Reservation is the right of Indian Muslims: PFI Chief

E-mail Print PDF
Share

Mangalore, March 12: Reservation is the most immediate need of Muslims and it is the best solution for the Muslim emancipation from their ghettos and shanty towns, said KM Shareef, National General Secretary, PFI. He was addressing an awareness programme organized by Popular Front of India as part of its ongoing two month long nationwide reservation campaign at Nehru Maidan, here on Friday, March 12.

More than seven thousand people participated in the programme. Hundreds of PFI workers had thronged to the venue from different parts of the undivided DK District.

Saying that the progress of country is tied with the progress of Muslims, Shareef opined that in today’s situation reservation is necessary for Muslims’ welfare.

“If government will not give Muslims their right, they will come out on the road to get it”, he warned.

Praising the Secular Constitution of India which assured equality to every citizen of the country, he pointed out the Indian Muslims are deprived of their constitutional rights.

Blaming the politicians and political parties for widespread corruption he said that the sovereignty of this country is being handed over to foreigners and enemies of this country by the politicians.

Reminding the report submitted by the Prime Minister’s High Level Committee (Justice Rajindar Sachchar Committee) in November 2006 which has identified the entire Muslim community as more backward than any Other Backward Communities, he said that enough discussion are going on about this report in closed doors but not in policy making places such as Assemblies and Parliaments.

E Aboobakar, National President, Social Democratic Party of India, in his address said that the political parties are deliberately sidelining the Muslim community without any hesitation.

Pointing out to the official facts and figures in the light of Sachar Committee report, that Muslim presence in the education and government service is far below their proportion of population he said, the gap between Muslims and other communities increases as the level of education increases.

“Unemployment rates among Muslims are highest”, he added.

It is in this context, that he said that the recommendations of the recently submitted Justice Ranganath Mishra Commission Report has become significant."If Sachchar report rightly diagnosed the issue, Mishra report contains the right prescription", E Aboobakar remarked.

The Mishra Commission has earmarked 15 per cent of government jobs and seats in educational institutions for minorities, out of which 10 per cent exclusively for the Muslim Community. As an alternate suggestion, it has earmarked 8.4 per cent out of existing OBC quota of 27 per cent for minorities, of which 6 per cent exclusively for Muslim OBCs.

Deekayya, Chief of Samaja Parivarthana Chalavali, Mudubidre said that the upper caste people succeeded in grabbing political power from the minorities and non-Brahmins through sowing the seed of division among Muslims and Daliths.

To eradicate social injustice, he said, political struggle is the only way ahead.

Another chief guest William Marties, President, Udyavara Church said, that the Christians and Dalits are ready to struggle for social justice to achieve social justice in this country together with Muslims.

In his presidential address, Elyas Muhammad, President, PFI Karnataka, made it clear that there is no legal problem with providing reservation to Muslims but government needs to make efforts sincerely in this regard.

Anwar Sadath, President, PFI, DK District, welcomed the guests and gave an introduction to the programme. Haider Neersal, President, PFI Puttur delivered vote of thanks.

What is our rep in the civil servic mimus 3%.What is our political rep? All we knows.So far any muslim leader in any political party interested safe guarding his chair only.

Some initiative needed that was done by PFI and we should appriciate it.It is good sign Burkha Clad Women@front in the meeting thereby we can have a some attention of Govt/Poltical heads.

In this context we should appriciate &support PFI's effort.

Becoz u people Never think about Other Poor Sections of the Community I think u should change ur mind and have a debate with the person who knows the problems Indian Muslims .

Dear Abdul Kareem and Ibrahim Jeppu

Allah gave you all and be grateful. Don’t you become blind to think about our social or Community. Make practice to appreciate people, when they make good job. PFI is struggling for up-lifting back word people in all communities. Do some thing for community or let them do. If possible, mingle with poor people those struggles just for their routine foods. And involve in social work. Study well Indian civil codes and rights.
A small example: First 4 seats are reserved for ladies in the bus. What ladies can do, if bus is crammed full and ladies seats are occupied by Gents ? Answer is, ladies have to ask for their seats with those who occupied their rights. It is absolutely not B E G G I N G.

