Madrassas encourge students to join terrorist ranks: Shia body

Thursday, January 11, 2018

Lucknow: The Shia Central Waqf Board has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to shut down madrassas in the country, alleging that education imparted in these Islamic schools encouraged students to join terrorist ranks.

In a letter to the prime miniter, the Shia body demanded that madrassas be replaced by schools affiliated to the CBSE or the ICSE which will offer students an optional subject of Islamic education.

The Board suggested that all madrassa boards should be dissolved.

The Shia Central Waqf Board chairman, Waseem Rizvi, claimed that most of the madrassas in the country are not recognised and the Muslim students studying in such institutions are moving towards unemployment.

He claimed that these madrassas were mushrooming in almost every city, town and village and were providing "misplaced and misconceived religious education".

He alleged that funds to run the madrassas were also coming from Pakistan and Bangladesh and that even some terror outfits were assisting them.

Reacting to it, All India Muslim Personal Law Board spokeman Khalilur Rehman Sajjad Nomani said madarssas had played a key role in the freedom movement and by raising questions on these schools, Rizvi was insulting them.

However, Rizvi said that madrassas should be replaced by schools that are affiliated to the CBSE or the ICSE and they should allow non-Muslim students too.

"These schools should be affiliated to CBSE, ICSE, and allow non-Muslim students. Religious education should be made optional. I have written to the PM and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in this regard," he said in a tweet.
