I heard about the Justice Rajinder Sachar Committee report on social, economic and educational status of Muslims across India was tabled in Lok Sabha.
It recognizes special problems of the Muslim community in India and suggest very creative measures relating to affirmative action programs, special quotas etc to help needy Muslims.
A brief review indicates to me that condition of Muslims in India is generally similar to condition of Sindhis and Balochis in Pakistan. We need a similar Commission, a similar report and a similar action program by the government of Pakistan for our community.
