Ban Madrasas to save India from terror: Togadia

via PNS | Kochi - Daily Pioneer.com published on February 25, 2009

India will never be able
to fight terrorism until and unless an effective ban is imposed on all
Madrasas in the country, Praveen Togadia, international general
secretary, Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), has said.

On the second
day of his visit to Kerala, Togadia asked the people to remember that
Taliban was created in the hundreds of Madrasas. He told newsmen that
it grew up teaching Jehad in Pakistan. “This should not be replicated
in any part of our country,” he said.

The curriculum of the
Madrasas was the same in Pakistan, Afghanistan, India and Saudi Arabia
and the teachings there would only create more terrorists, he said.
India was a secular country and the teaching of Jehadi, which was
creating fundamentalists, could not be tolerated, he said. Action
should be taken against the Madrasas for propagating hatred in the
minds of the people, he demanded.

Condemning Jehadi attacks
across the world, including those America and Britain, Togadia said the
countries in the West had passed tough and potent laws to ensure that
attacks on the innocent people did not take place.

He
criticized the decision of the Kerala Government to provide pension to
the Madrasa teachers, saying that the Government should withdraw the
decision as it would only foster the growth of religious schools, which
taught killing of innocent people.

Referring to the global
economic slowdown, Togaida said the recession should be attributed to
petrol Jehadi practised by the OPEC countries, “mainly the Muslim
nations.”

On the BJP’s renewed commitment to build Ram Temple in
Ayodha, the VHP functionary said that the temple should be constructed
without breaking any law. Hoping that BJP would include the
construction of Ram temple in its election manifesto, he said the
temple should be built by passing a law in Parliament, if the BJP came
to power in the Centre.

Togadia said that were three ways of
setting up the temple. These were through negotiation with the Muslims,
through the intervention of the Judiciary and by passing a law in
Parliament, he said.

“We oppose the first two propositions and
the party should take the third route to construct the temple, Togadia,
who was in Kochi to participate in a VHP public meeting, said.

In
the wake of strong indications that Pakistani elements were involved in
the Mumabi attacks, Togadia urged the Centre to snap ties with the
neighbouring country. There was strong and sufficient evidence of the
involvement of Pakistan in the attacks but India was keeping friendly
ties with them, he said. The government had failed in handling Pakistan
after the Mumbai attacks and it was foolishness to continue friendly
ties with that country, he said.

On the stand-off between
government and the LTTE in Sri Lanka, Togadia said the Centre should
exert pressure on the Sri Lankan Government for protecting human rights
of the Tamils in the island nation. He alleged the Centre and the Tamil
Nadu Government were not doing enough to protect the rights of the
Tamils, who were denied of medicine and other essentials.

Inaugurating
the district conference of the VHP in Thrissur the other day, Togadia
asked the various Christian churches to abandon conversion efforts and
to join hands with the Hindus.

There also he said the move of
the Kerala Government to provide pension to Madrasa teachers would only
lead to promotion of extremism.

He said that extremism had
come under control in Britain and America after laws were enacted there
to imprison those who taught or learned Jehad in the Madrasas.

After
landing at the Kochi airport earlier, Togadia said millions of people
had been badly affected due to loss of jobs following the economic
recession in the country.

At the same time, about three crore
Muslims from Bangladesh were illegally working in India, he alleged.
They should be deported soon so that Indians, who suffered from lack of
employment, would secure jobs, he said.

Togadia said his
organisation had plans to organize 5,000 meetings all over the country
to highlight the adverse impact of Islamic Jehadi terrorism and
economic slowdown.
