Muslim Islamic NewsReservation in Education - Victory for Social Justice

A Step towards Full Implementation of Mandal Report

Government Thanked for Excluding Minority Institutions

Muslim Sub-Quota in Education Proposed

New Delhi, 22 December, 2005: Shri Syed Shahabuddin, President of the All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM), has issued the following Statement:

“The All India Muslim Majlis-e-Mushawarat (AIMMM) welcomes the passage of the Constitution (104th) Amendment Bill, 2005 by the Lok Sabha on 21 December, 2005 and hopefully expects its early passage by the Rajya Sabha and the assent of the President, followed by Central notification bringing it into force.

The AIMMM regards this amendment as a momentous victory for Social Justice as it paves the ground for reservation for the OBC, SC and ST in all educational institutions, government or private, aided or unaided. The Bill thus takes the Mandal process further towards full implementation of the Mandal Report. The AIMMM expects at least 2/3 of the Muslim population to benefit to some extent and welcomes the exclusion of Minority Educational Institutions and felicitates the Government on successfully marginalizing the communal elements. 

The exclusion has well-founded rationale. Firstly, there is no general reservation for the minorities yet in the existing schemes of reservation, although the Muslim community, which forms 2/3 of all religious minorities constitutes a Backward Class by any standard or criteria. Secondly, Minorities Educational Institutions (MEI) have been established under Article 30(1) of the Constitution and are meant to enable them to preserve their language and culture and to transmit their religious values to their next generation. Thirdly, the Muslim community despite its economic backwardness is now investing its sparse surplus in education and should be permitted to reap its benefit as fully as possible.

The AIMMM hopes that the reservation scheme under this amendment shall provide a separate sub-quota to Muslims, based on their population and their relative backwardness in education."
