There is little cheer for the Muslim community from the Civil Services results. Of the 910 candidates who were recommended for appointment, there are only 30 Muslims. (A list is given below. It might be possible that a few names have been missed and few others might have been included there due to mistaken identity.) Success ratio works out to merely three per cent. Significantly, while
no one from the civil services coaching centres at Aligarh Muslim University and the Jamia Millia Islamia could clear the exam, four candidates from Zakat Foundation of India and one from the Haj Committee of India got through. There are six Muslims from the Kashmir Valley this year, an indication that more youth from the Valley are getting attracted to the central services. Syed Abid Rashid is listed at 23. He had competed in 2010 too and had been placed 180th and was awarded an IPS. He is the topmost among the Muslim
candidates this year. Ms. Sehrish Asghar who studied medicine had already emerged successful in the Kashmir Administrative Services last year. She is the second Muslim girl to qualify for IAS from the State. She is daughter of former KAS officer Syed Asghar who is now a PDP MLC in the Kashmir legislature. In an interview with Deccan Herald of Bangalore, Sehrish said women possess the same intelligence as the men and girls aspiring to enter the civil services should not listen to those who prevent them from entering them. Bashir Ahmed Bhat (434) hails from North Kashmir’s Sopore town and is son of a shopkeeper. He had studied Veterinary Science. Another candidate who has cracked the UPSC this year is Qazi Salman Ibrahim who is from an area near LoC. Yet other successful candidates from the Valley are Inamul Haq Mengnoo, an orthopaedic doctor from South Kashmir’s Shopian district and Manazir Jeelani Samoon of Gurrez region of North Kashmir’s Bandipore. In a press note, the Crescent Academy, Delhi claimed that 15 of its candidates were among the list of the ones chosen for the civil services. Repeated emails and even a phone call to its director Iqbal Khan to provide the name, did not elicit any response. Salmantaj, one of the trainee of the Haj Committee of India’s IAS and Allied Services Coaching and Guidance Cell also cleared the civil services exam this year. Till almost two years ago, appearing for the IAS examination was a distant dream for Salmantaj. The only desire the Solapur native nurtured was to get a  job in Mumbai and  support his peasant family back home. But today, Salmantaj, who gave the exam in 2011, has secured the 466th rank. Though he is eligible for a posting in the Indian Police Service and the Indian Revenue Services, he is planning to attempt the exam at least another five times, to land a good posting in the IAS. Mohammad Imteyaz Alam hails from Bastawara village of the Darbhanga district in Bihar. Having done his MBA, he had been on a job in Saudi Arabia. He came back to put in efforts to enter the civil services and was placed on 49th position. Mohd. Sharique Badar who has been placed 48th in the list of successful candidates hails from Jamnagar village of Rajmahal in Jharkhand. He did his B.Sc. from Hindu College, Delhi. He is son of Prof. Badruddin Shabnam in a college under Bhagalpur University.
