Guwahati, September 03 (KMS): All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) chief and member of Indian Parliament, Badruddin Ajmal, has urged the Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma, to stop bulldozing madrassas.
Badruddin Ajmal, the member of Lok Sabha (lower house of Indian Parliament) said this while reacting to Bongaigaon district administration’s action of bulldozing Markazul Ma’arif-u-Kariyana Madrassa, a private-run Madrasa, at Kabaitari in the Jogighopa area on Wednesday.
“Such actions are a direct attack on the education of children in the minority dominated areas of Assam. Madrasas are public properties and these cannot be demolished without any prior legal notice,” the AIUDF chief said while addressing the reporters.
Accusing the RSS for the plan of bulldozing madrasas, he said, “If any person is arrested for his link with militant organisations or any kind of anti-national activities, the government can initiate action against such individual as per the law. Madrasas never teach hatred or communalism and demolishing them is illegal and unethical. Demolishing Madrasa is denying of education of children specifically for Muslim children.”
AIUDF has 15 members in the 126-member Assam assembly. With the demolishing of Bongaigaon madrasa, the Assam government bulldozed three madrasas in little over a month.
