Saying that it was doing so as part of its implementation of the Sachar Committee’s recommendations, the Rajasthan government has collected data on Muslim employees in the state’s health department and sent it to the Centre.

In a letter dated November 30, the State Directorate of Medical, Health and Family Welfare Services had sought information on all Muslim employees posted across the state, at all sub-centres, public health centres and community health centres. The letter, addressed to all the chief medical and health officers (CMHOs) across the state, asked for personal details of these employees.

Referring to an order sent by “Deputy Secretary, Union Health Ministry”, on November 20, the letter, signed by B L Saini, joint director, administration, of the state directorate, said: “In the pro forma attached with the letter, furnish information of Muslim employees posted at sub-centres, public health centres (PHCs) and community health centres (CHCs) under your jurisdiction, and ensure that it is mailed immediately to the departmental email id…”

The letter added that this information would be sent to the central government.

When contacted, Saini told The Indian Express: “The Government of India had recently asked every state to collect details of employees from the minority community so that welfare schemes, as per the Sachar Committee’s recommendations, can be implemented.”

He added that the information pertained to the employees’ place of posting and retirement date. “The information was compiled and sent to the Government of India as per the instructions that we received,” said Saini.

      And while asking for such data, is modi government collecting such data from central government establishment? Above all, modi government must tell us motive, purpose and objective of such a move. And objective should not be floating but should be smart.

        Good. Now this modi government started to collect discriminatory data for muslims only. Why not for hindu or other employees. And modi must answer to 125 cror people what is the purpose of collecting data for only one religion and not for other religions. Modijee, have ur government asked same data to all states and union teroterirs or only to rajastan government? And if only for rajastan government, why? What is the motive behind such collection? Or rajastan govt has done it keeping it in the view of next elections in 2018
