Muslim Candidates Qualify Civil Services
By Tanveer Saiyed

A total of 15 Muslim candidates have made it to the civil services this year. Nine out of these 15 candidates had prepared at the Hamdard Study Circle (HSC). Three Hindu candidates from backward classes and a Christian candidate have also qualified civil exams from HSC this year which raises the total tally of HSC succesful candidates to 13.

Last year, only 12 Muslim candidates from all over India managed to pass these exams. Out of them, nine candidates were from the HSC coaching centre alone. 

There was only one non-Muslim candidate out of total ten who qualified from HSC.

Like last year, this year too there is no Muslim among the top 20 candidates. While more than once in the past, Muslim candidates have also been the first positioner. This time, first Muslim candidate Mr. Shabahat Azim of UP is at the 25th number in the merit list of total 411 successful candidates. While Ghulam Ansari of Bihar and Zubair Riyaz of J&K have secured 70th and 97th position respectively.

According to the list published by the UPSC out of 411 candidates 127 belong to OBCs 63 to SCs and 30 belong to STs. In other words out of 411 candidates, 220 belong to backward castes and the rest 191 belong to general category including 15 Muslims.

Last year a total of 470 candidates were declared successful. Though there is an addition of three in the number of Muslim candidates this year, but this number too is very poor when compared to Muslim population in the country.

It is said that no partiality is practised with anyone on religious grounds. This means that Muslim candidates are less competent, less laborious and poor performer than students of other communities. During 1984 to 1999, the highest ratio of 26 Muslim candidates was in 1996, it went down to 25 in 1990, 24 in 1995 and 22- Muslim candidates qualified in 1992 and 1994. But the figure of 15 this year and 12 last year shows that the success trend of Muslim candidates has gone down.
