Madrasa - An Islamic School to Learn 'Ignorance'
There are many incidents where the keepers of Islam have shown their merciless and cruel treatment towards children - suicide bombers of Palestine, camel jockeys in Middle East and Islamic schools all over the world.
Madrasas are the Islamic schools for study of pure Islamic religion. The culprits are the religious teachers and the victims include helpless innocent underage students. The sacred teacher-student relationship is given a new definition in these Islamic schools....
Following is the bitter experience of a 12 years old madrasa student from Kenya who was rescued during January 2003.
"It was a terrible place, they chain both legs and both arms, sometimes hands and feet together, Theybeat us at lunch time, dinner time and grab both legs and hands and give us lashes on the buttocks. We sleep in chains, eat in chains, and go to the toilets in chains. Sometimes we are hooked on the roof in chains and left hanging. We have to memorize the Koran and get punished if we cannot recite the Koran in the classroom".
This is the 'legal punishment' for a student who cannot memorize Koran in Arabic language. It is legal because the great founder of Islam has legalized it.
Let's see, what illiterate, child rapist prophet of Islam advised on child-upbringing and education.
Narrated Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-'As:
The Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) said: Command your children to pray when they become seven years old, and beat them for it (prayer) when they become ten years old; and arrange their beds (to sleep) separately. (Sunan Abu Dawud Book 2, Number 0495)
This is what Prophet Muhammad had prescribed for children. He was very concerned about their religious upbringing...
The ulema, Imams and Maulanas and other religious teachers of Islam may not have advanced the cause of human knowledge by a single inch since the birth of Islam, but they should get some credit; they have done enough research, developed many ideas and have 'doctorates' in the fields of torture and human exploitation in the name of religion....
The irony of the situation is that many students outside Arab even do not know what is written in Koran. They just recite the Koran in Arabic, but they do not understand the contents. They don't know even what they have studied. Is not it bizarre?
