Against co-education, not women’s education: Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind

New Delhi, 9/1: The Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind has claimed that Muslim girls are being targeted with the temptation of apostasy being strengthened due to the co-education system, while asserting that it is against co-education and not education for women.

The president of the prominent Muslim body, Maulana Arshad Madani, has also claimed that religious extremism is being encouraged in the country to divert people’s attention from economic problems.


“This game of dividing people on the basis of religious hatred and sectarianism will destroy the country. One cannot be led astray from the real issues for a long time. Instead of politics, if employment resources are not created, jobs are not given to educated youngsters, then the day is not far when these youngsters will be seen on the streets protesting,” Madani said while addressing a meeting of the Jamiat’s working committee on Sunday.


Claiming that the temptation of apostasy is spreading rapidly in the country, he alleged that it is aimed at Muslims in a planned manner, under which women and girls from the community are being “targeted”.
