This has reference to the editorial, “Promising start” (Sept. 7), on the government’s response to the recommendations of the Rajinder Sachar Committee. Besides creating an Equal Opportunity Commission and a diversity index, it should implement the other recommendations too to bring Muslims on a par with the socially and economically advanced communities.

Implementation of the Sachar Committee recommendations will surely help to reduce deprivation and alienation among Muslims. If the bureaucracy cooperates, the national commitment can be effectively fulfilled.
