The Assam government has ordered the demolition of another private madrassa.This is the third madrassa in Assam, which is being demolished in a month in Assam after CM claims institutions are being used as ‘terror hubs’.

The Bongaigaon district administration has ordered the demolition of the madrassa.

According to the order from the Bongaigaon deputy commissioner’s office, the Markazul Ma-Arif Quariana Madrassa does not have enough emergency supplies to handle a fire or an earthquake. According to the administration, there is not enough open space on the campus of the university to be used in the event of a disaster.

According to a report from the district superintendent of police, the madrassa was home to 224 pupils, according to the deputy commissioner’s directive.

Except for a mosque that was situated in a different section of the madrassa complex, the authorities ordered the demolition of the entire building.

This is the third madrassa in the state to be destroyed this month as a result of increased operations by the Assam Police.

37 people have so far been detained by the police on suspicion of having connections to the AQIS and Ansarullah Bangla Team.

Earlier a madrassa in Barpeta district, which had allegedly sheltered two Bangladeshi members of Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) for four years, was demolished by the district administration on Monday.

Barpeta Superintendent of Police Amitabh Sinha had said, “Since this madrasa was built on government land, it was demolished in an eviction drive by Barpeta district administration.” Police personnel were deployed to maintain law and order.

On August 4, A madrassa in central Assam’s Morigaon area was destroyed by authorities after a teacher was detained for his alleged ties to terrorist organisations.

Additionally, the administration has made it necessary for imams travelling to Assam from other states to notify the local police and register on a government website.


  1. It’s a sad fact.
    Why raze the Madrasa?
    Let them roll in the primitive rote learning that keeps them engaged in a distorted vision of life. Hindu society should not endeavour to reform them.
    We shall provide all the assistance to Madrasa and make them wallow in poverty and backwardness.
    Madrasa rate great tool to keep them where they are- Status Quo of poverty and seclusion be maintained.
