News : Haj Committee To Help Muslims Get Into Civil Services

The government, too, has woken up to this and there is a growing concern within the administration to reach out to the minority community. The plan is to encourage Muslim students to appear for the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) and Maharashtra State Public Commission — the Indian Administrative (IAS) and Indian Police Services (IPS).

Taking a cue, the Haj Committee of India, has chalked out a plan to encourage Muslim students to appear for the various civil service examinations. Among their various plans starting a coaching class to groom students for the civil service examination is the first step.

The committee’s chief executive officer Muhammed Owais told DNA, “We have a lot of space and we will start coaching classes for the minority students to help them appear for civil service examinations and other all-India tests such as the railways, banking and other public sector jobs.”

The first batch will have 50 students with experts on board for every subject. Advertisements seeking students to enroll will be advertised in all leading regional language and Urdu papers.

“We will advertise in the papers calling potential students, who have passed the preliminary exams and the selection process will be transparent,” said Owais.

Owais further, stated that the Haj House in Crawford Market will also provide hostel facilities for the students coming in from other cities. “We have noticed that Muslim parents do not encourage their children to appear for these exams as they cannot afford to send them to bigger cities.
