Say the Quran commentators
Surely, the original Darul Hijrat was Madinah,

But since then
Wherever uprooted Muslims get space
to peacefully practice the
Divine Unity (Tawheed)
becomes Darul Hijrat.

Muslim charities need to have a
regular head of
expenditure

Congress releases sub-
manifesto related to minorities.

The sub-manifesto has accepted almost all the major demands of Muslims. These include:
1. Extension of Scheduled Caste status to all Dalit Minorities.
2. Examine feasibility of mandating the next Delimitation Commission to ensure that Minorities arent
disenfranchised through reservation of constituencies where minority population equals or exceeds SC/
ST population.
3. Ensure adequate representation of Minorities in all public positions.
4. Ensure that funds earmarked for Minorities are allocated to various minority groups in a population-
proportionate manner.
5. Earmark reservation of 4.5 percent for backward Muslims in the existing OBC reservations.
6. Ensure adequate representation of minorities in student and faculty in educational institutions.
7. Establish a Minority Commission in every state to safeguard the interests of minorities.
8. Undertake special awareness drives to educate Minorities about government schemes for
their benefit.
9. Ensure improved accountability mechanisms for proper implementation of government schemes for
the welfare of minorities.
10. Press for implementation of former Prime Minister, Mrs Indira Gandhis letter to state chief ministers
to ensure that Waqf properties illegally occupied by state and Central governments are vacated and
restored to the State Waqf Boards.
11. Ensure utilization of funds allocated for the publicity of Madrasa Scheme (SPQEM) in Urdu and other
languages.
12. Ensure implementation of Central Urdu Teachers Scheme across states.
13. Empower Equal Opportunity Commission to check discrimination against Minorities in employment
and education opportunities.
14. Institute a Committee to enquire into the socio-economic status of all Minority groups, Sikhs,
Christians, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Muslims to ensure equitable access to government benefits for
the welfare of Minorities.

De-reserve constituencies
with substantial Muslim influence

Immediately appoint the next Delimitation Commission
with clear time-bound mandate
to remove these anomalies.
(Sachar Committee Report)
www.zakatindia.org
Times of India report of ZFI's meeting with Prime Minister
ZakatIndia.org
TwoCircles.net
Sachar Committee strongly recommended that the
Delimitation Commission should be asked to remove
the anomaly

But, no action taken so far, nor is there any talk
about it.

BJP should submit a memorandum to the President,
demanding implementation of this Sachar
recommendation
