‘All terrorists are raised in madrasas’: Madhya Pradesh Minister Usha Thakur (Video)

New Delhi: Striking another controversy, Madhya Pradesh Minister Usha Thakur on Tuesday (October 20) said that all terrorists are raised in madrasas, they had turned J&K into a terror factory.

She also said that Madrasas which can’t comply with nationalism, they should be merged with the existing education system to ensure the complete progress of the society.

The BJP legislator cited Assam’s recent announcement to shut down madrasas to support her statement. “Assam has shown it with success… so all those institutions creating hurdles in the way of nationalism will have to be shut down in the national interest,” Thakur said.

“Waqf Board in itself is an able organisation and if someone, in a personal capacity, wishes to impart religious teachings, he is free to do so as per the provision of the Constitution,” added the Mhow MLA.


Congress media coordinator Narendra Saluja, while responding to the statement, said that the BJP is trying to give a communal colour to the upcoming bypolls and added the culture minister’s statement is part of this plan. Saluja further appealed to the Election Commission to act on the matter.

This comes after Assam Education and Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma had said the government will shut down all state-run madrasas and Sanskrit tols (schools) as it cannot allow teaching religious education with public money. The minister had said the government will issue a formal notification in this regard in November.
