Illegal madrasa in Assam demolished after terror links of teachers emerge

The Assam government on Wednesday demolished a private-run Madrasa in its bid to foil the alleged terror activities being run from the Madrasas in the state.

This morning, the Bongaigaon district administration demolished Markazul Ma’arif-u-Kariyana Madrassa at Kabaitari in the Jogighopa area of the district.

Eight bulldozers carried out the demolition drive in the presence of a huge number of police personnel there.

SP Bongaigaon, Swapnaneel Deka informed that a notice regarding the demolition was issued to the Madrasa authority on Tuesday. Of the nearly 200 students, most of them were sent back home, while a few others who stayed on the Madrasa premises shifted to nearby institutions before carrying out the demolition.

Hafizur Rahman, a teacher of this madrasa, was arrested on August 26 based on information provided by two imams earlier nabbed by the place from the Goalpara district.

Police claimed that Rahman and two imams have strong links with the terror outfits Al-Qaeda in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) and Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT).

“We have found some incriminating documents while searching the madrasa,” Deka said.

Asked about the reason behind the demolition, the police officer said that the madrasa was constructed violating the government norms and necessary permissions for the building were also not sought.

“So, it was demolished under provisions of the Disaster Management Act”, he added.

In the last five months, Assam police have arrested around 40 people for their alleged links to Al-Qaeda in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) and Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT).

  1. The Assam Govt. has taken the right action. These Madrasas teach ‘jihad’ and inculcate hate philosophy and are a dangerous threat to our national integrity. So the students from these Madrasas should be shifted to general schools adopting CBSE, or SCST curriculum approved by Govt. and adopted throughout the country. Teachings should be unbiased, transparent, and science based (not based on religion). Only then we can build a strong nation.
