Admitting children in madrasas is violation of human rights, teach children Quran but at home: Assam CM

himanta-biswa-sarma

NEW DELHI: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has said that madrasas should be banned and Quran must be taught to children at home. He was speaking at a conference organized by the RSS in Delhi.

"If you tell them that they will not become doctors or engineers if they study in madrasas, they themselves will refuse to go. Teach the Quran to your children, but at home. Admitting children in madrasas is a violation of their human rights," he said.

He said there should be stress on teaching science, maths, biology, botany, and zoology to all children but they should study to become doctors, engineers, professors and scientists.

"All Muslims were Hindus. No one was born a Muslim (in India). Everyone was a Hindu in India. So, if a Muslim child is extremely meritorious, I will give partial credit to his Hindu past." In 2020, the Assan government decided to dissolve all government-run madrassas and convert them into general educational institutions to facilitate a secular education system.
