Indian Islamism - holding a country back
on: November 11, 2017, 16:33

Muslim faith schools in Uttar Pradesh will be required to teach English, maths and science subjects to secondary-school level in an attempt to equip students more effectively for the modern world, the Indian government has said.... source:

Uttar Pradesh has an estimated 19,000 faith schools, or madrasas, but most teach only Islamic theology. Even madrasas that do teach these [science] subjects – many are trying to modernise their curricula – make them optional at secondary school.

The result of wasting time on religion is clear enough....
Of all India’s religious communities, Muslims have the highest illiteracy rate (42.7%), the lowest share of people in work (33%), and the lowest level of enrolment in higher education (4.4%) – even though they comprise 14% of India’s population.

And the attitude to "honour" violence; freedom of speech and expression; women's rights and equality; and animal rights need to be straight before such individuals are not in conflict with universal human values and modern, decent society.
