New Delhi, June 1: The UPSC Results 2016 was released on Wednesday and for the first time records of several years were broken, as 50 Muslims this year cleared the prestigious examination for the top position of Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Foreign Services (IFS) and India Police Services (IPS). But this year records of past several years were broken as nine out of 50 Muslims who cleared IAS exams secured their position in top 100 ranks.

These nine toppers include, Bilal Mohiuddin Bhat from Kashmir who secured 10th position, Muzammil Khan (22nd rank), Shaikh Tanveer Asif (25th rank), Hamna Mariyam (28th rank), Zaffar Iqbal (39th rank), Rizwan Basha Shaikh (48th rank), Sheikh Abdul Rahman (62nd rank), Arif Ahsan (74th rank) and Syed Fakhruddin Hamid (86th rank).

Out of total 1,099 successful candidates in the final list of the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) examinations, 50 Muslims have made it to this year’s result, with Bilal Mohiuddin on 10th rank. The number of Muslim candidates this year has eventually increased than last few years.

In 2016, 36 Muslims had cleared the prestigious exams, while the number stood at 38 in 2015, 34 in 2014 and 30 in 2013. The increase in the number is a positive sign for the Muslim community.

The selected UPSC candidates are recommended for various high-level government posts which include IAS, IFS and IPS and several other allied services.

In India, Muslims comprise 13.4 per cent of the total population but they are dismally represented in the top government services, often due to lack of education and unavailability of resources. Some reports suggest that the representation of Muslims are only 2 per cent in the civil services.

On Wednesday evening, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) declared the final result of the 2016 civil services examinations and like the previous year, this year too a woman Nandini KR, emerged as a topper. Others who secured their position in the top five lists are Anmol Sher Singh, Gopala Krishna, Saumya Pandey and Abhilash Mishra.
