Appeal to Muslims and other
Deprived Groups to form Local Census Committees in All Villages & Mohallas
Fully in Census Phase II on Population Enumeration between February 9 & 28,
New Delhi: 25 January 2011, Mr Syed Shahabuddin,
President All India Muslim Majlis-e- Mushawarat, has issued the following
Phase II of the Census shall enumerate Population to
produce the socio-economic demographic profile of the country. For this
enumeration the Census Commissioner has framed a Schedule of Questions to be
asked of all households. The results of this enumeration will have a direct
bearing on the policies, development programs & financial allocations at
every level for the next decade.
The enumerator will visit every household
between 9 & 28 February, 2011 and speak to the heads of the households, and
some other members, if necessary and record replies separately,
for each household.
The Schedule has many questions including a question on
Religion and another on Language and also on Age, Education, Marital Status and
Physical Disability etc.
considers it imperative that all households participate fully in the
Enumeration. All Muslims should indicate Islam as their religion and their mother tongue as
their Language. Those, whose mother tongue is Urdu, specially in northern
states should indicate Urdu, not any local dialect
they may speak at home.
appeals to the educated youth among Muslims and all other deprived groups to
form small Census committees in every mohalla and village which should
accompany the enumerators from household to household & from family to
family, to ensure that enumeration is universal and nobody is left out and that
the replies by the households are recorded correctly.
