Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma statement on madrasas: Hub of terror

Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma said that madrasas are being used as training hubs of terrorists. He has said that instead of education, terror training is being given in these madrasas. Sarma said that so far two such madrasas have been demolished in Assam.
Recently a private madrasa was demolished in the Barpeta district of Assam. According to the police, the madrasa was built on government land and terrorists were being trained here. Two accused were also arrested in this case. CM Sarma said, 'Investigation has come to know that a training camp of Al Qaeda was going on in the madrasa. There was no education here.
In Assam's Morigaon district, on August 4, the administration took action for the first time on allegations of connection to Sarullah Bangla and the AQIS organization. The administration first arrested its operator Mustafa, then his private madrasa was demolished by a bulldozer.
The Assam government stopped giving grants to madrassas in 2020. Himanta was the education minister of the state at that time. After this decision, around 800 madrasas in the state were closed. However, more than 1000 private madrasas are still running. They are operated by All Assam Tanzeem Madaris Koumia.
In a program in Delhi on May 23, Himanta said that as long as there are madrasas in the country, children will not be able to think of becoming engineers and doctors. Sarma had said during this time that if you want to give education related to religion to children, then give it at home, for that it is not necessary to have a madrasa.
