Newly-elected chief of the seminary Maulana Ghulam Mohammed Vastanvi also said it will be a big challenge for the Congress to implement the recommendations of the Sachar committee which went into socio-economic status of Muslims as some state governments are "causing impediments."

"I support reservation for Muslims. There should be quota (for the community). The representation of Muslims is not adequate in government jobs and other areas. Reservation can take care of that," he told PTI. He said recommendations of the Sachar committee should be implemented for the welfare of the community.
