In a major but controversial decision, the Uttar Pradesh government on Wednesday stopped funds to 46 madrassas. According to a Minority Welfare Department official, the action followed a probe which suggested that these madrassas were not functioning within the parameters defined for them.

A total of 560 madrassas in the state get government subsidy. A committee of district magistrates, inspectors of schools and minority welfare officers are mandated by the Bharatiya Janata Party government to certify the use of these funds. After a two-month scrutiny by these district level committees, the grant to 46 madrassas had been stopped along with salaries of teachers, the official said.

    Why the report not specifying the deficiency in these Madarasas. It must be clearly ... not imparting the regular scientific education, but only religion being taught with emphasison harednes of other religion, not hoising National on Indepemdance day, not singing National Anthem, are some of the violations by these madaras.

      Why Madrasha education is required for Muslims? Why don't they learn in normal schools? To make more and more Jihadi, it is the agenda to have Madrasha education. Muslims are more backward due to their Madrasha Education also. They usually read in Madrashas to highlight their religious studies/Jihadi ideologies. As a result, they do not achieve capacity to compete in any job examination and they blame the Govt. and others that they are deprieved of jobs and rely on OBC quota. But Muslims are not included in quotas at the beginning as lower caste Hindus have been deprieved of their legal rights for long by the so called upper caste Hindus as per Mondal commission. The Muslims should actually abandon such Madrasha education for their betterment because it based on 1400 hundred years backward thinking, Jihadi lessons and evils. I urge them to be more conscientious and ask to leave their so called peace religion.
