Guwahati: Assam Director General of Police (DGP) Bhaskarjyoti Mahanta on Sunday asked madrassas, operating in the state, to upload their rules and regulations online.
Mahanta asked them during a meeting with various Islamic organizations across the state where he also sought their support in curbing terror.
''There are thousands of private Madrassas in the state. All do their work based on different rules according to their beliefs, we asked all of them to upload their rules online and also give some time to them for uploading their rules,'' he added.
He further said that without their (Islamic organizations across the state ) cooperation, we cannot bust al-Qaeda and other terrorist modules in the state.
''We requested him to extend their support and cooperation,'' he added.
In the past few days, there were reports that some terrorists had entered the state in the guise of religious teachers and were quietly increasing their violent and anti-state activities. Based on that, the police arrested 38 people belonging to Al-Qaeda Indian Continent (AQIS) and Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT).
On last Wednesday night, a person belonging to AQIS and ABT was arrested from Guwahati.
Meanwhile, authorities in Assam have demolished three madrassas in three different districts following allegations that their premises were being used for terrorist activities.
The Assam DGP Bhaskarjyoti Mahanta also informed that no review was being carried out on how madrasas are run in the state.
Minority communities such as Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind, Ahl al-Hadij, Ahle Sunnat Jamaat and Nadwa were present during the meeting.
They assured their full support against the people indulging in anti-national activities.
