Muslim representation in Lok Sabha goes down

GK CORRESPONDENT

Srinagar, May 18: Muslim representation in the current Lok Sabha would be lower as compared to 2004 and 1999. With a countrywide population of 13.4 per cent as per 2001 census, the Muslim representation in Lok Sabha is just 5 per cent with 28 MPs in a House of 543.

While 32 Muslim candidates were elected in 1999 and 35 in 2004, only 28 have made it this year. The only distinction the Muslims have achieved in the recent elections is that the youngest parliamentarian would be 26-year-old Muhammad Hamidullah Sayeed, son of late P M Sayeed, who won from Lakshadweep as a Congress nominee. In the new Lok Sabha, Congress has the highest number of 11 Muslim MPs followed by three each from National Conference and Bahujan Samaj Party. Indian Union Muslim League and Trinamool Congress have two Muslim MPs each. BJP, JDU, DMK, CPI, AIMIM and AUDF have one each Muslim MP while one Independent Muslim candidate has been elected from Ladakh.

Kalyan Singh factor seems to have dented Samjawadi Party’s support base among the Muslims in Uttar Pradesh as Mulayam Singh Yadav’s party has not been able to send any Muslim member to the Lok Sabha, as compared to a tally of seven in 2004.

While UP and West Bengal have elected the highest number of six Muslim MPs each followed by Jammu & Kashmir with four, Kerala and Bihar have got three each, Tamil Nadu and Assam two each and one each has got elected from Andhra Pradesh and Lakshadweep.

In 2004 polls, the highest number of 10 Muslim candidates were elected from UP, five from West Bengal, four from Bihar, three from Jammu & Kashmir, two each from AP, Assam, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and one each from Jharkhand and Maharashtra.

Among the prominent Muslims elected to the Lok Sabha this year are senior Congress leader Salman Khurshid, former J&K chief minister Dr Farooq Abdullah, former cricketer Muhammad Azhar-ud-Din, AIMIM chief Assad-ud-Din Owaisi, former minister of state for External Affairs E. Ahmad, former head of Minority Commission Zafar Ali Naqvi, BJP’s Sayed Shahnawaz and perfume trader-turned-millionaire Badruddin Ajmal from Assam.

In a record of sorts, Assad-ud-Din Owaisi has successfully retained the prestigious Hyderabad parliamentary constituency for the sixth consecutive term with his All India Majlis Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen winning seven seats in the AP assembly elections that were held simultaneously with the Lok Sabha polls.

    Oh! What a gr8 man. HiS PARTY MLAs attacked Taslima Nasrin in Hyderabad. And this gentleman defended the attack and violence as right. He has threatened election officials/DIG during current elections.
    The PM Dr.Manmohan Singh should make him the Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minister.
