BJP OBC Morcha chief told the formula on the demand of reservation for Dalit Muslims

New Delhi. For some time, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been continuously mentioning the need for the development of Pasmanda Muslims. This is the reason that the Bharatiya Janata Party has turned its focus towards Dalit and backward Muslims. The BJP, which is engaged in wooing these Pasmanda Muslims who constitute 85 percent of the total population of Muslims in India, is often targeted by other opposition political parties, one of the main reasons for this is that these parties consider Pasmanda Muslims as their core vote bank. However, the Pasmanda community has been continuously raising three major demands and is expecting support from the BJP, ranging from the demand for reservation for Dalit Muslims under Article 341, job opportunities for Pasmanda Muslims and assistance under the MSME section, and The demand for implementation of Karpoori Thakur’s reservation formula like in Bihar is included in the entire country.

In such a situation, the big question is whether the BJP, which is holding conferences and meetings in almost all the states to woo the Pasmanda community, also supports the demand for reservation for Dalits and backward Muslims? Will BJP take any step to fulfill the demands of Pasmanda Muslims or not? about these questions news 18 hindi has National President of Bharatiya Janata Party OBC Morcha and Rajya Sabha MP and member of the Central Parliamentary Board BJP Dr K Laxman Had a special conversation with.

Question. BJP has been focusing on Pasmanda Muslims for some time now. Is BJP now eyeing the votes of Pasmanda Muslims?

answer. Prime Minister Narendra Modi talks about development for all. All the people of the country come in all, whether they are Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, forward or backward. The BJP OBC Morcha was formed in 2015 itself, after the formation of the Modi government at the Centre, then the elections were not going to come. The only goal of the Modi government was that those who are deprived, exploited, should get their rights, should get the benefits of the schemes, they should also reach the level of the elders. As far as Pasmanda Muslims are concerned, whether they voted for BJP or not, it is not an issue, their development should be important. 85 percent of the country’s population is of downtrodden Muslims, who are called Pasmanda, BJP is making efforts to benefit them.

Question. So does the BJP and the Modi government support the demand for reservation for Pasmanda Muslims?
answer. Yes, Pasmanda Muslims also have some demands regarding reservation, but the thing to be understood here is that in almost all the states, reservation is already being given to backward classes under OBC, in which a large number of backward and deprived Muslims are also included. Baba Saheb Ambedkar himself had arranged for reservation for economically, educationally or socially backward people in the Constitution of India. Ambedkar also opposed reservation in the name of religion. That’s why separate reservation should be given to Pasmanda community, it is not right from the point of view of the constitution and the constitution is paramount. Even the court will not accept the demand of reservation for Dalit Muslims. BJP does not support anything which is against the constitution just for the sake of votes.
