Hyderabad: Mr. Amer Ali Khan, News Editor of Siasat Urdu Daily told that the spark of Muslim reservation turned into a big flame with the unity of the Muslims. If any attempt is made to suppress this movement, it will intensify further. For the backwardness of the Muslim, representatives of the Muslims and Muslim officials are responsible who did not submit appropriate proposals to the Govt. for the development of Muslims. He told this while addressing a large all party meeting held at Bodhan bus stand yesterday organized by Minorities sub-plan and 12% reservation action committee.
Mr. Amer Ali Khan further told that the campaign for 12% reservation for Muslims is concern with the entire Muslim community. Siasat Urdu Daily did not compromise in raising Muslim issues and it will not do so in the future. The campaign launched by Siasat Urdu Daily has now become a mass public movement with the help of Muslim organizations and all the political and religious institutions. This campaign is gaining movement in all the districts of Telangana State. Ladies are also participating in it actively. It takes time for any movement to intensify but it doesn’t take any time to transform it into a revolution. At present, Ms. Kavitha, TRS MP of Nizamabad is making a promise to represent this matter to the Central Govt. He told Ms. Kavitha to fulfill the promise made by TRS by constituting BCs Commission. The promise for offering 12% reservation for Muslims was not made by the Muslims but it was TRS which made this promise. Since TRS has assumed power, it is its responsibility to provide 12% reservation to Muslims and then refer the matter to Central Govt. It is a fact that BJP is the ruling party in the Center and Muslims have no hope with PM Modi. He also told that the campaign for 12% reservation for Muslim started initially in the nooks and corners and reached the portals of the Govt. it has now organized hunger strike. In the past, many movements were stopped. If this movement is also stopped, it would turn into a revolution. So far, youths have not been linked to this movement. This movement is being run in a democratic way. If any attempt is made to suppress it, it would have serious consequences for which Govt. would be responsible.
