Ayush Ministry rejects RTI reply on recruitment of Muslims
The AYUSH Ministry on Saturday rejected as “fabricated and mischievous misinformation” an RTI reply, claiming that the government does not recruit Muslims in the Ministry as a policy.
The Ministry condemned the “misreporting”, which it claimed was aimed at causing “chasm” between different sections of society and promoting disharmony and mistrust with ulterior motives.
“The Ministry of AYUSH has noted with anguish certain mischievous misinformation being spread by certain sections of media and social media, quoting a reply to an RTI by mentioning a fabricated draft as Annexure I to that letter, which has never been issued by the Ministry of AYUSH or any of its agencies,” the Ministry said.
“The Ministry strongly condemns this piece of misreporting, aimed at causing chasm between different sections of society and promoting disharmony and mistrust with ulterior motives,” it said.
Stating the RTI reply given by the Central Council for Research in Yoga and Naturopathy, the Ministry said, it never replied that as per a policy, no Muslim candidate was invited.
