Reacting strongly on the move to grant reservation to the Muslims within the OBC’s quota, the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) said any such move would not be accepted at all. In a statement issued in New Delhi on December 1, VHP general secretary Dr Pravin Togadia demanded immediate withdrawal of the proposal aimed at snatching the rights of OBCs, SCs, STs or even any independent quota for Muslims. He appealed to SCs/STs, OBCs and all other castes to come together as one to prevent further breaking of Bharat.
“One after another decision, the Government has been proving that it is specifically targeting Hindus. When they came to power, they repealed POTA and gave free hand to jehadi terrorists; then they created NIA to put Hindus into jail; and now Union Law Minister announced that he would send proposal to the Cabinet to be passed for the Muslim quota from OBCs 27 per cent. The intension is clear: Government wants that no Sanatani, Jain, Sikh should ever survive in Bharat. Muslims produce unlimited children in the name of religion and claim reservations on the basis of that number whereas Hindus and others are compelled to limit family to 2 kids. This is ‘Population Jehad’, which has put excess load on Bharat due to which our economy has become shaky. Now snatching the facilities of the poor, backward communities from OBC, the government is giving them to Muslims. This is truly a reservation jehad by the government against Hindus and others. There are around 175 sub-castes in OBCs and with the government’s decision to give part of their quota to Muslims will hurt them immensely,” Dr Togadia said in the statement.
