Note: This is an old news item but it is relevant. Both communities should be mindful of each others’ sensitivities and realize that they can prosper in an environment of mutual trust, respect and harmony.

HASSAN, Karnataka: Minister for Wakf and Minorities Welfare Mumtaz Ali Khan has
called upon Muslims in the State not to oppose the Bill banning cow
slaughter.

The Minister said he too would not oppose the Bill as only 30 per cent
of Muslims consumed beef. Moreover, the Bharatiya Janata Party
Government was committed to improve the lot of the minorities, even
though they had been used as vote-bank by the Opposition, he said.

Speaking to presspersons here on Wednesday, Dr. Khan said the State
Government was committed to providing financial assistance to all
those who stood to lose their livelihood following the Government’s
decision on the ban. The Minister said that Chief Minister B.S.
Yeddyurappa would increase the allocation for minorities welfare from
Rs. 186 crore to Rs. 300 crore. The funds would be used for the
overall development of minorities in the State, he said. The literacy
rate among Muslims would also be increased to help them secure
employment, he said.
