About the Arabic Schools and Madrasa Schools which have been alleged to spreading extremism…

It must be emphasized that any of the Arabic Schools or Madrasa Schools which have been alleged to be socializing the Islam extremist ideologies are not implemented or monitored by the Ministry of Education. It was observed recently that some groups and individuals issuing statements saying that these schools have been established under the Ministry of Education and therefore the Ministry of Education is responsible for the teachings of extremist ideologies in these schools.

All these statements are baseless and we emphasize that these Arabic Schools or Madrasa Schools are not been implemented in any of the places belonging to national schools, provincial schools, government approved private schools, special assisted schools or Pirivenas that come under the control of the Ministry of Education. It has been further confirmed by the officials and we also inform that the Ministry of Education does not have any authority to monitor these places.
