Muslims march to Assembly today with their demands

On the heels of the Maratha morcha held in Nagpur yesterday, a Muslim morcha was held today repeating demands for 5% reservation for Muslims and also registering protest over Allahbad High Court’s recent decision stating that Triple talaq was illegal.

Muslims in large numbers marched under the banner of Jamat Ulema e Hind organization, one of the leading Muslim organizations of the country established in 1910.

Point to note is that this morcha was bigger than the Maratha morcha outnumbering it almost 2 to 1.

Speaking on the issue in the House earlier the C.M. had ruled out reservations for Muslims in Education saying our Constitution does not permit it.
