Upendra Bharti | HENB | Patna | June 8, 2021:: The roof of a madarsa in Bihar’s Banka district collapsed following a massive blast on Tuesday morning which also damaged nearby buildings. The madarsa is located under Nagar police station limits. At least half dozen people are reported to be injured in the incident, although the police are yet to confirm it. The Madarsa situated near a Mosque was apparently closed due to lockdown, but some suspicious activities were running there hidden.
Banka Nagar police station in-charge Shambhu Kumar said that a bomb exploded in a Madrasa, located near a mosque, on Tuesday morning in Navtolia area. The Madrasa building has been completely damaged in this incident.
The high-intensity explosion ripped through the madrasa (seminary) on Tuesday morning, killing an imam (religious teacher); injuring many and damaging other houses in the locality, police said.
“Madarasa wasn’t functional due to lockdown. We’re waiting for FSL team & bomb squad to arrive at spot. There is no evidence of any injured person at moment. Cause of blast is yet to be ascertained,” says Arvind Gupta, SP Banka.
The station in-charge told IANS that prima facie it appears to be a case of huge bomb blast. He said that a team of Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) is being called to probe the incident. Whether it was a case of bomb blast or a cylinder explosion, will be known only after investigation, police said.
The madrasa, which had close to 200 students, was shut on May 5 due to the Covid-induced lockdown. The deceased, identified as Mohammad Abdul Sattar Mobin, was from Jharkhand‘s Madhupur district and resided at the seminary as a caretaker.
The Madarsa education system in India has been criticized severally for its fundamental Islamic teaching. But, now the Banka explosion in Madarsa puts again a serious question mark that whether bomb making is imparted in the Islamic seminaries to fulfill the scope of Jihad in India or for a preparation of Ghazwa-e-Hind by storing bombs and explosives inside a mosque attached Madarsa!
After the Khagragarh Blast in West Bengal, a network of Madarsa bomb making was unearthed+. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) first tracked the presence of Islamic terror organization JMB in West Bengal after the Khagragarh blast (Burdwan) in 2004.
Interestingly, all the Muslim male members of Navtolia area left the place immediately after the blast only to avoid police arrest as they knew what was going there!
