The Bharatiya Janata Party government in the Indian state of Karnataka in another controversial move against Muslims and their organizations has sought a report on activities of madrassas from the education department.
Amid a campaign against 960 madrassas by the hardliner Hindutva organizations, the education department has initiated the exercise.
The Commissioner of the education department will lead a committee formed for submitting a report on the activities of the madrassas.
It seems obvious that the BJP is hell bent on banning these madrassas in the state after submission of the report.
Taking a leaf out of the Uttar Pradesh government, Basavaraj Bommai government in Karnataka is also contemplating a similar action regarding the madrassas.—INP
