Govt keeping eye on madrasas with foreign teachers: Rajnath Singh

The government on Thursday said it was monitoring the activities of some madrasas over suspicions that foreign teachers there were indoctrinating young students in the jihadi ideology.



Gurgaon: The government on Thursday said it was monitoring the activities of some madrasas over suspicions that foreign teachers there were indoctrinating young students in the jihadi ideology.

"We are keeping an eye on every activity," Home Minister Rajnath Singh told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

He was replying to a question over reports of Bangladeshi nationals teaching students at a madrasa in West Bengal's Burdwan and Centre's plans to conduct a survey to check whether foreign nationals were deployed in seminaries.

The Burdwan madrasa's teachers, affiliated to banned terror group Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB), were allegedly involved in indoctrinating young students and attracting them to jihadi ideology.

A secret report submitted to the Home Ministry by security agencies has suggested that madrasas with Indian teachers were not involved in any jihadi or separatist activities or indoctrination.

The report has red-flagged madrasas which have teachers of Bangladeshi or Pakistani origin, saying there are examples of such madrasas actively radicalising young minds.
