Patna, Dec 7: The All India Qaumi Tanzeem (AIQT) has urged Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh to ensure that all sections of the society, including minorities, should not be subjected to discrimination and there should not be two sets of laws.

An AIQT release here yesterday stated that a delegation, led by its founder president and MP Tariq Anwar, called on the Prime Minister and advocated that there should not be two sets of laws for the different sections of the society and the minorities should not be discriminated against.

The delegation also emphasised on the need for submission of the Librahan commission report as well as initiation of action on the Sri Krishna Commission Report to give justice to the victims of Meerut and Malyana.

The team included AIQT general secretary Prof Akhtarul Wasey, its Maharashtra unit presidents Munaf Hakim and Mumbai incharge Misbah Alam.

It suggested to constitute a committee, headed by the Prime Minister, to review the implementation of Sachar committee report and the 15-point programme for the minorities.

The delegation also asked for the tabling of Justice Ranganath Mishra's report in Parliament so that a full debate might take place to enable the government to evolve a consensus on the issue.

Mr Anwar demanded reservation for the Muslims according to their number and dalit Muslims to be given the same opportunities and benefits as enjoyed by dalit Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs and equal policy for compensation to the riot victims.

Later, the delegation said the Prime Minister had assured them of providing equal opportunities and justice to all sections of the society, including minorities.

Prof Wasey also urged Dr Singh to clear all legal hurdles in ensuring full fledged minority character to the Aligarh Muslim University and Jamia Millia Islamia.
