AIUDF Plans to Reopen 750 Madrasas in Assam, Ajmal Vows Legal Battle

Badruddin Ajmal

All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) chief Badruddin Ajmal has announced intentions to reopen 750 madrasas in Assam following the Lok Sabha election victory. Ajmal made this declaration in Karimganj, stating that the move would be pursued through legal means in the Supreme Court, citing the example of Uttar Pradesh where a similar attempt faced criticism from the Supreme Court.

The decision to reopen these madrasas comes in response to Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma’s actions to close or convert several madrasas into general schools during his tenure. Ajmal emphasized that the purpose of reopening these institutions would be solely for educational opportunities for students, particularly Muslim students who were affected by the closures.

Ajmal clarified that the challenge against the government’s actions would be through legal channels, stating, “Why did the government deprive lakhs of Muslim students to pursue education? Is it their right? Right to Education is our right. This is our right.”

Additionally, Ajmal, who is contesting the election from the Dhubri Lok Sabha seat, rallied support for his party candidate Sabul Islam Chowdhury in Karimganj. AIUDF is contesting in three out of 14 Lok Sabha seats in Assam. The polling for these seats is scheduled in three phases, with the BJP contesting in 11 seats, and its allies Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) and UPPL in two and one seat respectively.
