Madrassas encourge students to join terrorist ranks: Shia body chairman

Madrassas encourge students to join terrorist ranks: Shia body chairman

The Shia Board has also demanded that madrassas be replaced by schools affiliated to CBSE or the ICSE that will offer students an optional subject of Islamic education.

"I have written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath about the matter", Rizwi told the news agency. "I have written to the Prime Minister and Chief Ministers, Chief Secretaries of all the starts and Union Territories and Maharashtra government has already ordered high level probe after receipt of my letter", claimed Waseem Rizvi here on Tuesday.

Accusing Razvi of insulting the intuitions of religious education, Frinagi Mahali claimed that there was no issue of lagging behind in advance education.

"At the same time, Mullas are using these madrasas as money minting machines for they get huge donations from overseas and also from some terror outfits in the name of religious education", Rizvi has said adding that thus they do no good to the society but add to unemployment in the country.

The letter cites two primary reasons to justify the demand of closing the madrasas.

CM Balochistan Sanaullah Zehri resigns following PM's advice
Balochistan Governor Muhammad Khan Achakzai has accepted the resignation, Express News reported on Tuesday. We will surely approach Sanaullah Zehri for his vote for the election of the new chief minister.

However, Rizvi's proposal has drawn sharp reaction from the community itself. "How many Madrasas have produced engineers, doctors, IAS officers?"

Asaduddin Owaisi, president of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, called the Shia Board chairman a "buffoon" and an opportunist.

Speaking to, Owaisi added Rizvi had sold his soul to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). "It will make our country even stronger", said Rizvi.

He also challenged Rizvi to show one madrasa where such teachings are imparted.

The Shia Waqf Board had said that all madrassas being run on Waqf properties would be shut down after as many as 51 girls were rescued on December 30 in a raid on a madrassa in Uttar Pradesh.
