UPSC mains results out; 30 Muslims in the list of successful candidates

Based on the results of the written part of Civil Services (Main) Examination, 2012 held by the Union Public Service Commission in October, 2012 and the interviews  

Mumbai: Among the 30 Muslims who have been recommended for Civil Services by the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) based on the exams held in October, 2012 and the interviews for Personality Test held in March-April, 2013, 07 students are from Zakat Foundation of India (ZFI).


Zakat Foundation of India (ZFI) is a New Delhi based NGO which provides free training to the Muslim students.


They are Waseem Akram (Rank 183), Mazid Khan (Rank 394), Naveed Trumboo (rank 386), Ansari Shakeel Ahmed (Rank 507), Anees C (Rank 525), Yasser Arafat F A (Rank 612) and Moona Yasmin (rank 760).


One of the students from Haj Committee's free coaching centre Ansari Shakeel Ahmed is also in the list of the successful candidates. He secured a rank of 503. He is from Nandurbar district of Maharashtra's tribal belt.


Ansari is the second student from Haj Committee who has cracked the civil services exams. Last year, Salman Taj of Sholapur had cleared the UPSC exams.


The selected candidates have been recommended for various posts which include Indian Administrative Service, Indian Foreign Service, Indian Police Service and Central Services.

The performance of successful Muslim candidates is almost same in numbers if compared with the results of last few years. In 2009, a total of 31 Muslims were in the list of 791 successful candidates. Though percentage wise it shows a marginal decline. 


Likewise, in 2010 among the 875 successful candidates 21 were Muslims with Dr. Shah Faisal of Kashmir topping the exam at the national level.


Similarly in 2011, 31 Muslims were among the 920 successful candidates whereas in 2012 too 30 Muslims were selected for the civil services.


The results are particularly worrisome for the community as there are quite a few organisations which are running campaigns at different level to increase the representation of Muslims in the civil services.


Compare to their population in the country which is about 13-14%, only about 02% are in the civil services.
