The State Government had undertaken a survey of madarasas in the State. Since, in August 2022 it came to light that sexual abuse and violation of child rights were being committed in madarasas. The Samajwadi Party had opposed the survey.
If there are so many illegal madarasas in one District, it is better not to think about how many there are in the State and the entire Country.
