Reservations for Muslims in India

A Step for Inclusive Development

Elucidating the process by which the large majority of backward classes among Muslims in India have been brought under the umbrella of reservations, this paper points out the importance of extending social justice in a constitutionally valid and judicially sustainable manner. Pointing to the fallacy of the Ranganath Misra Commission's initial recommendation of 15% reservation for minorities, it highlights the relevance of its real recommendation of a sub-quota for the minorities within the Mandal Commission-based backward class quota of 27%.

This article is based on the inaugural address given at the seminar on “Reservations for Muslims in India: A Step Towards Inclusive Development” that was held at Maulana Azad National Urdu University, Hyderabad, March 2012.
