It is painful to see how Jaichandi Hindu politicians right from the days of the 1916 Congress-Muslim League Lucknow Pact till date in form of the Sachar Committee Report, Ranganath Misra Commission, the 15-Point Programme, etc, have been systematically harming all Hindus by concocting false justifications to reduce, bit by bit, promotional avenues of all the Hindu civil servants and the educational, employment and economic (E3) opportunities of all Hindu boys and girls, including SC, ST, OBC and Leftist Hindu boys and girls, North Indian or South Indian Hindus, all Hindu members of NSUI, ABVP, SFI, etc, pushing them to second and third class status vis-à-vis minority boys and girls.
The Hindustan Times of December 24, 2008 reported that the Parliament was informed by the Manmohan Singh Government that as a result of special efforts made by the UPA Government the share of minorities in Central Sector jobs increased from 6.9 per cent in 2006-07 to 8.7 per cent in 2007-08. It increased from 7.6 per cent in 2006-07 in the Financial Sector [Banks, FIs, RBI] to 10.2 per cent; in the Armed Forces from 5.5 pc to 8.9 pc and in the Railways from 2.7pc to 6.3pc during the same period of one year.
Consequently, the percentage of Hindus in the Central Sector declined.
I place below seven (A to G) bare facts which show that we Hindu voters have been lacking in parental care and have contributed to reducing our own children and grand children to second class status by being careless and casual at times of voting.
When I bring these facts to the notice of educated Hindus most of them express shock on their being ignorant of these facts, and blame media and Jaichandi Hindu politicians for this betrayal. But in my humble opinion Hindu voters are themselves responsible for this plight of their children who either abstain from voting or vote to anti-Hindu parties like the Congress Party, NCP, Communist parties and Janata parivar parties.
[A] First let us look into harm which the Ranganath Misra Commission Report would inflict upon all the Hindu civil servants, Hindu students and all the Hindu job seekers.
On December 18, 2009 the UPA Government tabled the Ranganath Misra Commission Report on the table of the Parliament. It has recommended reducing job opportunities of all Hindu officials and Hindu youth at least by 15 per cent, reducing availability of college seats to all sections of Hindu students by at least 15 per cent and disadvantaging SC and ST Hindus by yoking them within their reservation quotas with Muslims and Christians who enjoy better literacy rate.
Para 16.2.16 of the Misra Commission reads: “Since the minorities-especially the Muslims-are very much under-represented, and sometimes wholly unrepresented, in government employment, we recommend that they should be regarded as backward in this respect within the meaning of that term as used in Article 16 (4) of the Constitution-notably without qualifying the word ‘backward’ with the words “socially and educationally”-and that 15 per cent of posts in all cadres and grades under the Central and State Governments should be earmarked for them.”
In the Indira Sawhney case, the Supreme Court had observed- “It is, therefore, clear that economic criterion by itself will not identify the backward classes under Article 16(4). The economic backwardness of the backward classes under Article 16(4) has to be on account of their social and educational backwardness. Hence, no reservation of posts in services under the State, based exclusively on economic criterion, would be valid under clause (1) of Article 16 of the Constitution.”
So the Misra Commission recommendation is totally unlawful as it suggests giving reservations to the Muslims by ignoring the requirements of the Constitution and the Indira Sawhney case law.
All the Hindu officers serving under the Central Government or any State Government should take note that the Misra Commission has recommended reservation of 15 per cent of posts for religious minorities in all cadres and grades under the Central and the State Governments. Ten pc will be solely for the Muslim officials/candidates and five pc for other minorities.
It means that from the date of implementation 15 per cent posts in the grade of Secretary to Government of India, and other grades of Additional Secretary, Joint Secretary, etc, shall get reserved for minority officers which will block or retard career prospect of many Hindu officers and may result into many Hindu officers serving under their own junior minority religion officers. This would be happening all over India and in all departments, central as well as provincial, whether school teachers, lecturers, Deputy superintendents of Police, engineers, deputy collectors, inspectors of police, customs, income tax, public sector undertakings, etc.
