Why only Muslim heads for minorities' panel, asks PIL 7.4.2017 deccanherald.com
A PIL has been filed challenging the appointment of only persons belonging to the Muslim community to head the Karnataka State Minorities Commission since its inception in 1983.

The petitioner Vinod B, an advocate, has contended that Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Zoroastrians (Parsis) and Jains are identified as minorities. But since the inception of the commission, only Muslims are being appointed as chairpersons.

The petitioner has sought quashing of the appointment of Balkhees Banu as the chairperson of the commission arguing that it is in violation of Article 16 (Equality of opportunity in matters of public employment) of the Constitution of India. A division bench headed by Chief Justice S K Mukherjee directed the petitioner to give a representation to the Principal Secretary, Minority Welfare Department, in the matter.
