Muslim quota should be withdrawn: VHP
Varanasi: Speaking out against reservation for Muslims, the VHP has said it will launch a "peaceful" agitation if the central government`s decision to secure 4.5 per cent Muslim quota within the 27 per cent reservation for OBCs is not withdrawn.
A nationwide agitation, the `Hindu Roti Bachao Andolan,` will be launched against the decision, he said addressing a press conference here on Tuesday.
The Congress-led UPA had thrown "fodder" in front of Muslims, he alleged, adding that the government has taken away the facilities of education, employment and bank loan from OBCs through this and also the rights of the most-backward classes.
This step may pave the way for religion-based reservation, which is not allowed in the constitution, he said.
