The BJP Government in Assam closed down all madarasas. Now the Hindus feel that BJP-ruled states including MP and the Central Government should close all madarasas.
Indore (MP) – “All terrorists are created in madrasas. Hence, they must be closed down”, demanded Tourism and Cultural Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Usha Thakur.
Usha Thakur added, “All pupils are equal, but due to the religion based education, hatred and fanaticism are nurtured. All fanatics and terrorists are products of madarasas. Jammu & Kashmir was made a factory of terrorism.
We must link all madarasas alienated from the mainstream with proper education and bring them up to assist social progress. Assam achieved this. Assam closed down all madarasas. Everything that opposes nationalism must be closed down in national interests. Government aid to such organisations must stop. If anyone wishes to impart religious training privately, the Indian Constitution permits it”.
