Re: 7,000 Madrassas as CBSE affiliated schools: HRD Minister, India
Dear Mubashir and Manoj, THe issue here is the sensitivity of some of our minority groups to any interference in their own cultural values and system. Also, the dependence and trust many people lay in the local, similar community leaders who incite them on important topics like education etc. This resuts in actually stabbing the same people in their backs whom such leaders depend upon for votes. Such local leaders' constant feeding the people with morale lowering statements that "you are a minority", etc. actually fuels the belief that they are a minority first and a nation later.THis is where they win first. The votes come rushing in later. Arjun SIngh is a smart and seasoned politician. It would suit him to keep such innocent and misled people in their same situation.
THe problem must be addressed from within the community and its leaders itself. In fact the muslims can easily challenge leaders like Arjun Singh and seek out similar education boards as the CBSE etc. regards roopa
