Madrassas should be barred from teaching Urdu says Shiv Sena


Mumbai: Shiv Sena on Wednesday said Madrassas in India should be barred from using Urdu and Arabic as a medium of instruction and should be replaced with Hindi or English, while asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take a hint from UK government, warning that migrants on spousal visas who fail to speak English may face banishment.

The party hit at PM and his colleagues, by commenting that from where would they get the courage to fight enemies within the country? They are busy in getting investments into the country by touring others nations.

The government should show strength and start the construction of Ram Temple in Ayodhya and bring in the Uniform Civil Code.

“The British government is not wrong in thinking that Islamic State militants use uneducated Muslim women to propagate their ideas. Prime Minister Narendra Modi should take cues from the British government,” the Sena said in an editorial in its mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.

“India will benefit if the government can show courage like British Prime Minister David Cameron and bar madrassas from teaching in Urdu and Arabic and instead impart education in English and Hindi languages,” it opinioned.(inputs from agencies)
