Nowadays, I usually listen from mosque’s load speaker. Small children are signing. “Let me go in Kabul’s jihad. I want to fight and be a martyr”
Letter: I See Madrassas But No Schools
Obviously! Its government responsibility to provide education to the people but if the government has failed to deliver, Isn’t it our social responsibility to work for child education? Lead them for better future? Make them better human beings?
Parents of rural areas send their children to madrassas rather than schools. I am not saying religious education is not good but it is essential to know, who is giving religious education to our children in madrassas? What is their qualification and background? What is their way of thinking? Are they leading our children towards a wrong path? Are they radicalizing Islam and misleading our children in the way of extremism?
Nowadays, I usually listen from mosque’s load speaker. Small children are signing.
“Let me go in Kabul’s jihad. I want to fight and be a martyr”
My city wasn’t like that before. But it’s our own weakness that we don’t know. Who is running the madrassas? What are they teaching inside madrassas?
We can only counter this religious extremism by better educational system and convince the parents that they should send their children in schools rather than in madrassas. We should have any eyes on these madrassas. Where we don’t even know what Mullah [Religious cleric] is teaching our children.
If we can’t do it ourselves then we should force our representatives in the parliament.
