President of Indian Union Muslim League G.M. Banatwala has appealed to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to place the Sachar Committee report in Parliament.
Mr. Banatwala said the report had confirmed that Muslims were the most backward community. The committee, however, had not recommended reservation for Muslims; but Parliament could decide on it and the Prime Minister had to take up this issue, he said.
The IUML would soon launch a nation-wide campaign to ensure that educational and economic backwardness of Muslims was adequately addressed, he said.
