  • Mr Sultan Shahin you are playing Bad cop and good cop game deceiving everybody.
    Ambedkar never wanted to convert to Buddhism but Ghandhi was never ready to condemn manuscript, Ghandhi was doing intellectual jingoism which you too do with your brigade of NAI, if your Quran is eternal than it cannot have violent verses situation based 1400 years ago, it is still valid for killing polytheist.
    What you do is trying to decive all  who are not belving  in your Quran, you try to play good cop game.
    Those violent verses are all time applicable and cannot be said by God, that simple.
    You also cheat people like Zakir Naik, that you are evolving which is huge fake as I have never seen any issue that concern to Hindu and atrocities carried by Muslim to Hindus.

  • I talked to some Ulama about the text of Bahare Shariat quoted in this article. They said all war-related aayat, commentaries and explanations deal with the context of war. They can’t be applied in today’s situation for several reasons.

    They also said “it is good to point out necessaity of such text to be given in proper context as it might create confusion among common readers”.

    Either of the two things can be done in the case of the quoted text; deletion of irrelevant text in the chapter of Akhlaq w Adab or addition of proper context.

  • Iam humbly requesting all the learned friends please don't waste valuable time and thoughts while indulging in a wrong subject with wrong topic. This word cannot be sovereignty but may be autonomous status. Many madrassa are autonomous. One more thing to say that basically they are the place of learning and should not be misunderstood.

  • In India secularism means that tolerance of atrocity and exploration , done by Muslims .Any defence against Muslims,called communalism .
    Here how a fake deliberation is going on word "sovereignty", which is only viable to be fitted with state .
    It cannot exist in any town city village institution house room etc. unless there is anarchy .

  • Religious faith had dominance till there was no industrial revolution. Post industrialization, over emphasis on religious faith and madrassa education will leave Muslim community behind the other religions and races. Time for dominance of religion is up. Until the Muslims change their dated beliefs of the religion, they will be outdated by time. This era does not belong to religious dogmatic life but practical and pragmatic life with advancement of knowledge in science, technology, universal brotherhood.
    By Satpal Batra - 3/31/2019 3:36:49 AM

  • Muslims believe in co existence with other religions, because Islam teaches it followers that all men and women are sons and daughters of Adam and eve and that among you all one who fears Allah is the most respectful and that killing an innocent human being is the biggest offender and the worst human being and to show utmost patience against cruality but if it crosses the limit then allows a Muslim to revenge to the same extent to which he was made to suffer but Islam prefers forgiveness over revenge is this is what our book Quran tells us but inspite of this reality muslims are called terrorists why, why those countries who settled jews in Palestine at the cost of Palestinians, who invaded Libya, Iraq and Afghanistan and killed lakhs of human beings are not terrorists

  • Akhtar Shah In whole the Muslim world, the non Muslims are treated as secondary citizens and their lives are miserable. In India, the area which is dominated by Muslim population is like Darul Harb for the rest.

  • Zakir Naik never spread hatred. He only spread laughter. I was always amused by the stupidity of his ideas and also by the gullibility of his audience. Whenever I got bored, I would switch on his TV Chanel for entertainment. I miss Zakir Naik.

  • Islam is not a new religion but it is the religion of all the prophets,the other religions have their roots in Islam but whenever truth is showed to u ,u start crying,Islam teaches equality of all but subject to actions,may be some Muslims are not right but that does not mean Islam is not right,what was the sin of zakir Naik ,y was he removed because the priests feared they will die of hunger as Naik was influencing people without weapons
    By Mohd Ramzan - 3/31/2019 3:32:42 AM

  • Which passages are violent in your view why are you bent upon defaming muslims,in whose favour you are doing this, why don't you expose the naked barbarism and extremism of other religion's Islam and muslims all over the world ,Islam preaches peace and likes peace and at the same time they can't become mute spectators when it's enemies invade their territories, they have every right to defend them under such situations it is your responsibility to expose the invader and safe guard the suppressed, but people like you can't do that because you are paid agents of oppressors and in order to please them you start labelling baseless false allegations against muslims, their places of worship and other assets

