for minority welfare including Prime Minister’s 15-point program. They said that the benefit of the schemes is not reaching the needy section due to discrimination by concerned officials.

In a memorandum submitted to the Regional Development Commissioner the delegation demanded removal of hard conditions for availing minority scholarship and action against bank officials who discriminate minority students in opening their bank accounts.

Their other demands included increase in the number of scholarships for minority students, assurance of loan to minority, construction of Urdu Ghar and girl hostel, proper implementation of Sarva Siksha Abhiyan and Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya in Muslim area.

They also urged the official to form minority welfare committee to monitor the schemes and program run by state and central government.

The delegation comprising members of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Students Islamic Organization of India and Movement for Peace & Justice included Dr MA Baser, Dr Zaki, Abdul Jalil, Zahur Ahmed, Ameer Hamza and Abdul Hakeem. The delegation will send copy of the memorandum to the chief minister of Maharashtra also.
