Lashing out at the BRS government for throwing the promise of 12 percent reservation to Muslims into cold storage, the Muslim Joint Action Committee on Sunday gave 15 days ultimatum to KCR government urging it either to announce the implementation or else face state-wide demonstrations.
While addressing a round table conference on Sunday in Hyderabad city, the JAC Chairman and President Tahreek Muslim Shabban Muhammed Mushtaq Malik said, “The promise of providing 12 percent reservation to Muslims is no doubt is a political gimmick played by Chief Minister K.Chandrashekher Rao keeping an eye over the general elections. Although Muslim never ask for any such promise, the CM himself tries to appease the minorities and offer them the reservation chocolate.”
“The same thing was repeated in April 2017 ahead of the election,” he said, reminding that “A special assembly session was called to give approval to a resolution regarding 12 percent reservation to Muslims. It is against this background, the JAC is demanding the government to announce 12 percent reservations to Muslim minority in the state.”
Claiming that the CM’s attitude towards Muslim minorities is highly condemnable, Mushtaq Malik said, “Almost 10 Vice Chancellors were appointed in different universities in the state but to the dismay not a single one is from Muslim community.”
He held KCR responsible for the damage done to Muslim community due to no appointment of Muslims in crucial government departments in the state.
The round table conference passed a resolution demanding announcement of 12 percent reservation to Muslims in the proposed Budget session.
Apart from this, the conference of intellectuals also demanded the government to give approval to over two lakh loan applications filed in the Telangana State Minority Finance Corporation recently. It was also demanded to turn Wakf Board into Commissionerate with executive powers.
The round table conference also condemned the burning of holy Quran in Sweden and Denmark. It urged the government to summon the concerned ambassadors and urge them to render an apology with the Muslim world.
