Shut madrasas to check ISIS influence on Muslim children: UP Shia board chief to PM Modi


January 22, 2019

UP Shia Central Waqf Board Chairman Waseem Rizvi who has supported the demand for Ram temple in Ayodhya and uniform civil code, said, Muslim children, if they want, can take admission in madrasas after completing high school.

In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, UP Shia Central Waqf Board Chairman Waseem Rizvi has demanded shutting down of primary-level madrasas across the country in order to check terror group ISIS’ influence on Muslim children. Rizvi, who has supported the demand for Ram temple in Ayodhya and uniform civil code, said Muslim children if they want, can take admission in madrasas after completing high school.

“It can be seen that children are soft targets for running any mission and at this point of time ISIS is a dangerous terror organisation which is gradually getting hold over the Muslim population across the world.

“…if madrasas are not shut down, about half of the country’s population will become supporters of the ISIS ideology in 15 years’ time,” Rizvi said in the letter.

Stressing that the support to the ISIS is clearly visible in Kashmir, where through the monetary support to the children attending madrasas, they are being alienated from people of other religion in the name of Islamic education, he said.

“In the rural areas of the country also, the primary madrasas in the name of donations are harming the future of our children and promoting fundamentalist thinking…this is damaging both the country and the Muslim children,” he said.

Taking admission in madrasas after schooling will not only help them take normal education till the high school level along with children of different sections of society and religion but also will deter them from getting easily influenced by fundamentalist thinking.

He has previously supported the building of a Ram temple at the disputed site in Ayodhya and a mosque ‘Masjid-e-Aman’ in Lucknow.