So it is high time that all the Hindu officials and all those Hindus who aspire to join public services should come out of their secular slumber and open their eyes to see that it is Congress Party aided by Communists and various parties (Mulayam Singh, Mayawati, Karunanidhi, Sharad Pawar, Chandrababu Naidu, etc.) that is going to harm their career interests permanently and irreversibly.
The Misra Commission has made a false claim that the Muslims are under-represented in services. Supporters of Muslim reservation often say that the Muslims are about 13 per cent of population but in IAS, etc., their representation is much less at about 4 per cent so they are under-represented in services and there should be reservation for them to boost their per cent to 13 per cent. For getting into class one services one has to be a graduate. Vide its table 3.6 Misra Commission reports that graduation percentage of Muslims is only 3.6 pc. As only graduates can aspire for public services percentage of Muslims in services at 4 per cent is fair and already more than commensurate to their graduation percentage.
Further the Muslims are about 4 pc in services but 10 per cent jobs in all cadres and grades are proposed to be reserved for them by the Congress. It means that the Muslim officers will have much faster pace of promotions vis-à-vis Hindu officers and will also occupy senior positions for longer periods than the Hindu officers.
Shri Arif Mohammed Khan, a former Union Minister in the Rajiv Gandhi Government has pointed out that 10 Muslim communities are already part of the Scheduled Tribes and another 83 Muslim communities are included in the OBC list. “Together,” he maintains, “they constitute more than 70 per cent of total Muslim population leaving out only the Muslim creamy layer.” Similarly, a good chunk of the Christians are already included in the Scheduled Tribes and the OBC category.
The Constitution of India as well as the Supreme Court has laid down that social and educational backwardness are essential to become eligible for getting reservation under Article 16(4). But Muslims as a community enjoy better literacy rate than Hindus in 11 states and better literacy rate than SC Hindus and ST Hindus on national level so they are not entitled for any reservation as they are not educationally backward.
In its para 12.3 the Misra Commission itself states: “Analysis of literacy rate reveals that Muslims were better off than Scheduled castes and Scheduled tribes.”
According to the 2001 census, the Sachar Committee and the Misra Commission [table 3.5, paras12.3, 18.5, etc.] Christians have higher literacy rate [80 per cent] as compared to other religious minorities as well as the national percentage of 65 per cent. Christians have higher literacy rate than the Hindus. Christians have higher per capita income too. So Christians too cannot claim to be backward in any sense.
In eleven states, Muslim males have higher literacy rate than Hindu males. These states are Andhra Pradesh, Andaman & Nicobar, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Kerala, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Puducherry and Tamil Nadu.
In thirteen states, the Muslim women enjoy higher literacy rate than the Hindu women, these are Andhra Pradesh, Andaman & Nicobar, Chhattisgarh, Daman & Diu, Dadra & Nagarhaveli, Gujarat, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Orissa, Puducherry and Tamil Nadu. [Statements 8a and 8b, Census Report 2001].
The Sachar Committee [page 53] also admits that in ten states literacy rate among the Muslims are higher than even that of the upper caste Hindus and also higher than SC/ST Hindus.
Let us examine how many jobs the Hindus are going to lose in terms of Misra Report. Till 2009, SC Hindus were entitled to get 1,500 posts out of every 10,000 posts in Government sector, OBC Hindus were entitled to 2,700 posts and ST Hindus were entitled for 750 posts.
The UPA Government in terms of Ranganath Misra Commission is planning to reserve 15 per cent posts for minorities, and as Dr Manmohan Singh has publicly asserted in December 2006 that since minorities have first claim over government resources so SC Hindus will get 15 per cent of remaining 8,500 posts i.e. 1,270 posts, OBC Hindus [including OBC Muslims and Christians] will get 27 per cent of 8,500 i.e. 2,290 posts and ST Hindus [including ST Christians] will get 7.5 per cent of 8,500 i.e. 630 posts.
The upper castes Hindu candidates till 2009 were eligible to compete for 5,050 posts out of every 10,000 posts but now under Manmohan formula they can compete only for 4,310 seats. And wonder of wonder is that this reduction in E3 space of all categories of Hindu applicants will be achieved on strength of those Hindus who gave their notes and votes to the Congress Party or to other Jaichandi parties.
