Khurshid's remarks: Poll panel seeks president's intervention

Raipur: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Sunday termed union Law Minister Salman Khurshid's remarks on reservations for backward Muslims "unacceptable" and threatened a nation-wide campaign against the idea.

"Any reservation for Muslims as it has been proposed recently in Uttar Pradesh's poll campaign is unacceptable for Hindus. Giving reservations based on religion is also unconstitutional," VHP leader Praveen Togadia told reporters here.

"Some people want to divide nation in the name of Muslim reservations. This is all happening for the sake of vote bank politics. We will launch a nationwide campaign against such a move," he said.

Khurshid has sparked controversy recently in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh and also angered the Election Commission while proposing nine percent quota to minorities, including backward Muslims, within 27 percent reservation for Other Backward Classes (OBCs) if the Congress is voted to power in Uttar Pradesh.
