Performance of Muslim candidates disappointing as usual in UPSC

New Delhi: Results of civil services examination conducted by UPSC in 2012 were declalred on 3 May according to which 998 candidates made it to the panel of successful candidates. But the overall performance of Muslim candidates, as usual, was disappointing seeing that out of 998 successful candidates only 31 found a place in this list, which is about the usual three percent only of the total.
 
In Pictutre some of the Muslim achievers in UPSC exam are Wasim Akram(Uttar Pradesh), Aneesh C (Kerala), Mazid Khan (Uttrakhand),Shakeel Ahmed Ansari(Maharashtra), ,Naveed Trumboo(Kashmir),Yasser Arafat F.A.(Tamilnadu) and Moona Yasmin (UP)

This is not for the first time that Muslims performance is so poor in these exams. For the past so many years, the total number of successful Muslim candidates has been around 30 out of 800 to 1000. This year their result is even worse – out of a total of 998, only 31 have found a place in this list. And this is despite the fact that coaching for civil services is provided to prospective Muslim candidates by many government and Muslim institutions like Jamia Millia Islamia, Hamdard Study Centre, Zakat Foundation of India and others. Realists may explain away poor performance of Muslim candidates by their specious argument that poor performance of Muslim candidates is obviously because of their incompetence. But this also creates doubt, as expressed by some ‘thoughtess’ Muslims, that this is probably in accordance with government’s hidden policy of not empowering or giving Muslims their due share in government machinery beyond a certain limit, because civil services candidates of today will become policy makers, decision makers and executors of tomorrow. The fact is that though ruling parties and ministers frame policies and rule the country, the real rulers are the civil servants and bureaucrats who can block and frustrate sincere intentions and policies of governments. This is proved by the fact that many schemes for the welfare and development of Muslim are either put in the cold storage or implemented half-heartedly by the beauracrates. If too many Muslims become bureaucrats, they may upset communal elements’ grand plan of future.

In any case, it is encouraging to find that Kashmir’s young generation has performed rather well in this all-India examination and out of 11 who passed, three are girls. Fourteen students coached by Jamia Millia Islamia and seven out of those coached by Zakat Foundation of India also succeeded in the examination this year.
