G Sudhir Commission of Enquiry on Socio-Economic and Educational Conditions of Muslims held a meeting with various experts and scholars of the country and sought their views regarding causes of Muslim backwardness and suggestions to eliminate backwardness. Experts belonging to various regions attended the meeting and proposed concrete measures to eliminate Muslim backwardness in Telangana.
Two separate sessions were held. In the first session papers were presented by experts regarding Muslim backwardness while in the second session the Commission of Enquiry presented its primary report.
Deputy Chief Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali also attended the meeting and told that the government is sincere in providing 12% reservations to Muslims and as the first step it has constituted Commission of Enquiry. After receiving the report by the Commission government will finalise the strategy to provide reservation. He asserted that separate BC Commission will be formed after the report of Commission of Enquiry is submitted.
The experts admitted that social development is impossible as long as Muslims do not get their due position in every field. They recommended equal rights to Muslims in every field. They also pointed out that only one percent Muslims are benefiting from the developmental schemes of the government. The situation needs to be changed.
In the second phase the Commission of Enquiry plans to issue a 10-page questionnaire to conduct comparative study of development among Muslims and other communities.
