Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind Chief Advocates Separate Schools for Muslim Girls After Class 8, Citing Safety Concerns

In a conference of west Uttar Pradesh office-bearers, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind chief Maulana Syed Arshad Madani urged members of the Muslim community to establish separate schools for girls after Class 8, expressing concerns about their safety in co-educational institutions.

Maulana Nazar, the vice president of Jamiat’s state chapter, confirmed Madani’s remarks, emphasizing the need to safeguard the well-being of Muslim daughters.

According to Nazar, the call for separate schools was prompted by worries over the targeted harassment of Muslim girls in mixed-gender educational settings.

“We are worried for our daughters’ safety because in the past a few organisations had announced monetary support and free accommodation for six months if a Hindu persuaded a Muslim girl to marry him,” he said, adding that such a trend was dangerous for brotherhood and harmony in society.

The conference, attended by at least 1,500 delegates from 17 districts of western Uttar Pradesh, covered various topics including the eradication of communalism, environmental protection, voter awareness campaigns, and the addition of new names to voter lists.
