I totally agree with Naresh's ignorance about Madrassas and agree with the number of Madrassas available in India, there is no ambiguity. Apart from what is depicted in the Media about Madrassas did you every try to know the fact personally by yourself. For Muslims, apart from common education, he needs to learn QURAAN, which is a foreign language and there is no Govt schools or Secular schools are available to impart this education to them. (Don't ask me what is the need, if it is too difficult?). Now I don't deny that in some of the Madrassas or the religious place might have been used by the terrorist for their interest. But my question is "Is TERRORISM has anything to do with the ISLAM? If you don't agree with me, than it is your duty to know what Islam Says about terrorism. just get a copy of Quraan to go through that before you form an opinion.

Well to my knowledge Islam is totally against terrorism and the word JIHAD is the most misunderstood word among people. The meaning of JIHAD is not to kill the innocents, nor is to take law (gun) in your hand kill the people you like, rather it continuous reverence on the way of Allah (codes prescribed by Allah). That mean if the law of god goes against your will then it's a spiritual fight against yourself, of course it has a wider meaning which I can't write in one sentence that's why I advise you to refer to Quraan.

To Be practical, in a place where you leave, there must be some Muslim family, someone of your friend must be a Muslim or around you there must be some Madrassas. Did you ever felt among your friends someone who has this mentality? Did you ever met a Muslim who doesn't love his life. Did you ever see in your area Madrassas training on the war fare principle? These poor people suffering to pay the fees of the teacher from where they will get money for other activities. If you are really concerned with these problems, try to go deep into this fact, you will find there is big mismatch between the media and reality.

My advice to you Visit any Madrassa and try to know their activity and Read Quraan to know what Allah says about Jihaad.