  • The whole write up is utterly nonsense with full of prejudice against Madrasahs and Islamic centre of learning. He is even unaware about curricula and syllabi of Madarsas. The author wants to get cheap publicity among so-called secularists whose only aim is to defame Islam Muslims. If he wants to see the the ghetto atmosphere and ghettoised mentality of educational institutions, he must visit the government primary and secondary schools in rural areas of UP and Bihar, and then visit some Madarsa in same rural area, he will find where the ghetto is.

  • آرٹی آئی ایکٹ کے تحت مدارس: ایک قدم صحیح راہ کی طرف

    عبدالمعید ازہری

    آل انڈیا مسلم پرسنل لاء بورڈ کی تجاویز کہ مدارس کو رائٹ ٹو انفارمیشن ایکٹ (معلومات حاصل کرنے کا حق)کے تحت لانے کی تجویز خود مختار مسلم تعلیمی اداروں پر حملہ ہوگا،صرف ایک بھرم ہے جبکہ اس قدم سے نہ صرف مدارس میں تعلیم حاصل کرنے والے سات ملین بچوں کو فائدہ ہوگابلکہ اس کے ساتھ ساتھ بڑے پیمانے پرسماج کی ترقی اور خود مختاری کامطلوبہ اور من چاہا نتیجہ حاصل ہوگا۔مدارس کے نصاب تعلیم کا زیادہ ترحصہ مذہبی تعلیم پر مشتمل ہے جو اصل میں بدقسمتی سے مسلمانوں کے درمیان ان کی زندگی کے آغاز سے 'یہودی بستی' کی ذہنیت سے مرتب کیا گیا۔زیادہ ترمدارس بہتر معاصر تعلیم سے محروم ہیں جن کو ، قومی کمیشن برائے بچوں کے حقوق کا تحفظ(نیشنل کمیشن فار پروٹیکشن آف چائلڈ رائٹس)نے آر ٹی آئی کے تحت لانے کا مطالبہ کیا ہے تاکہ یہ یقینی بنایا جائے کہ بچوں کو جدید تعلیم کے حق سے محروم نہ کیا جائے۔مسلمانوں کو ایک منسلک دنیا کی موجودہ مسابقتی اور مقابلہ جاتی دنیا میں بڑھنے اور انحصار کرنے کی ضرورت ہے نہ کہ اپنے آپ کو 'قبائلی ذہنیت کا ایک بنیاد پرست، تشدد پسندانہ سماج' کے طور پرپیشکرنے کی۔اس آر ٹی آئی ایکٹ( رائٹ ٹو انفارمیشن ایکٹ) کے عمل میں لانے کے بعد مدارس کے طلبا کے پاس نہ صرف دنیاکے ساتھ قدم سے قدم ملا کر چلنے کا ہنر ہوگابلکہ انہیں جدید نصاب اور تکنیکوں سے لیس رکھا جاسکے گا جو انسانوں کی زندگیوں کو تشکیل دے رہا ہے اور اس کے ساتھ ساتھ تیزی سے بدلتے ہو ئے اس عالم سے جوڑے رکھے گا۔

    By Narasimham Vakkalanka - 3/18/2019 8:58:14 AM

  • Reason please. RSS never ever dropped a bomb in Pakistan but see what Islamic State is doing in everywhere. In early history we found Kings fighting but after the development of State, Church had not been in the rule, so are the Kings. Only Islamic State is craving for a Rule. Why? Religion is nothing but a relationship with God and it is to be personal. If God wished the whole world would have been under one religion at the blink of an eye. But purported followers of God are killing people for Islamic State. Practise all your ways in the religion leading to God in the personal realm. The other purpose of religion is to Love, save, serve mankind and thereby to serve God through His creation. When you kill and torture, what you do in the name of religion? Why religion should be forced on others faith? It only signifies that there is a severe lacuna in the faith of your cult. With such lacunae you can force but you can't reason. There is a need for severe introspection on your part so far as the cult appears to be destructive. ISIS knows only two words, Death and Torture. The word Love is not in their dictionary. How can a reasonable person follow them?