The Misra Report Para 16.2.7 reads:” As by the force of judicial decisions the minority intake in minority educational institutions has, in the interest of national integration, been restricted to about 50 per cent, thus virtually earmarking the remaining 50 per cent or so for the majority community-we strongly recommend that, by the same analogy and for the same purpose, at least 15 per cent seats in all non-minority educational institutions should be earmarked by law for the minorities as follows:
(a) The break-up within the recommended 15 per cent earmarked seats in institutions shall be 10 per cent for the Muslims (commensurate with their 73 per cent share of the former in the total minority population at the national level) and the remaining 5 per cent for the other minorities.
(b) Minor adjustments inter se can be made in the 15 per cent earmarked seats. In the case of non-availability of Muslim candidates to fill 10 per cent earmarked seats, the remaining vacancies may be given to the other minorities if their members are available over and above their share of 5 per cent; but in no case shall any seat within the recommended 15 per cent go to the majority community.
(c) As is the case with the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes at present, those minority community candidates who can compete with others and secure admission on their own merit shall not be included in these 15 per cent earmarked seats.”
As and when it is implemented, Hindu students with marks better than minority candidates may start getting admissions refused even in non-minority institutions managed by Hindu organisations such as Vidya Bharati, DAV Colleges, etc. At present out of every 10,000 engineering seats in non-minority institutions OBC Hindu students get 2,700 seats reserved for them, 1,500 seats for SC Hindus and 750 for ST Hindus. After Misra Report is implemented 1,500 seats would first get reserved for minority students, 27 pc of remaining 8,500 seats i.e. 1,250 for OBCs and 630 for STs. So there shall be reduction of seats for all Hindu students.
Marxist Hindus, NSUI Hindu students shall also suffer forced shrinkage of their E3 space.
[B] Hindu students with better marks are being denied admissions into nurseries, schools, colleges and universities run by minorities, whether aided out of taxes collected from Hindus or unaided. For example, cut-off marks for Christian students for admission into St. Stephen’s College, Delhi University and cut-off marks for Sikh students into the Khalsa College, DU and cut-off marks for Muslims in Jamia Hamdard University is lower than those for the Hindu students. Same is the case all over India in all districts.
Hindus are generally under-represented in the staff of minority institutions, and, posts of principals, etc, are generally reserved for non-Hindus. For example the rule of St. Stephen’s College Delhi stipulates that a Hindu cannot be its principal and Vice principal though it receives annual grant of crores of rupees from the Government out of taxes collected from the Hindus. Hindu candidates with better CVs are generally denied jobs in these institutions. More than 90 pc teaching staff of the Aligarh Muslim University are non-Hindus.
Hindustan Times [July 10, 2008] and The Indian Express [July 18, 2008] reported that St. Stephen’s College, Delhi gives preference to Christian candidates in appointments. MS Frank, the then acting Principal insisted appointing only Christians. The Supreme Council of this college clarified that a Christian candidate who met the minimum qualifications shall be given preference over non-Christian candidates in matters of appointments. Similar ill-treatment is handed down to the Hindus all over India by all other minority institutions. Hindus have invited this ill treatment of their own by giving their votes to the Congress and the Communist parties.
These institutions quote Supreme Court decisions to justify the second class treatment of all Hindus in matters of admission and employment. In nutshell the Supreme Court has ruled that Hindus do not enjoy equality rights guaranteed by the Article 14 of the Constitution in the minority institutions whether aided or unaided. In other words according to the Supreme Court Article 14 of the Constitution is not uniformly applicable everywhere and to everyone. This is a flawed interpretation of the Constitution by Supreme Court.
[C] The Constitution of India [Articles 15 and 16] guarantees 15 per cent reservations for SC Hindus and 7.5 per cent reservations for ST Hindus but they are denied these constitutionally guaranteed rights in admissions as well as in employment in minority institutions with silent support and connivance of Jaichandi Hindu politicians.
The OBC Hindus have been given 27 per cent reservations in academic institutions but the Manmohan Singh Government has framed rules in such a way that OBC Hindus are denied this constitutionally guaranteed reservation all over India in all minority institutions.
