Terrorists infiltrating through Bangladesh – A Police officer
Assam DGP Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta said, “Terrorist organisations are slowly trying to target Assam. They are entering the State via Bangladesh. They are trying to provoke the Muslim youth of the State by teaching them about Hadis.
Why doesn’t the Government ban such madarasas even though it has come to light that many madarasas have been used to carry out anti-national activities ?
