Most of the madarasas are often breeding grounds for terrorists, and now, it is revealed that rioters are also from such madarasas. Therefore, nationalists should demand withdrawal of Central Government subsidy to the madarasas.
Lucknow (UP) – Uttar Pradesh Police on 23rd December branded some rioters in Muzaffarnagar as ‘outsiders’ from Kargil, Leh and Bhopal, a day after accusing people from Malda and Kashmir of resorting to violence in Lucknow on 19th December.
The Police are yet to identify the 60 to 70 people from Kashmir who allegedly rioted in Lucknow. Samaypal Atri, Civil Lines Station House Officer in Muzaffarnagar, told reporters that of the 72 people arrested in the District for the violence – of whom 40 were students of the Saadat Madarasa – 12 were from Kargil, Leh and Bhopal.
“All the rioters from outside Uttar Pradesh were arrested with bricks in their hands”, Atri said. He said that among them were Hussain Ali of Barkhera in Bhopal and Mohammad Ali of Thang Shanku in Kargil. He named another six ‘outsiders’ who he said were from the Saadat Madarasa but did not mention their home addresses.
A madarasa teacher, who did not want to be identified said, “For five decades, students from across the country have been studying here before joining Aligarh Muslim University, Darul Uloom Deoband in Saharanpur or the Nadwatul Ulama in Lucknow for higher education. Obviously, some of the 40 arrested students would be from outside the State”.
