It is inappropriate of Mr. A.A. to accuse pakistani madrassas for spreading terrorism. I want t omention that I have studied in a madrassa, for a while, myself and I am residing in US these days. My friends over here find me a very liberal and progressive minded person. So how come if madrassa's effect thier students mentality they did not affect mine. The reason is that they do not preach terrorism at all. In fact, they discipline people and get them to the path of piety and goodness as any other religion would do.

Madrassas are actually not a breeding ground for fanaticism, but a school for people who need a little religious guidance. In america we see christian schools and colleges all around, if they preach religion and do not let students from other religions to follow their religion, then why are they not accused of allegations as madrassas are?