The point is that as the Constitution is in force on every square inch of India so these reservations must be available to SC, ST and OBC Hindus in all minority institutions all over India. At present some Articles of Constitution are applicable at one place but not at other places. The selective application of the Constitution is flawed and has to be opposed.
The National Commission for Scheduled Castes headed by Congressman Shri Buta Singh also favours giving ‘reserved’ status to Dalit converts to Christianity and Islam but does not want them to be included in the 15 per cent SC quota and wants to further reduce seats available to general class Hindus so as to create a new quota for Dalit converts. [Times of India, July 14, 2007]. So general category Hindus will get size of their cake further reduced if they continue to vote for any Jaichandi party in any election.
Hindu students get student loans at higher interest rate of about 10 per cent to 12 per cent per annum but minority students get student loan at 3 per cent per annum from the National Minority Development & Finance Corporation under the Union Ministry of Finance. For confirmation please visit www.nmdfc.org. This discrimination against Hindu students has been made possible by those Hindus who vote to the Congress Party or to any UPA party.
On August 27, 2009 the Manmohan Singh government decided that any student whose parents’ income is below Rs 4.5 lakh per annum will get full interest subsidy on his student loan for professional course during the course period. But after the course is over a Hindu student has to pay interest at same higher rate of 10 to 12 whereas a minority student will pay at 3 per cent.
[D] Hindu youths get loans from commercial banks to start a new business at 15 per cent to 18 per cent interest and has to arrange ‘margin money’ of 15 per cent to 40 per cent of project cost from his private sources, balance comes from the bank. But a minority youth has to put in only 5 per cent of project cost as margin money from his private source, other 35 per cent is given by the National Minority Development and Finance Corporation at 3 per cent interest, and remaining 60 per cent of finance is given by commercial banks at two percentage points less than general lending rate for Hindus.
On March 13, 2007 the then Finance Minister P Chidambaram had told the Rajya Sabha that of the total priority sector lending, loans to minorities had increased by 33 per cent to Rs 45,490 crore on March 31, 2006 as against Rs 34,654 crore when the UPA Government took office in May 2004.
So, Hindu businessmen will increase their own difficulties in getting bank loans by financing the elections of Congress Party and other UPA parties.
This second class treatment in banking sector has been invited by those Hindus who give their votes to the Congress Party or to any Jaichandi Party.
[E] The Manmohan Singh Government has directed that all minority students admitted to 70 top institutions of India like IIMs, IITs, etc, will get their total fees paid by the Government but Hindu students, whether Leftist or Rightist, whether North Indian or South Indian, whether member of NSUI or SFI have to pay their fees.
If a minority student decides to join any coaching centre to prepare for admission into colleges or Public Service Examinations or jobs in government and private sectors he gets total fees of coaching centre paid by the government but a Hindu student or his parent has to pay the fees of coaching centre. Details may be seen at www.minorityaffairs.gov.in.
At pre-matric and at post-matric level a minority student will get scholarship from class I onwards if he has secured not less than 50 per cent marks in the previous year examination but such facility is not there for all Hindu students. The SC, ST and OBC Hindu students have to have more than 60 per cent marks for being eligible for any scholarship though Muslims, Christians etc enjoy higher literacy rates. Further SC, ST and OBC Hindu students get scholarships from class VI onwards.
[F] It may come as total surprise to many Hindus that there are many posts under the Government which are paid out of taxes collected from the Hindus but a Hindu howsoever Liberal or Marxist he may be, he is legally debarred from holding such posts, such as posts of the Chairman of National and Provincial Minority Commissions, Principal of St. Stephen’s Delhi, [and similar minority institutions running into thousands and thousands all over India] etc.
Under Section 3 of the National Minority Commission Act, a Hindu cannot be its Chairman and at least five of its seven members including Chairman shall have to be from amongst the minority communities. This law was enacted by PV Narsimha Rao government.
Section 4 of the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions Act 2004 passed by the Manmohan Singh Government stipulates that only persons from minority communities shall be eligible to be appointed as Chairman and members of this Commission. Hindus have been totally excluded from this Commission.
