Imposition of Common Admission Test on Minority Institutions Militates Against Minority Rights
Demands Exemption for Minority Institutions in Context of Supreme Court Judgement

New Delhi, 16 December, 2003: Shri Syed Shahabuddin, President of the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM), has issued the following Statement:

"The AIMMM protests against the official scheme of Common Admission Tests for all professional degree and post-graduate courses applicable to all central and deemed universities, as an attack on their autonomy and an unjustifiable extension of the authority of the statutory bodies like the UGC, the IMC, the AICTE or the CBSE.

In particular, the AIMMM deplores the imposition of the scheme on the Aligarh Muslim University, the Jamia Millia Islamia and the Jamia Hamdard which have, as minority educational institutions, traditionally catered to a largely, but not exclusively, Muslim catchment area. 

This imposition is a violation of the recent Supreme Court judgement which upholds the constitutionality of preferential admission of minority candidates in minority institutions through merit-based admission tests conducted by the institutions themselves.

The AIMMM apprehends that the Common Admission Test will cut down the number of Muslim students entering the professional streams and thus cause a setback to their educational and economic advancement and, therefore, sees the imposition as a transparent device to further deprive the already deprived Muslim community from professional education.

The AIMMM calls upon all minority communities to protest against the deliberate dilution of their right to establish educational institutions and to administer them under Article 30 of the Constitution, including admission of students and appointment of teachers, and, therefore, to demand the exemption of minority institutions from the Scheme of Common Admission Tests.
