The Justice Rajinder Sachar Committee, set up to study social, economic and educational status of the Muslim community, will submit its report to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday.

The Committee, earlier scheduled to give its report by October 31, was given time till November 30 to submit its findings.

There has been a lot of debate on the issue of reservation for Muslims after reports that the Committee has found that representation of the community in various government jobs is dismal, and that it is way behind even Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes in social, education and health indices.

The Committee, set up by the Prime Minister, is reported to have recommended caste-based and not religion-based reservation for the community.

However, the Committee has been non-committal on media reports.
