Delhi: Muslim Coaching Centre Owner ‘Beaten’ by Right-Wing Groups, FIR Filed for Alleged Forced Quran Reading

A Muslim man, Ibrar Ansari who runs a coaching centre called JMD (Join Mentors of Discipline) in Shakurpur, Delhi, was allegedly beaten by members of right-wing groups who alleged that Ibrar forcibly converted people to Islam.

In a video that surfaced online, Ibrar Ansari’s younger brother, Irfan alleges that Vishwa Hindu Parishad beat them up after a complaint made by one of the parents over a dispute about fees.

Irfan, the younger brother in his video, shows his injured brother and says “ My brother was beaten by the Tiger group and Vishwa Hindu Parishad. He was in ICU for some days after the incident. Now the Tiger group, VHP and parents of the students are threatening to kill us”.

Irfan alleges that the Police are not helping them and asking them to seek help from other places.

“We are living in fear. They are sending man after man to see if we are home to kill us. We are hiding in one of our relatives’ homes,” he stated seeking help from ‘The Bhim Army’/

On July 4th, Manoj Kumar Saroj, a father from the Dalit community, filed a complaint against teachers at the ‘Jai Mata Di’ coaching centre for allegedly forcing his sons to read the Quran.

Following his complaint, on July 7th, Subhash Place police registered an FIR (number: 492/2024) under sections 299 and 302 of the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita (BNS).

The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) issued a notice on July 8th to the District Magistrate, seeking an investigation report within three days.

Manoj alleged that his thirteen-year-old kid had been asking him to read Kalma and what the Quran was. When Manoj asked him about it, his son claimed that Rizwan, Absar, and Irfan, the coaching centre’s teachers, were making him read the Quran. He went on to say that his sons were being forced to recite the Kalma frequently.

Manoj, who enrolled his sons at a coaching centre also alleged discrepancies in its name after media coverage. Originally thought to be ‘Jai Mata Di,’ it was actually ‘JMD – Join Mentors of Discipline,’ linked to a long-established coaching centre. According to Manoj, the confusion arose despite images of Maa Saraswati on the banner, listing teachers including Ibrar, Rizwan, Ajay, Vikram, and Irfan.
