The Anti-Secular Reservations At AMU

The proposed 50% reservations for Muslims at Aligarh Muslim University are a profound mistake by India's so-called "secular" polity with which we are increasingly dissapointed.

In America's debate over affirmative action, someone once called similar quotas for American minorities soft bigotry of lowered expectations. We think the same applies to the cynical ghettoization of minorities in India -- in the name of their "advancement".

We hope that far-sighted Indian Muslims will join their truly-secular compatriots in condemning this terrible policy.
