The Sachar Committee report had highlighted the poor condition of muslim communities across India. The community's share in the realms of education, jobs and business is vastly below its presence in the overall population. Number of people from the community living below the poverty line is above the national average. So goes the woe list.
Sachar Committee Report revealed that Muslims were one of the most economically backward and socially disadvantaged communities, nothing much has been done to address the development deficits of this community.
The report of this Committee laid to rest this long-orchestrated political untruth, by demonstrating that on most socio-economic indicators, the average condition of Muslims in India was comparable to or even worse than the country's acknowledged, historically most disadvantaged communities, the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes.
It found poverty to be the main barrier to education among Muslims, as little children are expected to work to support the family, rather than study. There are not many good quality government schools in Muslim areas, and fewer residential hostels and exclusive girls' schools. Promises To Keep & If We Walk Together
