Ulema reject Govt funding for Madrassas
Srinagar: The Raabitah-Madaaris Islamiyah Arabiyah Darul-Uloom Deoband branch Jammu and Kashmir organized a state level conference at Darul-Uloom Raheemiyah in Bandipora today.
On the occasion, the Ulema resolved that it won’t accept any financial aid from the Government for running Madrassas.
In a statement, Fayaz Ahmad Zaroo of Darul-Uloom Raheemiyyah said top Islamic scholars and heads of various Deeni-Madaaris from all over the state assembled at the Darul-Uloom at Mahmood-Abad Bandipora. He said the conference was presided over by General Secretary of Raabitah-Madaaris Islamiyah Arabiyah Darul-Uloom Deoband, Maulana Shaukat Ali Qasmi.
He was accompanied by a faculty member of Darul-Uloom Deoband, Maulana Khazir Muhammad Kashmiri
After threadbare discussions, the conference passed many resolutions. It was decided that the curriculum and the system of moral training of Darul-Uloom Deoband will be followed and implemented at all Deeni-Madaaris in letter and spirit.
The conference turned down the offer for affiliating Deeni-Madaaris with the Government Madrasah Board. “The conference again ruled out the acceptance of financial aid from the government as the real source for running these Madrassas,” the statement said.
