Madrasa teacher in Kashmir held for sexually assaulting a minor student

The Jammu and Kashmir police has arrested a madrasa teacher from the Baramulla district in North Kashmir, over charges of sexually assaulting a minor boy.

It has been alleged that a student of Madrasa Darul-Hudda situated in Nowpora Jageer village, was called by the accused teacher to his room after the morning prayer and then was sexually assaulted. The boy has alleged that this act took place while the other students were in the Masjid studying the Quran.

As per the complaint, this incident took place on 20th December, and has now come to light after the victim and his father registered a complaint in this matter on 28th January.

The police as a result recorded the witness statements and lodged a case against the madrasa teacher under section 377 and 506 of Ranbir Penal Code (RPC). Raids were later carried out to arrest the teacher, but he continued to evade arrest. He was finally nabbed on Sunday.

Such a case of sexually assaulting minor boys had also emerged from Kashmir last September.

It was reported that a local Maulvi in Kashmir had been accused of raping scores of minor boys under the pretext of summoning djinns and driving away ‘evil eye’. The Kashmir Police had booked Aijaz Shaikh, popularly known as Maulvi Saab amongst the locals, under section 377 of the state’s Ranbir Penal Code.

The madrasas too in the recent days have been under scrutiny over charges of its teachers sexually assaulting students.

In January, four Muslim clerics had been arrested from Bihar’s Purnia region for raping and murdering a minor girl who used to be a student there. As per the report, one of the accused raped her for over an year and when he discovered that she was pregnant, he and his accomplices decided to hatch a conspiracy to eliminate her.

In the same month it emerged that a few Muslim politicians from Maharashtra’s Marathwada region, were trying to save a Madrassa cleric who was accused of raping a 12 year old girl. Besides this, the cleric was also accused of molesting another minor. The politicians were later arrested.

In December, the UP police had raided a Madrasa in Lucknow’s Shahadatganj area, where girls were allegedly held hostage and molested by the Madarsa’s manager. A total of 51 girls were rescued by the police during the raid and the manager was also arrested.
