reservation for muslim community

New Delhi: Breaking News! In a landmark judgement, the Supreme Court of India lifted the stay on Andhra Pradesh government's decision to provide 4 per cent reservation in jobs and education for Muslims.

 

 

 

The Supreme Court maintained that the four per cent quota would be given to only 14 per cent categories figuring in the 2007 Andhra Pradesh Reservation Act.

 

 

 

The apex court termed it as an interim order. The validity of the Act has been referred to a five-judge Constitution Bench. The matter will be taken up in August.

 

 

 

The Andhra Pradesh Government had on July 6, 2007 promulgated the ordinance for 4 per cent quota for Muslims in jobs and education, but the Andhra Pradesh High Court had termed the law as illegal and unconstitutional.

 

 

 

Union Law Minister M Veerappa Moily and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister K Rosaiah have welcomed the Supreme Court's verdict, while the BJP said that reservation based on religion was "disastrous" for Indian democracy.

One or the other day India loose it's entity

India can rename itself as ISLAMINDIA and stop spending half a lakh for defence.

In Bangalore, (notwithstanding IDGA maidan issue of hubli), a government land - a place which was used for Haj pilgrims has been converted into mosque. At srirangapatna, we could see, temples with its pillar containing hindu idols like naga etc converted into mosque. no one takes action.

However, the joke is when name of HINDUSTHAN was proposed, OIC (Organisation of Islamic Countries!!!) objected to it. they can use islam in name we must not use hindu in our name. 

Best thing is to remove Article 14 with all its exceptions - with or without legal sanction, standing meaningless. 

Already in the name of reservation for education, injustice is being done.

Yes. Best thing is to remove Article 14 with all its exceptions - with or without legal sanction, standing meaningless. Religions,caste, feelings raising day by day among Indians. The meaning of nationality may  be changed.

What about other minorities, like dalit christians, Budhist, Jains etc they got excluded, becoz of their negligible populations. Also, what will happen to Parsi communities, who are near to extinction, is there any plan for them. What line ruling community is following. message is clear, grow your population and make a vote bank or get converted to islam. Rulling community should also impose a tax on the majority, for the welfare of the minorities(means = Muslims). As said above, we should merge India with Pakistan, at least defence expenditure will come down. Well done Congress and Honourable Supreme Court Of India!

The HINDU  will  become the 'hindu'.  I mean to say Hindus will be calculated in minority in Hindusatan.

Adv.Aiyer VLV (Proprietor)     27 March 2010

i think we could make reservation without open categories. i.e. based on population/social standing/income make reservation for all categories so everyone will get reservation. of course, we will not have enough seats in all avenues for this. so it will require rotation year to year.  

present day SC judgements need scrutiny further. 

karnataka HC decision of bank interest income earned by apartment owner is covered under mutuality concept is upheld by SC. God alone must explain how mutuality extends to third party(bank). ......lous

Thus all it requires is everyone in family open a mutually beneficial association and keep money in bank to avoid taxation of interest on mutuality. 

These decisions are also similary ......... (better avoid contempt)

Dalit Muslim hope in Supreme Court ruling

ALL INDIA MUSLIM BACKWARD COMMUNITY WELFARE TRUST(AIMBC) MUMBAI MAHARASHTRA shan790@gmail.com

In a great development for a PIL lodged in Supreme Court by Akhil Maharastra Khatik Samaj (AMKS) for inclusion of

Dalit Muslims in Scheduled Caste category, the apex court recently ordered Union of India to file counter affidavit to the

writ petition. It is happening for the first time that the Union of India has responded to this petition. Shamsuddin Shaikh,

chairman of Akhil Maharashtra Khatik Samaj, has said that they are fighting for Dalit Muslim rights for more than a

decade. From 1935 to 1950 all Dalits irrespective of their religion were provided with reservations.

However, on Jan.26, 1950 when the constitution of India came into force an Order was passed by then President of

India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, limiting the reservation to only "Hindu Dalits", clearly prohibiting the provision of Article 341

which states that all SCs should be given reservation. The Presidential Order 1950 denies inclusion of Dalits of any

community other than Hindu in the SC category. The order says no person who professes a religion different from

Hinduism shall be deemed to be a member of the SC. This part of the order runs contrary to the provisions of Articles 14

(equality before the law), 15 (prohibition of discrimination on grounds of religion) and 25 (freedom to profess and practice

any religion) of the Constitution.

The situation clearly calls for a constitutional amendment to include Dalit Muslims and Dalit Christians. Sikhs and

Budhists were already included under SC.

Dalit Muslims deserve SC reservation as they are not only engaged in the same profession as "Hindu Dalit" but also

suffer the same discrimination as their "Dalit Hindu" counterpart. Mushtaq Ahmed, Supreme Court advocate in the above

case, said the Ranganath Mishra Commission has also recommended SC status for Dalit Muslims. There are 35 Dalit

Muslim castes among Muslims.The final hearing of apex court is on 29/3/2011.we hope dalit converts will get justice.
