TOPPER : Dr Waseemur Rahman(404 Rank) - A Darul Uloom Deoband graduate clears UPSC

This year 27 Muslim candidates have been selected for the Indian Administrative Services (IAS) by clearing written test and interview. The number of Muslims qualifying for this year’s IAS is 10 more than the last year. Last year only 17 Muslim candidates had qualified for the civil services.

But the difference with the increased number of Muslims qualifying for the coveted job is more to do with the larger number of the students qualifying for it than any other factor. Last year the total number of selected candidates was only 474 as against this year’s 734. The ratio of total Muslims selected for the job has seen just an insignificant improvement. The ratio of Muslims selected for the IAS in the total number was just below 3.6 percent as against just about 3.67 percent.

The list of 734 candidates includes 286 General (including 12 Physically Challenged candidates), 266 Other Backward Classes (including 05 physically challenged candidates), 128 Scheduled Castes (including 05 physically challenged candidates) and 54 Scheduled Tribes candidates.

The Indian Muslim community has a paltry representation in the bureaucracy and police. Their representation in the Indian Civil Service is just around 3 percent, around 1.8 percent in foreign service and only 4 percent in the Indian Police Service.
