Govt data shows select schemes not reaching Muslims: Ansari


New Delhi , July 12 :
Former vice president Hamid Ansari on Thursday said certain government schemes were not reaching certain minority communities, based on government data.In an exclusive interview to ANI, Ansari said, “If one needs help in education or social related things, then, he/she should be given help through government programs. But according to some government reports based on complaints received, few of the government’s schemes are not reaching them (Muslims).”
Ansari also urged the concept of equality for all.
“According to the country, there are 14.5 percent of Muslims in India. But in some areas, the percentage is high like Assam, West Bengal, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, etc. The basic thing is they all are citizens. So, all the rights and duties given to all citizens should be given to them (Muslims) as well. No one should claim that they are different and they are getting less as compared to others. “Reacting on incidents of lynching, the former vice president said that nobody has the right to take law into their own hands.
