B Upendran | HENB | Bengaluru | March 27, 2022:: Karnataka chief minister Basavaraj Bommai’s political secretary and MLA from Honnani, M Panchaksarya Renukacharya on Saturday stoked a fresh controversy as he said he would urge the chief minister and the education minister of Karnataka to ban madrassas (Islamic Seminary) as they are only creating anti-national elements. The comment comes amid the ongoing hijab row in the state for some time. The Karnataka high court, in its recent ruling, has upheld the state government’s order on the hijab ban in educational institutions.
“I ask Congress leaders why do we need madrasas in place of schools? What do they propagate in madrasas? They propagate instigation to innocent kids. Tomorrow, they will go against our country and they will never say Bharat Mata ki Jai,” Renukacharya said.
“They are teaching these kinds of lessons at madrasas. I am requesting the Chief Minister and education minister to ban madrasas. Don’t we have other schools where Hindu and Christian students study? You can’t teach anti-national lessons here. Madrasas should be banned or made to teach the syllabus what we teach in other schools,” the rulling BJP’s senior party member and MLA Renukacharya said.
Earlier, education minister BC Nagesh said madrassa students in the state are not getting contemporary education and if madrassas demand, then the government is ready to offer uniform education to all.
The political atmosphere in Karnataka is heated because of several incendiary remarks exchanged amid the hijab row. The BJP MLA, Renukacharya who also serves as the chief minister’s political secretary, lashed out at the Congress over the hijab row, accusing the party of fabricating the issue and playing vote-bank politics. He also questioned the need for madrasas.
He also criticized the calls for state-wide bandh to protest the Karnataka High Court’s verdict in the hijab row, slamming the organizations that called the bandh as “anti-national”.
“Some anti-national organizations have called for Karnataka bandh. Can government tolerate this? Is this Pakistan, Bangladesh, or Islamic country? Won’t tolerate this. Congress leaders defended this on floor of the House,” Renukacharya said.
The political discourse in Karnataka has been highly polarized in the wake of the hijab row. On March 15, the state’s high court dismissed a batch of petitions filed by Muslim girl students seeking the right to wear hijabs in classrooms. In its ruling, the bench noted that hijab “does not make up an essential religious practice in the Islamic faith”.
