Qureshi's assurence to the minorities

05 October 2009

The Chairman of the State Minority Commission Mr. Khusro Qureshi has assured the minorities in the Dakshina Kannada district not to worry too much on the insecurity as the government was trying hard to give them all the security through police and the security agencies in the state.

Mr. Qureshi speaking to the presspersons here today stated that it is true that there were some issues between the two communities, but all that has been more or less based on hearsay, deep inside the society both communities were together and living harmoniously. He said the B.S. Yeddyurppa government had taken so many decisions that would favour the minorities in the state. One of them was the socio-economic and educational development of the minorities.

For the Dakshina Kannada district the Yeddyurappa government had given five times more budget for spending on minority welfare which was unprecedented in the history of the district under any government.

He said he did not believe that two communities are at war in the district, it was only few persons running loose from the law that were creating problems to secure their own ends. He said Mr. Yeddyurappa had assured that all the outstanding issues between the two communities will be sorted out in time and in totality and Dakshina Kannada will be a model district for communal harmony.

Mr. Qureshi said he shared the views expressed by the Chief Minister and wanted the district to be safe for everybody and the BJP government at the state and every official and politician will work for it.

Mr. Qureshi said that the colleges are free to impose their dress codes and everyone of us should try to keep politics and religion away from the field of education. He said this when one of the reporters sought clarification on the Burkah issue that had rocked the district sometime back.
