The Assam government on Wednesday morning ordered the demolition of a madrasa in the Bongaigaon district for allegedly being associated with “a terror organization.”
The district administration alleged that the premises of Markazul MaArif Quariayana Madrasa were being used for terror activities.
On Tuesday, authorities evacuated at least 224 students from the building. The police searched the premises and found certain documents allegedly associated with an organisation named Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT).
It may be noted that this is the third Madrassa to be demolised this month.
On August 30, the Goalpara district police conducted a search operation and supposedly seized several key documents including one leaflet of terror Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT) in Bengali language and one logo suspected to be of AQIS.
On the same day, the Assam government demolished another Madrasa by the name Shaikhul Hind Mahmudul Hasan Jamiul Huda Islamic Academy in Barapeta district. It was alleged that the institution was constructed on government land and had terror links.
Earlier this month the Jamiul Huda Madrasa in Moirabari area of the state’s Morigaon district was razed down on the charges that it was associated with Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS).