PFI should more concentrate doing social work programes to improve the living standard of muslims than getting into politics.To get the reservations Muslims should include in the financially weaker section of the category.

Dear Br. Abdul Kareem, Riyadh,

Do you know Aligarh Muslim University's proposal for Bihar,West Bengal, Kerala, Hyderabad & Pune pending without reason. You need to study the Saachar Committee report before you comment. May be you have succeeded being educated. But case different in Murshidabad, West Bengal. You could see Muslims living in slum areas & where the tar road ends. They don’t basic facility like water, school, hospital, only thing you could find is a Police Station in Muslim Gallis. You must be aware how Muslims were living in Murshidabad during East India Company, why it’s changed now. Think!!!
Also there is lesson to learn for we Muslims from Gujjar Community in Rajasthan, they are only 5% & they fought for the 5% Reservation. They have succeeded.

Mr. Kareem, I appreciate that you are an educated person but you have to deffend on gulf country to satisfy your needs. You could not have fullfilled your need like now if you were in India, you have to agree with this. Majorities are doing fine back in India because the help from the govt. come to there door step but muslims get brutality and bad name in the name of terrorism to there door step. Even if you are well educated you will get easily terrorist trademark, this has become quite natural now. Thru reservation alone we can have our due rights from govt., so that our muslim brothers and sisters could easily find job or education opportunity.

Mr.Abdul Kareem, it’s not as easy as you wrote.

1. As you may know that, in our country people can not afford for food of one time properly. In this case, can someone think of Education? The situation is even worst in North India, where there is no clean water to drink in muslim locality.
One may give eg. of Dr.Kalam. But, when we talk about the full community, everyone will not have the same vision & determination like Dr.Kalam.

Think, If Dr.Kalam can become the most trusted Indian with least resource; if govt. gives little attention to Muslims, think how powerful will India be….

2. Another big point to be considered is that, the presence of 2% people in India frequently creating riots to harm Muslim community physically & economically.

3. There is equal responsibility of Muslims also to empower community by giving proper Zakath to deserving people.
4. Reservation is our constitutional RIGHTS & not ALMS. There is nothing to feel inferior or get ashamed of.

Dear Br. Mohammed Iqbal,

It’s easy for me to speak because some 20-25 yrs back I was one amongst those who were struggling for food, shelter etc. Alhamdulilah, if I reached this stage then that is only because of Almighty’s help, my hard work and my parents who gave importance to their children’s education rather then proper shelter and not because of any reservation or govt’s help. Now there are plenty of govt scholarships programmes which is not reaching to our students help to them avail those facilities and guide them to continue their studies so that in another 10 yrs they will stand their own. Don’t instill reservation into their mind. Let them study hard and achieve their goal.

BJP and its Sangh parwar are directly put ban on reservation for muslim and indirectly congress govt. helping them. These people need our help only during their elections, at that time they talk many things about minority development and muslims uplifting so on, but they do nothing about that after the election. Now its the time for all muslim brothers and sisters wake up and strugle for our due rights. Do not forget that we are approsimately 20% of entire population but 100% of the national development benefits taken away by 80%'s.

Brothers,

Understand that these so called reports just succeeded in creating a word called “Backwardness” for us. Please don't let this word create inferiority complex inside you... If you do independent survey, you will find that we have achieved a lot of things without govt help and trust me where ever govt has tried to help us, they have ruined us.
start your own struggle. Understand yourself, and look back at your history what you were? and why you were? ...what you are and why you are?.. you are reading this article or coments through internet just because of ur education & ur hardwork..this is a small example...
Adopt modern and Islamic education at any cost and see the change in coming 10-15 years. then you will not need to give this kinda speech or write any article for your rights, but they will come to your door and give you your share like Jews are getting from around the world.
They have adopted education and created tools to make them for themselves.
Rise from this mentality of reservation. Educate your childrens, bros, sis..that is the only solution to come out from the present situation.
