MADRASA REGISTRATION UNACCEPTABLE
New Delhi: Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind held a meeting under the presidentship of Maulana Syed As’ad Madani to discuss various issues and problems regarding madrasas. Prominent among them were the recent statement of the Delhi government to compulsorily register all the madrasas in the capital and to introduce government syllabus in them. Maulana Madani said that the school syllabi which had been changed recently, had distorted history. He further said that now the government wants us to teach the same books. He said that those who run madrasas and not the government have better knowledge as to what should be taught there. When told that the Pakistan government also had issued orders to register madrasas, he said that Pakistan is not a democratic country while India is a democratic country where Constitution allows religious freedom.
While rejecting the accusation that madrasas give militancy training, Madani said that if there are such madrasas, they should be identified and action should be taken against them, but the government cannot interfere in all madrasas, he added. He demanded action against VHP, Bajrang Dal and RSS who openly distribute swords and trishuls and give arms training.
In another statement he said that the purpose of madrasas would be lost if the government provides monetary assistance or changes its syllabi.
MORE HAJ FLIGHTS

After these three new places the number of Haj embarkation points will become 13.

He also said that Air India which was incurring losses for the past five years has started earning profit during his incumbency. To and fro transportation of Hajis has greatly helped in reducing losses to Air India.