  • The wide division of opposing views created by Muslim "Ulema" get aggravated to reach a point of no return because each sect creates new generations of its rival followers through these "madrasas". In most cases one is forced to believe that it is the madrasa teachers who get a job and salary assured by collecting children from poor families and collect zakat in the name of these poor children from the community. These children grow up to become imams and madrasa teachers and the cycle will go on in perpetuity. We need a better and neutral system to give religious and quran teaching without depriving them of the mainstream education in schools and colleges.

But looking at the comments one can easily guess that Sultan Shahin is a morally corrupt person.....5000 saal se beemar logon ko god me baithkar 1400 saal se beemar logon ka ilaaj ho hi nahi sakte. Islam can be defeated by truth and forthrightness no need to take the inherently corrupt and dishonest ones as allies. A genuine atheist or agnostic of muslim and indian origin should have equal disdain for Islam and the Savarnas or else he is just a fraud.

  • While humanity is getting maturity the natural process should not be disturbed. Those correcting others they should correct themselves first. Manuvad has having no human values neither fit to create civilized society, they should realize and filter theory of inequality and God dictated superiority to make the people slave to serve them and enjoy all comforts instead correcting others.

  • @Ashir Husain Do not ignore history, you will know, that the terrorism is inbuilt. Mohamed the prophet went on several conquests to plunder the Jews to their East and enslave them. Is that not terrorism ?
    Mahmud Ghazni, followed by Ghuri to Alaudin Khilji, to Jahangir Shahjahan and Aurangazeb, imposing Jiyaz on Hindus ?
    Is it not terrorism?
    Aurangazeb execution of Tegh Bahadur Singh the last Sardar Guru of Sikhs
    Is it not terrorism ?
    Islamic terrorism is inherent and is never apart from the Religion, however much you deny it.
    You cannot erase it. You cannot forget it.

  • @Ashir Husain  For centuries since the beginning of Prophet to the Saladahin and his religious hegemony, the religion has always been confisicative, and conflictive in learning and teaching. The interpretation has always been non hormonious spreading hate and vengeance. It had to compete with Christianity another hegemonical religion to survive.

In private funding what they are doing in pattern of education that's may not be concern for the Govt. If you have seen that the pattern of education is quite OK then others can see it that the money is used in proper way.

More than 95 % of students live in hostel where three meals are provided for free. No tuition fee is charged. They follow nezamia syllabus and have included English, math, computer in their courses.
    I suggest that please visit and see before passing judgement. There are many Madrasas where government support is also obtained.

     This does not suits you. You are same others, your progressiveness is not inclusive it exculisive to Muslim suffering.
    Biggest thing is you are based in Delhi, where most Kashmiri pandits live and haven't put any articles form others or your thoughts on Kashmiri pandits exodus.
    You are same hypocrate like others only difference is your version Is advance  non-violent version which plays card like Zakir Naik to bring violence towards non-Muslims, especially to Hindus in India.
    Never seen articles which shows misbehaviour of Muslims with Hindus constantly in India.

There is no worthwhile invention by any Muslim country. After the stock if Arab oil is depleted in coming 50 years, the Muslims will find themselves at the lowest step of the ladder if mankind. Yes, there is a strong need for change in the mindset and approach in the thinking for Muslims. Enough basking under the mistaken glory of Muslim Invaders to the rich land of Indian sub continent fo looting and forcibly converting about 40 percent population in to Muslims won't pay dividend any more.

    Anyone who does not follow the tenets of Islam is himself a non believer even being a so called Muslim.

