The Muslim Federation of India (IUML) has rejected a government proposal to create a committee of experts to find a solution to a problem that arose after the Supreme Court overturned a ruling that violated the 80:20 ratio in granting scholarships to minorities. At a press conference in Malappuram on Sunday, IUML leaders P.K. Kunhalikutty and E.T.Muhammad Bashir said that such a committee is unnecessary as it only delays a decision. They said there were enough reports from various committees that the government just had to put them into effect.

"The government didn’t present this suggestion at the all-party meeting held on Friday. We came to know about the proposal to form an expert committee through the government’s press release," mentioned by Kunhalikutty.  Basheer said the court order created a serious crisis for the Muslim community and that no scholarships would be awarded this academic year. “No recommendation of the Sachar Commission report can be implemented after the verdict. The party expected a concrete solution taking into consideration the gravity of the problem,” he mentioned.

The prime minister said that further discussions would be held at the meeting and the government would seek legal advice. “There are several persons, including the Advocate General, from whom the government can get legal advice with one hour,” stated Basheer. “It is clear that the government wants to procrastinate and an expert committee is only a tool for the purpose. If the government continues with the attitude, we will think of other possibilities,” he mentioned.

When asked if the IUML rejected the formation of an expert committee in plenary, Kunhalikutty replied that this proposal never appeared in the meeting."Opposition leader repeatedly asked whether the government has any suggestion, but the answer was in the negative,"  Kunhalikutty mentioned. The IUML leader said his party has submitted a written proposal to address the issue. Unlike other states, the Kerala government has created an intermediary body called the Paloli Committee to carry out the reports of the Sahara Committee. The IUML leaders said they are not opposed to the party serving other ethnic communities through various programs, but that the services of the Sahara committee are only for Muslims.
