What about Christian Madrasas?

Reader comment on item: A Madrasa Grows in Brooklyn

Submitted by Muhammad Jesus Moses (Australia), Apr 30, 2007 at 00:21

Madarsa means school in Arabic language. There are 17,000 Christian Madaras in India where Christians get special concession in fee and teaching material and also in job. Hindus have also started parallel in temples in the name of "Sarsawati Vidhya Mandirs" (Sarasvati School Temples) and Adult Education (Pron Shiksha).

Several times Hindi Nationalist Parties & their supporting groups claim & shows real proof to media that Christians madrasas, charity organizations and hospitals are converting non-Christians into Christians by giving different things such as money, job, foreign tours etc. etc.

Indian, bagali or Pakistani Muslim and also Hindu Madaras do not get any international funds, most of the time run by local people ,whereas Christian Madrasas in India & other places get millions of dollars from Western countries. FYI, Hindu and Muslim Madrasas in India do not promote or execute any religion conversion. Same kind of Christian Madrasas I have been seen in many Arab and other Muslim countries during my visit in last 17 years. Be honest, realstic, equal thinking, justified and open minded.
