Hyderabad: Expressing concern over 'increasing judicial activism,' All India Majilis-E-Itihadul Muslimeen (AIMM) Floor leader Akbaruddin Owaisi today opined that going by the judicial activism, even welfare schemes meant for the Muslim minorities would be struck down by courts.
Participating in the debate on demands for grants for Minorities welfare, he expressed fear that ''even welfare schemes meant for minorities will be struck down by courts while hearing petitions filed by activists of Sangh Parivar organisations.''
Even as Deputy Speaker N Manohar, who was in the Chair, advised him to be careful in the choice of words while speaking on judiciary, the AIMIM leader asserted that he was well within his rights to make observations on the functioning of judiciary.
He feared that ''minorities will be rendered second grade citizens, going by the judicial pronouncements in the country.''
Owaisi expressed dissatisfaction over the High Court quashing the state law on four per cent reservation for backward among Muslims and asked when there could be reservation for minorities in Karnataka and Kerala, why not in Andhra Pradesh. When reservation for 46 per cent of people could continue, how four per cent reservation for backward among Muslims alone could lead to religious conversions, he asked.
''We are not bothered what steps the State Government will take. The Government, which is claiming itself to be the champion of Muslims, should ensure reservation for backward among Muslims at any cost,'' he said.
