A number of unrecognised madarasas functioning along the Uttar Pradesh-Nepal border ! 

Uttar Pradesh Govt orders the investigation !

Funding for the madarasas will be investigated !

Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) – It has been found that a large number of illegal madarasas are on the Nepal border. The Yogi Adityanath Government has ordered an investigation into this matter. The Uttar Pradesh Government has ordered the district magistrates in the districts bordering Nepal to conduct a probe into the source of funding of those unrecognised madarasas that have declared zakat (money from the charity) and donations as their primary source of funds to run their institutions. But survey teams found that people living in these areas are poor and not able to give zakat and donations. Such madarasas have been identified and directions have been issued for rechecking their source of funding.

These madarasas are not revealing the names of those who give them zakat and donations,” said Cabinet Minister for Minority Welfare, Muslim Waqf and Haj Dharmpal Singh. Then how do these madarasas function here ? Who is funding them ? We are inquiring into this matter. These madarasas have not given information about their donors. There are many madarasas that are getting funding from outside. It appears these madarasas are getting funds from outside. Why someone from outside will fund them ? We do not want our children to get misused. There are possibilities for it. Hence, we are alert.

Editorial viewpoint

Were the Government’s administration, Police, and Security agencies sleeping while these illegal madarasas were being built ?
