RSS schools to counter Madarsas on Indo-Nepal border

The RSS, which has always demanded a check on the mushroom growth of the madarsas,specially, on the porous UP-Nepal border, has now hit upon a novel idea to counter it — RSS-run Vidya Bharti schools, all along the roughly 550 kilometer-long-border, eastern UP shares with Nepal.

To undertake the task, the Sangh has floated a new body, Seema Jagran Manch, which would oversee the construction of these schools.

The RSS, which has long maintained that madarsas, on both sides of the border, were actually being used for anti-national activity, feels that through these schools, it would be able to create an “army of patriots” ready to take on anyone casting an evil eye on India.

Undeterred, the Sangh plans to go ahead with its plan of building schools. But that’s not all. Senior RSS leader Indresh Kumar said, “Through the Seema Jagran Manchwe have started conducting coaching camps in border areas to provide training to youths. We plan to create a network in the border areas, which would tip-off security forces on spotting any suspicious activity there.”

A drive is already on to make more and more people on the border join the Seema Suraksha Bal and to encourage greater interaction between the Seema Suraksha Bal (SSB) and the people living on the Indian side of the border, the RSS has launched a novel rakshabandhan scheme, encouraging people on the Indian side to tie rakhi to SSB jawans.
