Gujarat tops states in number of Muslim policemen
Btw, Why TOI made such RTI ?? â€©Gujjus know that there's no discrimination from govt here.Not in business. And muslim farmers got a lot of benifit from "Krushi Melas" here held by govt.
Interesting. I wonder if the ratio was the same in 2001. Probably not given police's apathy and sometimes support to the rioters.
NEW DELHI: Gujarat, which faced one of the worst anti-Muslim riots in the country barely 10 years ago, has emerged as the state with the largest number of Muslim cops posted in police stations, beating states with a higher proportion of the community in their population.
The data, shared by the home ministry in response to an RTI query filed by TOI, shows that 10.6% of Gujarat's cops posted in police stations are Muslims. This is higher than the proportion of Muslims in the state's population, which is 9.1% (2001 census).
The state has 5,021 cops from the community out of a total of 47,424 in its 501 police stations. On an average, Gujarat has 10 Muslim cops per police station â€” higher than any other state which shared data with the Centre.
The trend comes to light at a time when most states have failed to implement a key recommendation of the Sachar Committee report, suggesting that more Muslim cops be in police stations to build confidence among the community.
Assam and Kerala, home to a much larger chunk of Muslims, have a higher percentage of the community in their police forces. But Gujarat has higher number of Muslim cops. Along with Odisha, it is the only state where the percentage of Muslims in the police force is higher than in the general population.
The list includes 17 states and six Union Territories (UTs) and leaves out states such as Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh (where Muslim population is 10% or more), which did not share data with the home ministry despite several reminders.
Gujarat has 5,021 Muslim police personnel in its 501 police stations compared to 2,210 Muslim cops in 451 police stations in Kerala, 2,048 in 525 police stations in West Bengal, 930 in 773 police stations in Rajasthan and 616 in 417 police stations in Jharkhand.
Absence of data from 11 states and one UT (Puducherry) may spare them from being scrutinized at this juncture by the Centre but not sharing figures of Muslim cops may itself raise a question mark over these states' commitment to implement the Sachar committee recommendations.
TOI had sought information under the transparency law in the context of the home ministry's missive to states reminding them about implementing Sachar panel's recommendations on posting a minimum of one Muslim inspector or sub-inspector in police stations which catered to a sizeable number of the minority community. This, the committee said, should be done "not eliminate discrimination but as an initiative to build confidence".
The ministry also sought details of action taken by the states in this regard on a half-yearly basis.
The Sachar committee, constituted on March 9, 2005 under the chairmanship of Justice Rajinder Sachar to prepare a comprehensive report on the social, economic and educational status of Muslims in India, had submitted its findings in November 2006.

Gujarat tops states in number of Muslim policemen - The Times of India on Mobile
â€¨â€¨â€©So, is this your best effort to creticize Gujarat ?? Police was helpless in most of the parts.Only Paramillitary forces can stop such things,not police no matter from which religion you belong.
Quite a surprise, given the image popularised of Modi!
I think there is another similar thread on going.

Should be merged here.....
Communal Congress Party has been talking about `Garibi Hatao` since the days of Indira Gandhi and support to minorities - reality is if Garib become well-off and Muslims come out of their (relative) backwardness then who will vote this corrupt party ? Hope in next General Elections, foolish mango man of India will give chance to BJP. Not saying BJP is all perfect but 50+ years of Congress is enough and other, more competent people, must be given a chance to prove their mettle for the good of this country. Note that Gujarat is the only state that has implemented Sachar Committee recommendationsn - few other states have not even given the relevant data to GOI.
It is time to disregard these populist slogan churned up which are in actuality meaningless.
This Aam Admi nonsense has only seen the deprivation of the so called Aaam Admni and instead has given most of the sops to the corporates and business lobbies.
It is such a farce that the son in law of the Conress and UPA Supremo lampooned this silly and stupid and meaningless slogan by stating that Indian are Mango People and that India was a Banana Republic.
Indeed, he was right!
The way we are exposing scams a day, we have been taken for a ride and are mango people being fooled by a banana republic!
It is not that the Muslims alone are deprived. a vast majority of Indians, irrespective of religion, caste or community are deprived.
It is time to raise the Indians from illiteracy, infirmities of health and sanitation and be given good and professionally oriented education.
The time for hollow war cries and slogan is over.
Indians have realised how they are being fooled and the fat cats are getting richer through all means available, legal or illegal.
The effectiveness of the police force to maintain law and order is more important than simply the number of cops the government has on it's roster, regardless of their religion.
So Namo should have such track record to wash the so called "Stain" of 2002.
Religion is personal only meritocracy should prime in all jobs, no reservations,quotas as it brings in inefficiency.
why do these idiot reporters and politicians view everything thru religion
what relevance does it have with the duty they perform??
I think its easier to hide one own failure under the garb of racism,discrimination rather work hard to achieve one's target.
Its a fact that if someone is determined anything is possible.
It would be insane to think that our sickulars, media and other jholawalas, JNU types etc will mend their minds.
Cops who where on duty in 2001 should be lined up and shot dead..............
The issue here is Sachar Committee recommendations which only Gujarat has carried out, while other states including states like West Bengal and Assam that have large percentage of Muslims have not.
Please stop posting this kind of communal threads supporting modi
