New Delhi, Jul 5 (UNI) The Supreme Court today refused to permit Andhra Pradesh government to provide 5 per cent reservation for Muslims in admission to educational institutions for the academic year 2006-2007.

A bench, comprising Chief Justice Y K Sabharwal and Justice C K Thakker, declined the prayer made by state of Andhra and Jamait-Ulema-e-Hind seeking a stay against the Supreme Court order dated January 4, 2006 refusing to stay the Andhra Pradesh High Court judgement setting aside the law enacted by the state government to provide five per cent reservation in appointment in government jobs and admission to educational institutions.

The case has already been referred to a five-judge Constitutiona Bench.

The Supreme Court had, however, maintained the limited stay granted by the High Court only to the extent of admissions already made and appointments already made shall not be disturbed.

It may be noted here that the five-judge Bench of the Andhra Pradesh High Court had passed status quo order against the implementation of the impugned Muslim Community Act 2005(AP Act No 21 0f 2005).
