Guwahati: Chief Minister of Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma has said that all teachers who came from outside Assam to teach in Madrassas in the state may be asked to appear “from time to time” in the nearest police station.

Sarma said that a checklist has been prepared for the Madrassas, though the state is yet to enter into an agreement with stakeholders, but things are moving in the right direction, PTI reported.

The Assam Police is working with Muslims in the state to “rationalize” Madrasa education, he said on Sunday.

Sarma said the police are coordinating with Bengali Muslims, who have a positive attitude towards education to create “a good environment” in the Madrassas.

Science and mathematics will also be taught as subjects in the Madrasas, and the right to education respected and a database of teachers maintained, he said.

“They should not be considered as enemies, instead we want them as stakeholders,” the chief minister added.
