The Congress Party accused Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of not respecting any religion a day after Uttar Pradesh government barred 46 madarsas from getting a grant. Congress leader, Ghulam Nabi Azad said that the saffron party does not respect any religion.

“The basic difference between our and BJP’s ideology is that the Congress party respects every religion but BJP and its leadership do not support this,” he said.

On Wednesday, the Yogi government stopped grants to 46 madarsas across the state after irregularities were reported in their working. The grant to these 46 defaulter madrasas was stopped from April 2017.

The madarsas whose grant were stopped by the government are located in Kanpur, Kushinagar, Kannauj, Mau, Azamgarh, Maharajganj, Siddhartha Nagar, Mahoba, Shravasti, Banaras, Faizabad, Ghazipur, Jaunpur, Barabanki, Sant Kobirnagar, Jhansi districts.

Now, 560 madarsas are given grants by the state government across UP.

A committee comprising district magistrate, district inspector of schools and district minority welfare officers was probing the case. After a detailed two months analysis, the government barred the 46 madrassas to get the government grant.
