Ghaziabad madrasa where minor girl was raped, gets shut down for lack of permission

The Ghaziabad madrasa where a minor girl was raped, has now been shut down owing to its lack of permission to operate, as reported by Hindustan Times.

The rape which took place on 21 April, has seen a youth and Muslim cleric being accused of the crime. The incident had later taken a turn for the worse when Islamist trolls had demanded that the minor victim is married off to her rapist, which was also echoed by a student Congress leader. Such a targeted harassment of the girl by these Islamist trolls had left the family traumatised.

As reported, the madrasa which falls under the Sahibabad locality, came under scrutiny after the rape, which resulted in the district minority welfare office conducting an inspection of the office. During the inspection, documents regarding the institution were sought from the NGO which operated it.

But it was later found that no permission was obtained from the minority welfare department to operate the madrasa, with its authorities have only put up a board which called the building a madrasa.

As per Sonu Kumar who is the district minority welfare office, about 4-5 minor students from Bihar were residing in the madrasa building, who have now been sent home.

A Patrika report has claimed that Delhi’s crime branch had analysed the documents related to the madrasa and found that the license of its parent NGO had expired on 30 April. Following this, the madrasa was shut down by the authorities on Tuesday. Besides this, the loudspeaker atop the building was pulled down and restrictions were imposed on carrying out any sort of activities on the premises.

An Amar Ujala report though claims that the operators of the madrasa situated in Nilmani colony were asked to furnish all the registration papers by Monday, which they failed to do. Hence the operators themselves proceeded to shut shop on Tuesday before a team of authorities could reach the spot.

This report also quotes Sonu Kumar as explaining that the NGO named Mehboob Ilani and Sabri welfare society’s registration didn’t allow it to operate the madrasa and a masjid. Besides this, he stated that the NGO’s licence too had expired on 30 April.
