Madrasa teachers outside Assam should appear in police station, says Assam CM; “It’s not a foreign country,” replies Owaisi

“Assam is not a foreign country where Indians have to ask for your permission,” said AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi MP responding to Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma who has said that all teachers who came from outside Assam to teach in Madrasas in the state may be asked to appear “from time to time” in the nearest police station.

“Right to occupation, move & settle in any part of India is a fundamental right. What about teachers in RSS-run schools? What if other states start putting the same requirement on people from Assam?” asked Owaisi.

Sarma and Assam’s BJP government have been running a hate campaign against Madrasas in the northeastern state for last few years.

The BJP government claimed that its police cracked down on alleged modules of militant organisation Ansarul Bangla Team, and 51 Bangladeshis were discovered among the preachers at Madrasas.

Sarma said that a checklist has been prepared for the Madrasas, PTI reported.
