Muslim Islamic News"Sachar report is old wine in new bottle" says former National Commission for Minorities Chairman

Press Release

The Milli Gazette

The Sachar exercise is nothing unprecedented. Its much-publicized report neither unearths any hitherto unknown facts nor recommends any novel measures says Tahir Mahmood, former Chairman of the National Minorities Commission. That the Muslims of India are educationally backward, economically lagging behind the other communities and relatively too much under-represented in government employment are well known ground realities bourn out by several successive reports replete with authentic data prepared and submitted by the Minorities Commission, Planning Commissions Sub-Groups on Minorities and the celebrated Gopal Singh Panel of 1980s, Professor Mahmood told the media. The real problem in his opinion has been of societal insensitivity and official apathy in this regard. If the custodians of State authority do not yet take any meaningful steps to remedy the situation, this new superfluous exercise will also remain meaningless, adds Dr Mahmood.

Commission for Religious & Linguistic Minorities; Amity's Ambassador for
Interfaith Dialogue; Founder-Chairman, Amity University's Institute of
Advanced Legal Studies & School of Religion and Law; New Delhi, India
