Modernizing Madrasas to Tackle IS

  • Worried over the possibility of youngsters being influenced by extremist groups, the State chapter of Islamic Educational Board of India (IEBI) has shifted focus to modernizing madrasas and imparting academic knowledge as well as an understanding about what the Quran actually teaches.
  • This was said by IEBI president S.S.A. Khader while addressing a press conference here on Sunday.
  • He expects that all 10,000 madrasas in the state will be covered in 5 years.
