    RTE attack on sovereignty of madrasas: Deoband
    Posted: Fri Jul 29 2011

    Terming the Right to Education Act as an “attack” on the sovereignty of madarsas and other minority institutions, Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband on Thursday said it will oppose it.

    “The seminary will strongly protest the move to snatch rights of madarsas through RTE, and it is with the All India Muslim Personal Law Board which is already opposing it,” newly-appointed vice-chancellor Maulana Abul Qasim Nomani told PTI. He said the Act poses a threat to the independence of madarsas and their education system. “If minority institutions are not excluded from the Act, then Deoband will lodge its protest either on its own or under the banner of the AIMPLB,” Nomani said.

    He said during a programme organised by Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind in Delhi an year back, when apprehension were raised in this regard, Union Human Resource Minister Kapil Sibal had assured them that such educational institutions would be kept out of the ambit of the act. “But this has not been done,” he said.

    UP has around 6,000 madarsas and 6,500 minority schools. The AIMPLB held a meeting to protest against RTE last Sunday, in which it was decided that if the Centre does not exclude madarsas and other minority institutions from the ambit of the Act then a nation-wide agitation would be launched after the month of Ramzan.

    Member of the Board Zafaryab Jilani said that last year in April, the Centre issued an order regarding RTE, after which the UP government also issued an order in this regard on May 19, 2010. He alleged that notices were being issued to madarsas directing them to change their system in accordance with the law.

    Bugger off ye inbred scoundrels. How can an act about investing citizens with a right to educate themselves be an attack on the sovreignity of madrasas?