As representation of Hindus in Sachar Committee, Ranganath Commission, etc, have been below their demographic strength it is obvious that these lack democratic weight.
In pursuance of the 2004 Congress manifesto, on March 10, 2006, the Lok Sabha passed the National Commission for Minority Educational (Amendment) Bill according to which the provincial governments will have to give no objection certificate within 90 days of application for setting-up an institution by religious minorities, or, else the government will have to specify reasons for refusal. The aggrieved party will have right to approach the Commission which, in turn, will take a final decision in consultation with the State. Composition of even this Commission is not representative to the total exclusion of Hindus and the wonder is that Hindus, howsoever Secular or Leftist, are debarred from being made even a member of this Commission by an Act of the Parliament passed in November 2004. However, if no reasons are given by a State government for not giving the NOC within 90 days, it would be deemed as the approval of the State .The Act also provides for the right of minority institutions to seek affiliation to any university of their choice listed in this Act. The Bill was supported by all UPA partners including the Left parties, Samajwadi Party of Shri Mulayam Singh and the Bahujan Samaj Party, etc. It was criticised by the Bhartiya Janata Party and Shiv Sena. So, a Muslim institution in a far off place, say, Jhumri Taliya in Jharkhand can demand affiliation to any named central university of its choice and its students will get degrees of that central university and thus, will enjoy better marketability in the employment market whereas a Hindu student of the same region will have degree of a provincial university having less marketability in the employment market. Thus, with votes of Hindu parents, Shri Arjun Singh the then HRD Minister and the UPA Government placed Muslim and Christian students at higher and better pedestal in the employment market than Hindu students. Those Hindu parents in rural areas who voted for the Congress Party and its Jaichandi allies in the 2004 and 2009 elections have thus actually harmed the future of their own children.
Right from sixties the educational, employment and economic [E3] opportunities for Hindu youngsters were being reduced bit by bit by all the previous Congress Governments and pace of this reduction has been accelerated by the Manmohan Singh Government. And irony is that this harm to Hindus was and is being done on the strength of those Hindu voters who either innocently vote the Congress Party or its UPA partners or abstain from voting.
[G] To reduce the percentage of Hindus and to increase the percentage of minorities in the government sector the UPA government has ordered inclusion of minority members in all Selection Boards and Departmental Promotion Committees [DPCs].
The circular to induct religious minority members in Selection Boards was issued during Prime Ministership of Rajiv Gandhi vide OM No39016/6(s)/87-Estt(B) dated June 10, 1987 and during the Prime Ministership of Vishwanath Pratap Singh, another secular veteran vide OM 39016/6(S)89-Estt(B) dated 16th August 1990
In January 2007 the Department of Personnel and Training, Government of India, sent a note to all “heads of departments, public sector banks and financial institutions, quasi-Government organisations, autonomous bodies, etc. and all appointing authorities,” asking them to “scrupulously observe” guidelines to make selection panels more representative. All selection panels recruiting ten or more vacancies must have one member belonging to a minority community. This circular instructs to give special considerations to minorities in all appointments, so danger bell is ringing loud and clear for all Hindu job seekers whether they are Leftists or Rightists, whether upper caste or lower castes that despite their better profiles they may not be selected.
At present Hindus constitute over 95 per cent in all services and the Manmohan Singh Government with the help of Hindu voters is trying to reduce the Hindu percentage in government and public sector undertakings to less than 85 per cent.
Thus, it is clear that Jaichandi Hindu politicians have treacherously created such a system in which a minority is eligible to apply for each and every post paid by the State but not a Hindu. A minority student gets student loan and commercial loans at rates lower than a Hindu. A minority student with more than 50 per cent marks gets scholarship but not all Hindu students with more than 50 per cent marks. In minority run institutions a Hindu is given step brotherly treatment in matters of admissions and employment but in government run and Hindu run institutions a minority candidate has to be treated at par with Hindus and to ensure that a minority is treated on par there are national and provincial minority commissions headed and dominated by minorities.
Hindu voters who do not want to harm the career prospects of their own or of their children and grandchildren must never cast their votes in favour of any Jaichandi Hindu politician or any Jaichandi party.
