Hyderabad: The campaign started by Siasat Urdu Daily to exert pressure on the Govt. to provide 12% reservations to Muslims is gathering momentum in the city of Hyderabad and also in Telangana Districts. Mr. Mohammed Ismail-ur-Rab Ansari, President of Telangana Urdu Forum and Mazher Educational Society led a delegation of women and met Mr. Rahul Buja, IAS, Collector of Hyderabad District and presented a written representation demanding 12% reservation for Muslims in the fields of educational and employment. He mentioned that TRS had promised in its election manifesto that it would provide 12% reservation to Muslim in education and employment. Welcoming this gesture, the Muslims voted TRS in large numbers which resulted in assuming power in Telangana. TRS has completed 15 months of its rule. CM of Telangana State has promised to create Govt. jobs. If 12% reservation is not provided to the Muslims, they would lose many posts. The students will also lose many seats in professional and other colleges.
Mr. Ansari thanked Mr. Zahid Ali Khan, Editor of Siasat Urdu Daily and said that the movement he had started is the need of the hour. He apprised of the campaign started by Siasat Urdu Daily to the Collector of Hyderabad. He promised that as Collector of Hyderabad District he would fulfill his responsibilities. He told that 12% reservations is the right of the Muslim. Mr. KCR has promised that he would stick to his promise for which the formation of BCs Commission is required. There is a precedent during the Congress regime. If reservations are provided without the report of BCs Commission, it would be useless. Mr. Ansari strongly stressed the need for the formation of BCs Commission without any further delay. He mentioned that it is an acclaimed fact that he Muslims are backwards in all the fields of life. The reports of Sachar Committee, Murlidhar Commission and Abu Saleh are a testimony to this fact. Muslims are more backward than the other depressed communities. It is the constitutional right of the Muslims to progress along with their compatriots.