    //Our ulema cannot be unaware that Muslim youth in large numbers are joining jihadist groups around the world today//.

    Millions of Mullahs, Imams and Madrasa teachers around the world are not taking meaningful action because their hearts are still longing for a world Caliphate. They firmly believe that democracies and new ideas are an obstacle to their dreams. We cannot blame their dreams which are forged on the spectacular Islamic military victories in the past.

    Mohmmad Yunus stays out of India, he can reflect on my Example given below.
    Here is another observation and attitude of Muslims towards eduction system.
    Muslims in the world has fix approach us(Muslim)and Them and thier approach is to bring constant conflict with every other community, and system which they feel is not Islamic.
    Another approach is to discredit and disrespect all values that has good universal out coming, if it is not related to Islam, than hate them hate local land hero like Ram, Muslim cannot elevate to higher moral level. who hates heroes and theirs forefather who has lived higher moral values because their values only has to be from they narrow land of Arab and Arabic paigambers, so much and so sick is Muslims mind cannot progress as their mind has decided to stick to Arab area and their history.
    In all western countries even though though Muslim take western education they bunk their classes on Friday or universities and educational Institue are forced to give a prayer room, Canada is being forced to teach Quran in Friday.

    By Sultan Shahin - 3/5/2019 5:03:38 AM

  • Comment on the article - follow up to my last comment below: 

    The article highlights some of the short-comings-and potentially adverse impacts of current madrassa education and makes some ground-breaking statements / remarks:

    1.    Islamic theology, as it is taught unabashedly and senselessly, is full of violence, most of it against Muslims who dare to think a new thought.

    2.    Some passages in madrassa textbooks (one extract quoted) appropriate “violence as well as irrelevancies like how to treat female prisoners of war and concubines etc.

    3.    Our ulema cannot be unaware that Muslim youth in large numbers are joining jihadist groups around the world today.

    4.    Today, we have become a society which can produce a whole army of suicide bombers practically anywhere in the world. The blame lies squarely with the kind of education imparted in our madrasas.

    5.    Madrasa education is a serious violation of the human rights of Muslim children.

    It makes two clear suggestions to the custodians of madrassa institution:

    ·         To weed out from textbooks passages that can promote murderous violence, hatred as well as irrelevancies

    ·         To adopt RTE – give Muslim students the right to universal education

    The question is: are these charges likely to cause any concern or touch the souls of the proponents of madrassa education or they will regard them as baseless, biased, fictitious and unworthy of any attention. If the later happens, the article is in vain and the effort to produce it is nearly wasted. So let us firs reflect on how the proponents of madrasa education may take or subconsciously contest the above remarks listed below in order.

    1.    They will genuinely feel that if indeed Islamic theology taught in madrassas is full of violence, at least some students in each madrassa housing hundreds and even thousands of students would have been constantly engaged in fighting with rival fellow students creating a law and order situation on a daily basis. They may not find any evidence of such perennial fighting in a single madrassa out of tens of thousands of them in India and therefore take the charge baseless, fictitious - mere rhetoric.

    2.    They will say that there are other textbooks / scriptures – the Bible for example that is no softer than the passage quoted and no one talks about weeding out any similar passages from them

    3.    They will argue if “large numbers of Muslim youths were joining jihadist groups around the world today,” there would have been hundreds of thousands of jihadi youth in the world who would have carried out hundreds if not thousands of terror attack every day. As incidence of terror attacks is a mere miniscule, they will dismiss this as the author’s perception only.

    4.    The extremely low and stray incidences of suicide bombers render any suggestion of the Muslims producing ‘an army of suicide bombers’ totally unsubstantiated and maliciously politicized.

    5.    They have already argued that any suggestion to modernize madrassa education amounts to “An attack on the sovereignty of madrasas”

    So what good can this article do, is really a big question mark.

