Madrassas are hubs of terror, jihadis: Sakshi Maharaj

published on September 15, 2014

Swami Sakshi Maharaj, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Unnao referred to madrassas as having “no connection with nationalism.” Declaring them as “hubs of terror and jihadis”, Swami alleged that students were not being taught about nationalism in the religious schools.
 
“To teach students only about Quran and turn them into terrorists and ‘jihadis’ is not in the best interests of the nation. Name a madrasa in the country that hoists the National Flag on August 15 and January 26. They will have green flags but never the Tri-colour,” he said addressing an event organized in memory of Rani Laxmi Bai in Nademau village of Kannuaj.
 
The Unnao MP said madrassas “which have no connection with nationalism” are being given government aid. “Most of our schools do not take the aid but it is being given to madrassas having no connection with nationalism,” he said, adding that “madrassas should follow the same curriculum as normal schools instead of teaching terrorism.”

Bringing up the ongoing social malady of love jihad, the Unnao MP said that he was not against ‘love’ per se as it has existed since ages. “But the worrying factor is that children of ‘love-jihad’ couples are being brainwashed for anti-national activities,” he claimed and declared, “Money for this love-jihad is coming from Middle East.”

Sakshi Maharaj has been raking-up the madarsa issue for quite sometime. While addressing an event in Etah on September 7, he had described it as “hub of terror” and claimed that ‘love jihad’ was prospering through these institutions.
