THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Leaders of Muslim organizations have sent a letter to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan asking govt to file an appeal against the High Court order on minority scholarships. The letter demands the community should get 100 percent of the benefits it deserves. It also called for the publication of a white paper outlining government benefits for different categories.

"The real facts of the false propaganda that the government is distributing crores of rupees in salaries and other benefits to madrassa teachers should be told". The letter also called for legal action against those carrying out communal propaganda.

Recently, a bench headed by the Chief Justice quashed a government order allocating 80 per cent scholarships under the state government to Muslim minorities and 20 per cent to backward Christian communities. The 2015 order was found to be discriminatory and unconstitutional. The court asked the state government to re-determine the ratio on the basis of population.
