Calling co-education “un-Islamic”, a noticeable madarsa in Bihar has banned confirmation of the young ladies into the establishment and even banished their entrance into its grounds.
Issuing a diktat as of late, Madarsa Azizia, placed at Biharsharif in Nalanda area, has halted enlistment of young lady understudies on the ground that co-training of young men and young ladies was against the essential principles of the Islam.
Mohd Mumtaz Alam, head administrator of the madarsa, said that the choice had been brought in keeping with the mandate of the madarsa organization. He said that the Islam did not allow co-instruction of young men and young ladies under one top.
S.m. Sharaf, secretary (mutawalli) of the Soghra Wakf Estate Committee, which runs the madrasa, said that a choice to end co-training had been taken since it was against the religion. “Young men and young ladies can’t mull over together under one top,” he said. “Furthermore, male instructors shouldn’t instruct the female understudies.”
He said that no enrolment of young ladies would be conceivable at the madarsa until divided courses of action were made for them on the facilities.
Sharaf said that the choice of his antecedents to permit coeducation at the madarsa was totally un-Islamic. “I don’t know under what circumstances the young ladies were permitted to join the madarsa yet it is unlawful according to the Islamic laws,” he said.
The secretary said that instruction for ladies at the madrasa would continue after divided game plans were made for them. “Ladies instructors would be selected for them yet it will take eventually,” he said.
The choice came as an impolite jar to the young ladies who were enlisted there in the current session. Challenging against the move, they gathered outside the entryway of the madarsa on Monday requesting rollback of the choice. They were, be that as it may, not permitted to enter the yard.
They affirmed that the madarsa had made the backward stride during an era when the administrations and altruistic organizations were attempting to push young lady instruction over the world. They said that the young ladies, who had as of now been selected in the current scholarly session, were likewise not being permitted to go to their classes.
“We have been told that classes for young lady understudies would never again be held at the madarsa for the time being,” Farzana, an understudy, said. “This has put our future in question.”
The choice evoked sharp reaction from local people. “This foundation takes stipend from the Bihar government which has accomplished such a great deal for female training,” Mohd Murtaza, a nearby social laborer, said. “There is such a great amount of essentialness on the taleem (training) of young ladies in our religion but, they are continuously denied the chance to learn.”
