New Delhi, Oct.30 (ANI): In a scathing attack on the way some Madrassas are imparting education across the country, Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh Chief Mohan Bhagwat on Friday said that the Madarsas, the Islamic education institutions, were encouraging militancy in the country.

Bhagwat noted that unlike the Islamic educational institutions, the Hindu religious schools teach and propagate Indian culture.

"The education that we are giving and the education that we have received, is not for doing atrocities on the people. Our education is not like Madarsas (Islamic educational institutions), which encourage militancy. We consider everyone as ours. We educate about our culture," said RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat while addressing activists and volunteers of RSS at New Delhi on Friday.

RSS chief's statement has come at a time when Ministry of Human Resource Development has mooted Central Madarsa Board Bill 2009 under which the structure of Muslim religious education would be brought at par with the modern education system.

The move to set up a Central Madarsa Board was initiated following the National Commission for Minorities Educations ecommendation made in April 2007. (ANI)
