National general secretary of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and Member of Parliament Tariq Anwar has welcomed the central government directive to all states to appoint at least one Muslim inspector in each police station. Talking to presspersons, Anwar said the directive, given in the light of the Sachar Committee recommendations, to appoint Muslim police inspectors and increase Muslim staff in teaching institutions, health department and banks is a welcome move.
Mr. Tariq Anwar said the picture of Muslims depicted in Sachar Committee report was very depressing. In spite of being the second largest majority of the country, they are not only lagging in educational and economic fields but their employment ratio is also very low. He demanded Nitish Kumar-led JDU-BJP government in Bihar to follow the instructions given by the Union Government.
