Reports have indicated that the Karnataka government is considering action against madrasas along the lines of the Uttar Pradesh government led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.

The UP government has launched an investigation into ‘unrecognized’ madrasas in the state.

The Adityanath government justified the decision by saying that the exercise was aimed at streamlining private religious seminaries so that students could learn science and computer science there.

According to records, there are 16,461 theological schools in Uttar Pradesh, of which 560 are registered with the government and receive financial aid.

AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi strongly criticized the decision to investigate unrecognized madarsas and called the exercise a “mini NRC” (National Citizenship Registry).

Reacting to the investigation order, BSP chief Mayawati said the BJP government was trying to interfere in the internal affairs of the seminaries with the intention of “terrorizing” Muslims.

The Danish UP Minister of State for Minority Affairs, Azad Ansari, assured Muslims that “the purpose of the investigation is to know the real state of the madrassas and to help them to raise their level”.

“Relevant documents and forms regarding programs for minority communities will be made available to them during the survey so that social assistance programs reach villages and towns that have been hitherto deprived of them,” Ansari said. .
