It may be noted that Assam CM Sarma had said earlier that only religious teachings went on in Madrasas and that such teachings should be done at one’s home.

CM Sarma was addressing a gathering at an event in Delhi where he stated that children will not be able to think about becoming doctors or engineers till the word ‘madrasas’ exist.

He had said, “If you tell them that they will not become doctors or engineers if they study in madrasas, they themselves will refuse to go. Teach the Quran to your children, but at home. Admitting children in madrasas is a violation of their human rights.”
