Karnataka asks education department to submit report on madrasas' activities: Sources

Bengaluru, Sep 30 (IANS): The Karnataka government on Friday directed the education department to submit a report on the activities of madrasas in the state, stirring a controversy.

The education department has taken up the exercise amid the demands to ban madrasas in the state by Hindu organisations, according to the sources.

It has been alleged that suspicious activities are going on in madrasas.

The government has asked the department to submit report about 960 madrasas in the state.

A committee has been formed under the leadership of the Commissioner of the education department, which will give comprehensive report on the activities of the madrasas.

BJP insiders said that after the submission of the report, a decision would be made on whether the madrasas should be banned or these should be brought under the jurisdiction of the education department.

The BJP insiders said that the ruling BJP in Karnataka is contemplating the action on madrasas on the lines of the Uttar Pradesh government in connection with madrasas.

    most of the people knows what exactly being teaches in the madras, most of the madrasas has cctv and you can ask the footage, also inside the masjids , cctv has been provided in most of the masjids 24x7 without any interruption, in the madrasas, the holy Quran content has to be teached, and hence it is better to check with the teacher who is teaching them and collect the information, and un necessary involvement in the madras wont solve any issues. only pure Quran has to be teached and nothing other than this should not be teaches over there. and like masjid, madrasas also a holy place indeed. hence therefore i hope who ever read this will clearly understand what it is. we do not know what report they want from the madrasas. any government officials concerned can see the madrasas how it is being controlled through the teachers. what islam explains, the same has to be teached to the children and the children has to be brought up with respect and lear the religion issues only. no politics or any unwanted things should not be teached over there, and the commitee also should have been given instruction to the teachers.

    This is not like banning PFI or any other organization. If you try to ban, then you will know how the protest will turn out. Coz if you ban our religious learning place then our purpose of coming to this world is being stopped, so the only thing left will be do or die.

    Never thought that they would stoop down to this level merely for the sake of few votes.. A deliberate attempt to divide further and widen communal harmony.. Worst days for both the people to face ahead which might impact on economy....
