The Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind has claimed that Muslim girls are abandoning their religion, Islam, due to the co-education system, while asserting that it is against co-education and not education for women.

As per a PTI report, the president of the prominent Muslim body, Maulana Arshad Madani, has also claimed that religious extremism is being encouraged in the country to divert the attention of the public 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”.

If immediate and effective measures are not taken to prevent this temptation, the situation may become explosive in the coming days, Madani said.

“This temptation is being strengthened due to the co-education system and that is why we are opposed to it. The media presented our point in a negative way and advertised that Maulana Madani is against education for girls. While we are against co-education, we are not against education for girls,” he was quoted as saying in a statement issued by the Jamiat.

“Whatever we can do, we have to do now for the welfare of the country and its educational development,” Madani said.
