IUML demands quota for Muslims in jobs
Coimbatore: Reiterating its demand for proportionate
for Muslim community in government jobs, the Tamil Nadu unit of Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) on Jan 15 said a delegation would soon meet the state Governor in this regard.
Despite having many eligible candidates, the Muslim community was not properly represented in the government jobs, particularly in education field, IUML state president Prof Khader Moideen told presspersons here today.
The delegation would put forward its demand through a memorandum to Governor Surjit Singh Barnala, Moideen said and appealed that at least two vice-chancellors' posts should be reserved for Muslim community.
Since the members of the community, with 10 per cent of total population, were not proportionately accommodated in the government jobs, many eligible and educated youths were forced to engage in petty business for livelihood and some were discontinuing their studies, he said.
Commenting on law and order situation, Moideen said that Tamil Nadu police, once a role model to other states, of late had lost its steam and "criminals are becoming more intelligent than police machinery."
When asked about the Sankaracharya's case, he said that though his party did not want to comment on the topic, the case, a criminal one in nature, was moving "legally".
However, the BJP, which had no other issues, was attempting to politicise the issue, as was evident from the remarks of the party leaders, including its national president, L K Advani, Moideen alleged.«
