A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking to stop the implementation of the recommendations of the Sachar Committee. The Sachar Committee was formed to know the conditions of social, economic and educational backwardness of the Muslim community in the country. In the year 2006, this committee also submitted its report. Now the followers of ‘Sanatan Vedic Dharma’ have filed a petition requesting to stop the implementation of the recommendations of this report.

The committee was constituted by the UPA government in March 2005 under the chairmanship of former Chief Justice of Delhi High Court Rajendra Sachar. The committee was to prepare a report on the social, economic and educational status of the Muslim community in the country. The petition, filed by five people from Uttar Pradesh, has alleged that in the notification issued on March 9, 2005 from the Prime Minister’s Office for the constitution of the committee, “nowhere does it mention that it is being issued after any decision of the Cabinet”. .

The petition, filed through advocate Vishnu Shankar Jain, said, “Thus, it is evident that the then Prime Minister himself issued the direction to know the social, economic and educational status of the Muslim community, whereas Article 14 And 15 states that no religious community can be treated separately.

The petition states that the power to constitute such a commission rests with the President under Article 340 of the Constitution. The petition claimed that the appointment of the committee was in violation of Article 77 and was “unconstitutional and illegal”. The petition has sought that the Center be restrained from implementing the report to initiate any scheme for the Muslim community.

The petition has been filed at a time when the Center has defended Scheduled Caste welfare schemes especially for religious minorities, stating that these schemes do not violate the rights of Hindus and not against the principle of equality. Huh.
