“Madrassas are meant to provide the education of terrorism in Bihar. Hence, we have demanded a ban on such institutions in Bihar,” said BJP MLA Hari Bhushan Thakur.

PATNA — A day after the explosion in a madrassa in Banka district, BJP MLA Hari Bhushan Thakur, known for making controversial statements, demanded that such educational institutions should be banned across the state.

“Madrassas are meant to provide the education of terrorism in Bihar. Hence, we have demanded a ban on such institutions in Bihar,” Thakur said.

The statement of the BJP legislator came at a time when educational institutions are shut due to the pandemic in the state. On Tuesday, an explosion occurred in the madrassa. The intensity of the explosion was such that the entire building collapsed to the ground. As the madrassa was shut due to the coronavirus no casualty has been reported.

“I want a thorough investigation into the incident to ascertain under what circumstance the explosion took place in it,” Thakur said.

Thakur is known for making controversial statements in the past. Earlier, he had alleged that the minority community is responsible for harassing Dalits in Kishanganj, Darbhanga, Purnea, Katihar, Jamui, Gopalganj. — IANS
