Reservations can ensure the development of the Muslims in the fields of Education and Employment and also can eradicate poverty.

The delegation also congratulated Mr. Amer Ali Khan, News Editor of Siasat Urdu Daily for leading this campaign.
Continuing his speech, Mr. Zahid Ali Khan told the delegation that for the success of any movement struggle is essential. He pointed out that with passion and struggle if people become emotional, it might create hindrances in the movement. He further told that this campaign is in progress in a very constructive way. He apprised the delegation the importance of the recommendations of BCs Commission and said that except BCs commission no other Governmental organization is authorized to recommend reservations. Court does not accept recommendations of any other organization. He told that the Muslims deserve reservations on the basis of their educational and economic backwardness. To assess the backwardness of Muslims, BCs Commission is the only competent authority. He advised the delegation to intensify this campaign and requested it to present memoranda in a very cordial manner. He also mentioned that the majority of the Muslims depend on daily wages. The percentage of graduates among the Muslims is less than the depressed classes. The educated Muslim youths are perturbed with the lack of employments. They are getting backward day by day.
