    Jamiat sets two-month deadline for Muslim quota - The Times of India
    NEW DELHI: Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, one of the country's leading Islamic organizations, has set a two-month deadline for the UPA government to enact a law on reservation for Muslims in government jobs in proportion to their population.

    It also asked the government on Tuesday to pass the anti-communal violence law besides release of innocent Muslim youth arrested on false charges of involvement in terrorist activities. It said if its demands were not met, it would launch nationwide protests.

    Taking on UPA chairperson and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, Jamiat general secretary Maulana Mahmood Madani said, "You can't remain competent and eligible to the legacy of the great family if injustices in the states run by your party are not stopped, and communal violence law is not enacted during the UPA regime."

    He claimed Muslims were not "bonded labour" of any particular party and urged the government to at least introduce the communal violence bill in Congress-ruled states within a year.

    The Jamiat leader said all political parties had fooled the minorities and other weaker sections including Muslims, OBCs and tribals. Madani also urged the BJP to clarify its stand on Muslims. "If it clarifies its stand, the country's destiny will definitely change," he said referring to the recent claim of BJP leader L K Advani that the attitude of Muslims towards the party was changing.

    He also took on Mulayam Singh Yadav and said if the Samajwadi Party chief failed to fulfill his commitment of providing 18% reservation to Muslims, releasing Muslim youth arrested on false charges and allowing reconstruction and repair of mosques in Uttar Pradesh, his dream of becoming prime minister would remain unfulfilled.

    Around 12,000 protesters courted arrest near Ram Manohar Lohia hospital in the capital, and Jamiat leaders submitted a memorandum of demands to the prime minister's office.

    "Our working committee will meet next month. We will give the government a couple of months to act. If it fails, there will be nation-wide protest including massive jail bharo movement," Madani said.

    Are they holding veiled threats of "direct action"?

    It will not be interesting times ahead but will be touch times for the future governments. Government should allocate quotes if & only if these people abide to 2 child policy( it might be for any religion for that matter).

    I am now getting convinced that all are reading Tarot Cards.

    NDA seems to returning with Modi at the helm!

    So, make hay while the sun shines!

    Personally, I think this quota system has ruined the spine of India to DIY and instead move around moping with the beggars' bowl!

    Further, it also shows that these quota and populist freebies are bogus and crooked. I believe, if the news is to be believed, the CAG has exposed that the susbsidy to the farmers have gone to the wrong people and there has been a huge pilferage and incorrect procedures. .

    Upper caste dirty politics. Veiled attempt to maintain upper caste hegemony. Very similar to 'reservations based on income' obfuscation tactic.

    Gujjar reservation issue was created by upper caste party BJP (? intentionally) by promising reservations during election campaign. Typical Brahminical kuteel neeti.
    Jaats in Haryana are land owning dominant caste. They are behaving as a dominant caste should behave according to holy caste system.

    Few relevant points from some random page I found on internet.
    Already many backward Muslims get reservations, not as separate religious category but as part of OBC category. Upper caste Muslims are well off. Obviously in guise of religion based reservations they will corner even more jobs. They have done it before, they got a resource rich chunk of India as separate country. Jinnah, Iqbal, Sir Syed all these ideological fathers of Pakistan are upper caste Ashrafs. The feudal lords and Generals of Pakistan who hold all power and wealth are also upper castes.

    Policies of a secular state should not be based on religion. So any jobs/ political positions should not be reserved for any particular religion.

    In case of Muslims, land and resources were given to them (especially upper caste Muslims. that too more than what was their percentage at time of partition. even then lot of Muslims stayed in India (which is commendable. nice thing) so ideally India should take back at least one third land and rivers from Pakistan.

    Caste based reservations is a different thing. For lower castes among Muslims and Christians to be eligible for applying for reserved seats on basis of caste, ideally, first it should be accepted and officially declared that Islam and Christianity follow caste system. The top clergy of Saudi Arabia/iran/iraq and all the popes etc should officially declare that their religions follow caste system. or else, people should leave these religions. but maybe inclusion of few very backward castes among Indian Muslims within the existing quota may be tolerated, though it is morally wrong.
