The Shia Waqf Board has reportedly written to Narendra Modi saying that the education in madrassas is increasing terrorism.

In the letter, the Board’s chairman Waseem Rizvi also said that the madrassas should be converted to convent schools which offer an optional subject of Islamic education.

Talking to CNN-News18, Rizvi said that most of the madrassas in the country are not recognised and the Muslim students studying in such institutions are moving towards unemployment.

He also told ANI that madrassas should be affiliated to CBSE or ICSE.
