Original_22jamia1

With National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions (NCMEI) yesterday clearing grant of minority status to the Jamia Millia Islamia  (a Central university),  Nawa-e-Haque, a Delhi-based NGO has written to its Vice-Chancellor seeking withdrawal of Jamia’s admission notice. The letter raises the following points:

An immediate meeting of Jamia Executive Council should be called upon so as to pass a resolution for reservation of at least 50% seats in all courses for Muslim students under provision of NCMEI.

The already issued Jamia Schools admission notice for academic session 2011-12 should immediately be withdrawn. It should be released after editing the reservation policy.

The compulsory reservation to Scheduled caste / tribe / Other Backward Classes (SC/ST/OBC) does not apply to minority institutions. Hence, it should be immediately withdrawn from the admission notices / prospectus / recruitment notices.

50% reservation for Muslims should also be ensured in Hostel admission, Students Union seats, Subject associations, recruitment, university sports teams and such other clubs / committees which gives representations of the university so that the Muslim Minorities get enough chance of expression.

University should adopt Sherwani as a dress code on special functions.
