'Several madrassas are being used as hubs of terrorism': Himanta Biswa Sarma after demolition of Barpeta Islamic school

Guwahati/UNI: Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, on Monday, said that many madrassas in the state are being used by some radical elements as the hub for terrorism.

Sarma made this statement while reacting to the recent demolition of madrassas in the state.

On Monday, a madrassa in the Barpeta district of Assam, which had alleged links with jihadi elements, was demolished by the administration.

“This is the second madrassa we have demolished in Assam as these institutions were being used as a hub for terrorism,” said Sarma.

The Assam chief minister further claimed that the madrassa in Barpeta, which has been demolished, was used as a training camp by Al-Qaeda.

"No academic activity was carried out at the demolished madrassa in Barpeta," the CM claimed.

The madrassa was located in the Joshihatapara area in the Barpeta district of Assam.

Notably, a Bangladeshi national named Saiful Islam alias Harun Rashid alias Mohammad Suman, with links to ABT, had set up the Shaikh Hind Mahmudul Hasan Jamiul Huda madrassa in Barpeta district of Assam in 2019.

Saiful Islam was arrested by the police in Assam last month.
