Milli Council demands reservation in legislature for Muslim, Dalit women |

  • tags: no_tag

    • All India Milli Council reiterated its demand for reservation to Muslim and Dalit women in Parliament by making changes in the draft bill on 33% reservation to women. The organization held a press conference today at Press Club of India in New Delhi to make the demand when the Parliament’s winter session started around talks that the bill may be put to vote in this session.
    • Mr Khan said if the bill is passed in the present form this will further curtail the presence of Muslims in the Parliament.
    • There were seven people – six men and a Hindu Dalit woman – on the dais. When they were asked why these Muslim organizations do not give rightful position to women in their hierarchy – evidence of it that no Muslim woman was there – the leaders again had no satisfying answer.
