In my secular country Indonesia, definitely the madrassah is the source of radicalism teaching. And since a long time ago, this kind of school was supported by Saudia Arabia where most of terrorists linked themself with radical muslims. Look, this seems like this project was designed long time ago to combat the westernised life style which definitely harm their tribal culture existence.

There is proof that Maddrassah schools' curriculum is nothing more than an effort to create supremacy of islam compared to other religions. In the end, most of the graduated students from this kind of school only have very narrow minded view of socialising with non muslims people.

Prove exists that their teaching pattern only created a mass graduated students force who are willing to die for the islam supremacy, then in the end created a jihadist people; of course if they brave enough will gathering to be a suicide bombers.

The fact is that seems they have very smart strategy by flooding certain area to lift up the population in order to play rule in politics as decision makers. In my country, there are ongoing examples of this case such as Moluka, or Poso in Sulawesi island.

The fact is that the muslim people tend to migrate to other place in order to gain control. This hystory has proven in my country, when nine muslims came from somewhere and changed hindu kingdoms to be muslims.

The fact is that their narrow minded teaching created a mass poor muslims community in the world. This just because of how this kind of radical teaching tries to combat the natural creativity of human kind

I wish this kind of teaching will soften themself by not tolerating radicalism in their religion. Otherwise this kind of teaching will create humans who thrust supremacy power by sword and blood , then this will create massive wars against non muslims
