Who abuses madrasas?

Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn

Submitted by Bharat Khan (Australia), Apr 24, 2007 at 23:16

Children who go to Madarasa are innocent, even most of the time their parents do not know that some crooks may use them for their political & other benefits in some exceptional places.

Madrasas abuse or misuse was started in Pakistan since Russians attacked Afghanistan. Who should be blamed, Russians who attacked Afghanistan without any reason just for hot water supply and to get control on Iran and Pakistan, or Madrasas with USA (CIA) who supported Bin Laden and Afghans? I think 90% people of the world will blame Russians.

Same thing happened in many other places, like all power states broken away from Russia like Tajakistan, Uzbakistan, Turkmanistan, Kazkhistan, Ukrain etc. but Russians did not allow Chechnya why? Why Serbs did not allow Bosnia to be freed whereas other states got freedom? Why Palestine, Kashmir and other problems are not solved honestly? Pakistan got other part of Kashmir why he is creating problem in Indian part? Who supported Pakistan for Business inetrests that everyone knows.

I believe all Madrasas must work under national main stream in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and other countries including teaching of Mathematics, English, other local language (Like Hindi & Urdu or Bengali), Science and IT. They must also get recognised certificates by Govt. bodies, so they could get jobs in Govt. and other private institutions rather than preaching in Masjids. The same system was imposed by Ottomans but destroyed by some western countries for their political and business interests.

Although I do not like Hindu extremists (or so called Nationalist) Party BJP (in some states) & also SP (Socialist or Samajwadi Party in UP) too much but they did some good tasks during last ten years like privatization so right people got right jobs, modern education system in Madaras, Bring Muslims in main stream in India. whereas Ruling Congress in Centre and other places always use Muslims as Vote bank animals, and time to time created some issues like Shahbano case, Aligargh Muslim University name, Hajj Subsidy, etc. etc. to engage them in useless issues, rather then promote and help them to get modern education and proper jobs.

Mr. Atalbihari Bajpayee realy did good job, but the current PM Mr. Manmohan Singh and President APJ Kalam are the best combination in the Indian history. Both have great thoughts, secular, intelligent, ambitious and Oxbridge intellectuals. I don't think India will get such PM and President in coming future in several centuries. If India needs real progress they must stop all election dramas for 25 years and let such people rule for sometime for bright Indian future and to become superpower.
