New Delhi: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said “strict action” will be taken in the case of lynching of a Muslim man in a Uttar Pradesh village over rumours that he ate beef.

At the inauguration of a two-day national conference on human trafficking here, he said: “Be it the central or state governments, whoever tries to spread communal tension or create any such problem or involve in crime, strict action will be taken. This is nothing new.”

He was replying to a query on the September 28 night lynching of Mohammed Akhlaq, a resident of Bisara village of Dadri in Greater Noida near Delhi.

The victim was dragged out of his home and lynched following rumours that he ate beef. His family denied the allegations.

On the rise of human trafficking in the South Asian countries, the minister said human trafficking is a “border-less organised crime”.

He said it affects not just India but many other nations as well.

Trafficking is growing fast in all the countries of South Asia and around 1.5 lakh people are victims, he said.

Rajnath Singh said a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Bangladesh has been signed to check human trafficking.

“We also need to sign an MoU with Nepal too,” he added.

The Yogi Adityanath Government has ordered all the madarsas across the states to take the classes in Hindi and English medium and not in Urdu. The decision came after the recommendations of the Arbi-Farsi Urdu Madarsa Board.

Madarsas have been at the forefront of criticism over the curriculum of their teachings. They are schools for Islamic instruction which deprives the students of the career-driven subjects like Mathematics, Science, English and Social Science. The government has also ordered to introduce all these subjects in the curriculum.

The order was one of the promises of CM Yogi Adityanath to make his vision of modern madarsa true. Earlier, he had rejected the demand of shutting down of Madarsas stating that it will not help eradicate the basic problems and he further gave a view of modernized madarsa by including modern subjects. The recommendation, made on 15th May, also stated to follow the syllabus and books of NCERT. The suggestions were accepted by the cabinet on 22 May.
