"Since last two decades, the representatives of the community are demanding reservation for Muslims in government jobs and removing encroachments from Wakf properties, but our demands have fallen on deaf ears," said Samiti president Mohsin Ahmed.
    
He alleged that the state government had ‘cheated’ Muslims by handing over them a disputed land for construction of a Haj House.
    
Ahmed alleged that ‘despite the assurance given by state minister Arif Naseem Khan before the Legislative Assembly that 83 such properties of Wakf, which are encroached upon will be freed, nothing has happened’.
    
He demanded that reservation be given for Muslims in education and government jobs at par with Marathas.
    
The politically sensitive proposal for giving reservation for Marathas has been pending before the government.
