It is well known fact, that in India Muslims are usually called as backward people or the victims in hands of Hindus as they are minority. This is done as a vote politics or by pseudo-secular Indians, who are bound to appease Muslims at any cost. Common mass readily believe that Muslims are victims and backward people. But no one ever tries to find a reason why are they backward?
It is very true what Dr. Subramanian Swamy said, “How can Muslims be victims and backward class people, when they ruled India for 800 years.” I agree with him completely, they must be the ruling people, as they ruled India for 800 years and treated Hindus and Sikhs as the 3rd class citizen. There must some reason why Muslims are backward people. Its not because of Hindus, or Sikhs, or Jains, or Christians, its only because of the ideology they follow. Read the following report:-
Shabana Rizvi, 17, nervously shakes her legs as she talks. She is overshadowed by her eldest brother, Meer, and appears apprehensive to voice her opinion in his presence. She glances in his direction after every sentence she speaks, awaiting his reaction.
When he disapproves, Rizvi is quickly warned to choose her words more carefully.
This isn’t unusual for young Shiite Muslim women living on the Arab Lane in the Johnson Market in Bangalore, India.
In a rare moment apart from her sibling, Rizvi expresses a lifelong desire for a formal education and a career in fashion design.
The men in her family, however, decided long ago that she wouldn’t learn how to read and write or solve mathematical equations. Instead, she was forced to join an Islamic school, called a madrassa, for girls, where she learned about Islam, along with cooking, cleaning, sewing and how to prepare for important religious festivals.
Her mother, Marsia Fathima, supported the decision.
“I am proud of the fact that my daughter never stepped inside a school,” Fathima said. “She went to madrassas and attained her religious education there.”
India’s Ministry of Minority Affairs counts more than 1 million children who study solely at madrassas. The schools are partially funded by the Indian government but they don’t offer education in math, science, English or other standard subjects. This exacerbates already high unemployment rates among Muslims throughout India.
A report prepared by the ministry stated that 25 percent of Muslim children between the ages of 6-14 have either never attended school or drop out. Many Muslim children who do attend school go to madrassas instead of mainstream schools.
Still majority of Muslims don’t send their children to schools, instead they are sent to Madarssa for Islamic teachings of Quran and Hadiths. The above report clearly states that according to Minority Affairs Ministry, more than 1 million Muslim children are never sent to schools or colleges. Now can we expect them to earn their livelihood? Now read why are Muslim children sent to Madarssa instead of schools.
Inayet Ali Zaidi, a history professor at India Jamia Millia Islamia, a university in New Delhi, said teachers in Islamic schools are afraid of the changes because they may not have the skill sets to bring the schools into alignment with the government’s proposal.
Zaidi said they are also scared that more well-educated students will choose to give up Islam.
“The teachers of madrassas fear that modernization would make students leave their religion,” he said. “What they don’t realize is that modernization would bring them closer to Islam.”
“What should we teach our children?”, his response was swift and unequivocal — “The seerah (biography of the Prophet) and nasheeds (devotional songs of praise). If your kids love the Prophet, they will automatically love Allah.”
