Assam State education Minister Himanta Sharma said that the government’s money cannot be used to teach Quran in Madrasas.
The minister added that if the government is spending spending money on teaching Quran then uniformity must be brought by teaching Bible and Bhagwad Gita as well. He further stated that as the Assam government has decided to shut down all Madrasas in November, all government-aided Madrasas will be converted into regular schools. He said that in some cases teachers will be transferred to state government schools.
Sharma also said, “Many Muslim boys create Facebook accounts with Hindu names & post pictures of themselves at temples. Once a girl gets married to one such boy, she discovers that he is not from the same religion. This is not a bona fide marriage but a breach of trust,” the minister then added that the government has decided to act tough against such marriages. Assam has 614 government-aided recognized madrasas including 57 for girls, 3 for boys and 554 co-educational. A total of 17 Madrasas teach students in Urdu medium.
