AIMIM chief response to Assam CM
As per reports from Hindustan Times, the AIMIM chief further criticised the Assam CM’s remark on the grounds that instead of spreading hate the CM should look into so many people who have lost their lives because of flood.
Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “Children won’t be able to think about becoming doctors and engineers as long as madrassas exist.” He further added that the word madrassa should be erased as these madrassas violate the basic rights of the children.”
He further added, “Nobody is saying don’t teach the Quran. But more than that, a student should be taught science, math, biology, botany, and zoology. Give religious teachings for 2-3 hours but in schools a student should be taught in a manner so that he can become an engineer or a doctor.”
In response to Himanta Biswa Sarma’s remark, AIMIM chief tweeted, “Unlike Shakhas, Madrassas teach self respect and empathy. Illiterate Sanghis wouldn’t understand. Why did Hindu social reformer Raja Ram Mohun Roy study in a Madrasa?”
