A teacher from an English medium school in Fatehpur has revealed an Islamic conversion racket being run in the school where Hindu students and staff are being lured to embrace Islam. The teacher from Nurul Huda school said that she was expelled and her pay was withheld when she raised objections regarding the same.
UP Anti-terrorism Squad (ATS) has busted a country-wide racket run by Mufti Qazi Jahangir Qasmi and Mohammad Umar Gautam. The duo has been taken into custody and their seven-day remand began on Wednesday. Foreign involvement and funding including that of Pakistan’s ISI and several Arab countries have now come to light. In a shocking revelation, it has been learned that the duo planned to convert hearing and speech impaired children who were to be later used as human bombs.
Many families who became a victim of the racket have also come forward to narrate their stories. A victim named Manu Yadav’s father has said that he had received threatening calls from Pakistan asking him not to hinder the conversion of his son.
OpIndia reports the details revealed by teacher Kalpana Singh and says:
Now, in another shocking revelation, a lady teacher named Kalpana Singh from Nurul Huda English Medium in Fatehpur, Uttar Pradesh, has revealed how Umar Gautam had visited the school she taught in with 20-25 other Maulanas in the year 2020, to brainwash them to adopt Islam.
Kalpana Singh, a resident of Bakarganj village in Airayan Block in Fatehpur district, Uttar Pradesh, claimed that the clerics lured students and the staff for conversion by promising financial support. Umar Gautam and his accomplice assured them that they would pull them out of poverty if they converted to Islam.
She revealed how Umar Gautam had pressurized her to convert to Islam by assuring her a better life after conversion. Umar Gautam had told non-Muslims like Kalpana that, unlike their Hindu religion, in Islam, financial support is provided to all the needy and destitute. He tried to convince Kalpana that all her financial woes would be taken care of if she agrees to get converted to Islam.
The teacher has further disclosed that the main accused Umar Gautam put pressure on the school management to teach Urdu and Arabic to the students and accordingly the school is said to have started Urdu and Arabic classes for kindergarten students.
Singh alleged that one of the teachers taught namaz to the entire class under the pretext of teaching Muslim students. As per Kalpana, non-Muslim students present in the class also began picking it up in bits and pieces and reciting it at home. As a result, their parents raised a complaint with Kalpana regarding the issue.
Kalpana, in turn, brought the issue to the management’s notice and asked them to discontinue the classes. However, instead of discontinuing, the school issued threats to Kalpana and alleged that she was discriminating between Muslim and non-Muslim students.
Subsequently, the female teacher was expelled by the school. Following, her expulsion she registered a complaint with Fatehpur’s Sadar Kotwali against the manager of the school- Sharif Maulana and his son Umar Sharif, under IPC Sections 406, 504, and 506, however, the police took no action against the school management and with time the matter was swept under the carpet.
Kalpana is one among the several victims of the country-wide Islamic conversion racket run by the duo now under the remand of UP ATS. Police have registered cases under sections 420, 120 B, 153A, 153B, 295, and 511 of the Indian Penal Code and Section 3/5 the Uttar Pradesh Prohibition of Unlawful Conversion of Religion Ordinance-2020 against the duo.
In the meanwhile, Muslim politicians are defending the Islamists alleging a ‘conspiracy’ to ‘defame Islam’. This is a classic case of shifting the blame instead of addressing the issue. It must be mentioned that child rights bodyNCPCR has taken cognizance of the issue based on the teacher’s revelations and written to the District Magistrate (DM) and the Superintendent of Police (SP) of Fatehpur district on June 25 (Friday) saying that the statutory body has taken suo motu notice of matter under Section 13(1)(j) in the Commissions for Protection of Child Rights Act, 2005.
