Jammu, Dec 30: VHP on Friday demanded withdrawal of sub-quota for minorities within the OBC quota saying the move will cause social unrest across the country.

"We oppose and demand scrapping of reservation to Muslims within the 27 per cent OBC quota approved by the Union Cabinet as religion-based reservation is violative of the Constitution. Muslim and Christians should not be given reservation," VHP International General Secretary Dinesh Chander told reporters here on Friday.

"It would divide the society on the basis of caste and religion and cause social unrest in the country. It is dangerous," he said.

The party also sought rejection of the recommendations of the Sachar Commission. The Union Cabinet had ordered a sub-quota of 4.5 per cent for Muslims within the 27 per cent reservation for OBCs.
