UPSC Coaching: Only 11 Muslims among 587 appeared for entrance test

Malegaon: Despite persistent efforts by the government and non-government organisations to create awareness among the Muslims in India about the Civil Services, only 11 students from the community appeared for the UPSC coaching entrance test conducted by Pune University.

 

According to the media reports, Pune University had invited applications from the aspiring students for its UPSC Coaching Centre and later called them for the entrance test. A total of 587 students from different parts finally turned up for the entrance test.

 

Ironically, among the 587 students who appeared for the test, only 11 are Muslims - a figure that has shocked those running the campaign among the community about the importance of civil services. For, the Muslims in India, after the release of the Sachar Committee Report, which noted that the poor representation of Muslims in civil services is one of the many reasons for their backwardness, worked hard to create awareness. Organisations like Hamdard Delhi and Hajj Committee of India established their own coaching centres.

 

Hamdard Delhi in fact created the history in 2010 when Dr Shah Faisal, one of its students, topped the list of the successful candidates for the year - only the second Indian Muslim to do so. After his brilliant performance, Shah Faesal addressed the students at any places and urged them to join the civil services.

 

Against this backdrop, poor representation of the Muslim students in the Pune University UPSC Coaching centre entrance test is shocking.

 

Pune University is one of the leading universities in India and its UPSC Coaching Centre is regarded as one of the best in the country. The centre has a limited capacity and the university coaches them for the coveted civil services exams free of cost.
