Suneeta Mahajan | HENB | Mumbai | March 2, 2020:: Two days after a Muslim minister in the Maharashta coalition government said a new bill to give 5 per cent reservation for Muslims in educational institutions will be introduced in the state assembly soon, the Shiv Sena, another member of the alliance, denied any such proposal.
The denial from Uddhav Thackeray’s Sena comes after right-wing group Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) raised concerns over reports that the tri-party alliance government – of the Shiva Sena, Sharad Pawar’s party and the Congress – is planning to quota to Muslims in educational institutions.
“News of the Maharashtra government’s decision to grant religion-based reservation to Muslims is worrisome. The appeasement of Muslims should not be done by a government led by the Shiv Sena. This is the Hindu society’s expectation, ” the VHP tweeted in Hindi on Saturday.
On Sunday morning, the Shiv Sena’s communication cell replied to the VHP’s tweeted in Hindi, “No such subject is under discussion.”
Maharashtra Minority Affairs Minister Nawab Malik, of Sharad Pawar’s Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) had said on Friday that the government is also planning to make room for reservation in jobs and that the government is seeking legal advice for it.
After Vishwa Hindu Parishad raised concerns over the reports that Maharashtra’s ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government is planning to give reservation to Muslims, Shiv Sena finally denied on Sunday any such proposal for the same.
Earlier, Maharashtra’s Minority Affairs Minister, Nawab Malik on February 28 announced that a law will be made to give reservation to Muslims in educational institutions in the state.
“High Court had given its nod to give five per cent reservation to Muslims in government educational institutions. The last government did not take any action on it. So we have announced that we will implement the High Court’s order in the form of law as soon as possible,” Malik said.
“We have announced that as per the High Court’s order we will give reservation to the Muslim community in education soon by making a law,” added Malik.
As a matter of fact, to mow down the issue of Muslim reservation in Maharashtra as franchised by Nawab Malik of NCP, Hindu interlocutor and Hindu Existence Editor, Upananda Brahmachari, not only attracted the attention for the issue with Shiv Sena, BJP, RSS and VHP end; Brahmachari personally contacted with the key Hindutva operators in Shiv Sena and BJP to check the Islamic reservation move in Maharashtra.
