BJP govt in Karnataka seeks report on madrassas activities



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