    Hence there is need to supplement the article with more compelling arguments that cannot be simply dismissed as the author’s perception, speculation, baseless or fictitious This will be covered in my next article captioned: .”The grievous Fallouts of restricting the scope of universal education in traditional madrassas today in the India”
    By mohammed yunus - 3/4/2019 7:50:32 AM

  • While this quoting is taugth by Madrasa teachers in context of war conduct, this is still not properly arranged. This should not be placed in the chapter of Akhlaq w Adab. 
    Some Ulama have agreed to work at this quoting and add appropriate commentary on that. 
    Thank you Mr. Sultan Shahin for your timely suggestion.

    By Talha - 3/4/2019 2:08:53 AM

  • While the impact of madrassa education on the dynamics of terrorism and  radicalization (killing the mushrikin and sinning Muslims) may be contested by the traditionalists on the seemingly convincing ground that madrassa education is in vogue for many centuries while terrorism in the name of Islam is a very recent phenomenon, I nevertheless fully endorse the following concluding remarks of the article:

     "RTE will ensure a modern curriculum so that children are more attuned to the world around them. They will study what students in other schools are being taught and will not feel left out once they leave madrasas. A modern education will equip them to a world where technology is shaping lives and changing it at a breathtaking pace."

    “Madrasa education is a serious violation of the human rights of Muslim children. Our children and the world at large deserve better. We simply cannot live in the 21st Century with a 7th-Century mindset

    I did an article some eight years ago referenced below (not referenced in the above article) that made a passionate appeal to bring madrassa education in line with the universal or modern education as imparted in all civil schools. Its following concluding remark is drawn on the forced and unlawful division of knowledge between Islamic and non-Islamic and can hold its ground even if we disregard terrorism as a basis for the proposed reform: 

    "It is high time that the Muslim Ulema abolish any division of knowledge between Islamic and un-Islamic and incorporate the study of physical sciences and other universal faculties and professional disciplines in the curriculum of the madrasas. Obviously any major transformation in educational curriculum has to come in stages, but having lost almost five centuries, there is no more time to lose. Today, the participation of Muslims in academic and professional fields, cultural arenas, and prestigious and lawful avenues of livelihood in practically all Muslim minority countries is abysmally low as their educational, professional and cultural attainments are handicapped by their own or their parents’/ancestors’ madarsa based education. In historical perspective, if any single agency has to bear the blame for the introductory poetic outburst, it is probably the Ulema and the orthodox Islam - their throwback influence and reductive madarsa curriculum as this discourse amply demonstrates – however, bitter this may sound.

    In fact, the Ulema can probably redeem themselves by taking an about turn in their attitude by pro-actively espousing universal knowledge as suggested above, and also adopting appropriate Western language as a compulsory subject in their curriculum, for a Western language, notably English, is far richer and advanced in interpreting the kalimat (manifestations) of God and harnessing God’s blessings as the Qur’an enjoins than any other language at this moment. No doubt it is going to be a steep path – but probably the only path out of the ‘Lighting’ that “seems to strike only the Musalman. Finally to put a Qur’anic seal to this burning Ijtihad:

    “… God does not change the favor which He has bestowed on a people, unless they change themselves…” (8:53).

    “… God does not change the condition of a people, unless they change themselves*…” (13:11)

    An Open Reminder to the Ulema: Rejecting Universal Knowledge as Un-Islamic is Brazenly Un-Islamic and Kufr (denial of truth)

    I may post another comment on the adverse impacts of madrassa education today as illustrated in the above article.

  • The goal must be to weed out all hate and violence from our school curricula. The so-called sword verses must not be taught. The eventual goal must be to let all madrasas evolve into secular schools, setting aside perhaps an hour each week to inculcate the peaceful and inclusive aspect of religions.
    Hats off. Let us press this point  in public meetings.

  • all books of madrasas are taught by teachers and you should present their explanation otherwise there is the Quran which clearly calls for JIHad but you give it context while this Jihad verse does not tell you that it should be taken in context
