VHP working president Dr Pravin Togadia welcomed the Andhra Pradesh High Court judgement on scrapping 4.5 per cent Muslim reservation. The High Court criticised the Andhra Pradesh and Central Government and asked to explain ‘how the Muslims are backward?’ The High Court also told that Muslim reservation is clear violation of Article 15 and 16 of the Indian Constitution. It was forth time that the Andhra Pradesh High Court has scrapped the Muslim reservation. This time it was referred by the Supreme Court.
In a statement issued on May 28 the VHP working president Dr Pravin Togadia demanded that in view of the Andhra Pradesh High Court judgement the Central Government should immediately withdraw 4.5 per cent Muslim reservation from OBC quota, otherwise the VHP would exercise judicial option as well as pubic agitation to cancel the Muslim Reservation by Central Government.
