Bareilly: A madrasa here has taken the lead in fighting misuse of the holy Quran by terrorist groups.
The Dargah Aala Hazrat here has included a subject called 'Islam and terrorism' in the Hadith course.
The aim is to help graduate students understand the original text from the Quran and not be carried away with incorrect translations that are promoted by terrorist groups to win support.
As per The Times of India, clerics at the Jamia Razviya Manazar-E-Islam madrasa will help students understand how original extracts from the Quran and Hadith are different from the one 'peached' by terrorist groups.
The madrasa will also organise workshops to show students how terrorists misuse religion spread their message and influence young and impressionable minds.
"Many terrorists groups, including IS, al Qaeda and Taliban have published misleading extracts from Hadith. Through this, they try to lure youngsters to join their groups. The original texts of religious books are in Arabic. These groups fool young people by misquoting religious texts while offering a translation. In this specialisation course, we will compare original extracts with the ones published by terrorist organizations to make students aware of the true message of Islam, and demonstrate how it is being corrupted," the daily quoted Mufti Mohammed Saleem Noori, senior teacher and head of the specialization course, as saying.
Eight students are currently enrolled in the graduate course which began on Wednesday.
