In this list, there is a list of Muslim castes who come under the OBC section. In Muslim society, the castes of Muslims belong to different types of classes and due to which they also get a lot of benefits in the reservation.

Why Muslim OBC Cast List Has Been Released?

A special purpose of releasing the Muslim OBC cast list is that at present elections are coming in some big states of the country, due to which different types of political parties want to save the main issue of reservation.

This OBC cast list comes in handy in doing it on your side.

As we know that like Hindu society, Muslim society is also divided into hundreds of types of castes and if those castes are included on the ground, then a very large population can be included in OBC. And today’s political parties are taking advantage of this.

What will be the benefit for the people who come on the Muslim OBC cast list?

People coming in the Muslim OBC cast list will get two types of benefits-

  1. External Social Benefits
  2. Internal Social Benefits

External social benefits include all those benefits which are given by any government to its citizens on the reservation benefits or those benefits which are given to the Economic Weaker Section, which includes a large number of OBCs. And all those benefits are known as external social benefits.

The intrinsic social benefit includes all the benefits that the Muslim community gives to the people within itself, that is, the Sunni in the Muslim society is also divided into different classes and whoever comes under the Sunni section of the Muslim society.

Those people are eligible for many special benefits which are not Shia society.

People belonging to the Shia section of Muslim society are eligible for those special benefits which are not people of Ahmadi, Hazara, Sunni, Ahlehdis society.

 Similarly, when people belonging to different types of sub-classes join any class, they get the benefit of that class and it is very much in Muslim society.

Is Muslim Caste Being Censused?

No confirmation has been made about this, but if cast censorship is done all over India, then the chances of getting Muslim cast censored will be very high.

At present, there are some states like Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Haryana, Bihar, Rajasthan who want to conduct caste census for the citizens living in their state, and for this, they have also given a writing petition to the honable Prime Minister of India but No any reply has come till now.

On this, the Chief Minister of Bihar state Nitish Kumar had given this statement a few days ago that due to no statement from the Prime Minister, he can get the caste census done in Bihar.

This is the reason that caste census will be conducted for Muslim society also and the rumors being spread will be stopped.

And in the meantime, due to the update of Muslim OBC Cast List 2022, these questions get more weight, because these questions seem to be quite right on this issue.
