Related News New government must realise that Muslims don’t need preferential treatment They want equal chances Recently the six-year-old granddaughter of a friend returned from school in tears Some of her classmates had asked her if she was a Muslim and then commented “Humme mussalmaan se bahut darr lagta hai” These innocent guileless voices most poignantly reflect the pathological distrust and incomprehension that separates the two communities — an antipathy embedded in the tortured history of the subcontinent Narendra Modi-baiters ceaselessly pillory the prime minister designate for his alleged inaction in 2002 overlooking the more disturbing phenomenon of thousands of people spilling onto the streets of Gujarat following the horrific Godhra train burning and that mass mobilisation was provoked not by love but visceral hate So long as the governing class remains inured to this subtext of communal antipathy our country will continue to be a tinderbox of communal flare-ups and social discord Curiously nobody seems alarmed about home ministry data that there has been a 25 per cent increase in communal incidents in 2013 compared to 2012 It is axiomatic that the communalism of one group feeds on the communalism of the other but only majority communalism can alter the nature of the Indian polity All too often we are reminded that in time of communal strife the instruments of state collude with the majority — Gopalgarh Dhule and Muzaffarnagar are recent examples It is also undeniable that the poor on both sides of the communal divide are savaged by riots even as the political class calculates how best to capitalise on each grisly event Minorities for their own sake have necessarily to show greater social responsibility than others because in our fractured society similar actions and behaviour are viewed through different prisms The rant of a Pravin Togadia is viewed as an aberration in an otherwise liberal Hindu ethos whereas the hate-mongering of an Imran Masood reinforces the stereotype of the fanatical intolerant Muslim Every intemperate statement by a Muslim increases the social estrangement of the community Realism demands a radical transformation in the agenda for the Muslim community The new government must eschew the phoney secularism of the earlier dispensation which was guilty of allegedly “secular” actions that have only exacerbated the alienation of Muslims The announcement that the Centre would provide legal assistance to those jailed on “doubtful charges” in terror cases; the communal violence bill which is perceived as an instrument of discrimination against the majority community; the ill-conceived equal opportunities commission which envisages protection of only minority interests; the aborted proposal to earmark a 45 per cent quota for minorities within the 27 per cent OBC quota — these vote bank enticements have further polarised an already divided society Unfortunately the major focus of the Muslim leadership is centred on peripheral demands like reservation in government jobs institutions of higher learning bank loans Haj subsidy etc For any job in the organised sector the minimum requirement is high school pass and considering that only 13 per cent of Muslims are educated beyond middle school the clamour for reservation seems elitist The Haj subsidy is an insult to the poor Muslim Last year those who went on the Haj pilgrimage utilising the so-called subsidy had to pay Rs 2 lakh each to make the trip The government should scrap this un-Islamic subsidy which is actually in place only for supplementing the expenses of well-off Muslims and for boosting the revenues of Air India By myopically viewing electoral politics as the sole determinant of group interests in society Muslim leaders with their exclusionary vision are corroding inter-community relations and further isolating Muslims Their recent call to the community to vote en bloc provided justification for a matching appeal for Hindu consolidation which is precisely what Hindu organisations have done In Bihar even Nitish Kumar’s worst critics acknowledge that his government has done remarkable work for the Muslims and yet they flocked en masse to the RJD The moral of the story is that you do not have to do anything for the community as you can win their allegiance by keeping their fears alive Muslims need to send a message to the government that they do not want preferential but only equal treatment Building social solidarity across communities has to be the predominant concern Sociologists have observed that targeted programmes meant for only a particular section are poorly implemented especially if the preferential treatment is for a group that is traditionally a victim of majoritarian prejudice Targeted programmes for Muslims are not only poorly implemented but increase their alienation and result in discrimination against them in other spheres Most importantly the new government must seriously address the problem of entrenched institutionalised injustice against minorities in certain spheres Instead of meaningless gestures of “appeasement” the government should ensure a level playing field in access to social benefits the job market before the law A recent study by the Institute of Objective Studies shows that even in Delhi there is palpable discrimination against Muslim-majority areas in the provision of basic civic amenities by government agencies Health and education are the most critical requirements for ensuring equal participation in growth and development but here again Muslim-dominant areas are at a disadvantage All that Muslims want is a system that ensures equal opportunity — for education for health and for livelihood These are the issues that the new government

reforms that won India its independence from Nehru in 1991 Related News It is hogwash to say that Manmohan Singh was the architect of the reforms that won India its independence from Nehru in 1991 Forget “desi” paternity The Indian reform process sprang from the emphatically foreign loins of IMF mandarins They imposed conditions on India in exchange for an emergency loan of $22 billion secured by 47 tonnes of gold reserves which had to be hauled to the UK Another $600 million was secured by pledging 20 tonnes to the Union Bank of Switzerland Bharat wasn’t always “mahaan” Narasimha Rao unveiled some reforms a few hours before Singh’s maiden budget in Parliament But the reason Singh was given “architect” status (as Swaminathan Aiyar has argued in a recent blog) was that he’d be the nerdy fall guy if things went awry As a respected technocrat with no political base there’d be little opposition to Singh’s recommendations Share This Article Related Article By June 1991 when Chandra Shekhar was leading a caretaker government with Yashwant Sinha as finance minister India’s pyjamas were around its ankles: Foreign reserves had dipped to $600 million just enough to cover three weeks of imports The government sought emergency help from multilateral agencies and international banks and eventually raised $66 billion The rupee was devalued by 57 per cent in three days That year was not the first time India experienced a balance of payments crisis The “forex” kitty India inherited at Independence had been squandered by 1956 Jawaharlal Nehru focused on import-dependent heavy industry and India’s food import bill soared As would become characteristic of Indian policy India responded by devaluing the rupee and imposing sharp restrictions on imports while doing diddly squat to promote exports India became a basket case the world’s greatest recipient of foreign aid After the righteous war with Pakistan in 1971 India became a Soviet client-state Indira Gandhi and Leonid Brezhnev signed treaties covering defence food and energy — to be transacted in rubles thereby mitigating India’s hard currency horrors But India continued to suffer balance of payments problems through the oil shocks of the 1970s and sought help from the IMF in 1981 soon after Mrs G returned to power However this time was different Having learnt from the bedraggled 1960s India approached the IMF before another severe crisis erupted and volunteered its own reforms These weren’t earthshattering but this was the first such approach made by a developing country to the IMF The Reagan administration was opposed to the loan but didn’t say no India received the largest loan to date by the IMF to a developing country: $6 billion to be disbursed in three tranches With the Green Revolution and Bombay High India’s food and energy bills were lower The country didn’t need the final tranche of the loan and also repaid the first two loans early However when Rajiv Gandhi came to power India went on an extraordinary debt binge — Rajiv’s greatest legacy — which eventually led to the crisis in 1991 At the time India had the third highest level of external debt after the usual suspects Brazil and Mexico Gracias Rajiv India’s economic reforms have mainly sputtered since then a tale of three steps forward and two back Other than in sectors that didn’t exist before 1991 (such as mobile telephony and IT) the heavy hand of the State still grips most of the economy Narendra Modi has shown few signs of letting go By privatising slivers of State-owned companies and allowing public-private partnerships the government has been able to raise capital from the private sector; but very little real reform has happened after 1996 In most traditional industrial and service sectors government- owned companies dominate India has been fooling itself about both the architect and the extent of its reform programme for 25 years Manmohan Singh has wrongly taken credit for a liberalisation that was half-cocked at its inception and has been quarter-cocked ever since In India entrenched political interests and crony capitalism always win One can only wonder where India
