New Delhi, Feb 10: Amidst the huge rise of radicalisation in the country, a new worry for the security agencies is the large number of Mosques and Madrasas that are coming up along the border areas.
The Intelligence Bureau has learnt that a large number of Mosques and Madrasas have mushroomed in Nepal very close to the Indian border. An IANS report while citing sources said that the number of Mosques has gone up from 760 in 2018 to 1,000 in 2021. On the other hand the number of Madrasas has gone up to 645 in 2021 as opposed to 508 in 2018.
This is clearly the handiwork of the ISI and these Mosques and Madrasas are set up close to the Indian with the sole intention of radicalising and instigating the people against the country. Not only have these places managed to instigate and radicalise the youth in large numbers, but they have been hiding spots for criminals indulging in crime, terror and fake currency racketeering from the states of Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Bihar.
