Mehbooba demands white paper on Madrasa funding

‘Reputation of institutions compromised’
Bureau Report

Srinagar: Peoples Democratic Party today demanded a ‘white paper’ on the controversy over the release of central funds to Madrasas in the state. The party president Mehbooba Mufti said “this is a very serious issue as it involves not just huge financial transactions of dubious nature but also the reputation of one of the most respected institutions of our society,” in a statement here.
Mehbooba said like all other centrally sponsored schemes the state govt seems to have made a mess of the financial assistance released by government of India for the Madrasas in J&K which are established institutions of religious instruction. There is a huge gap between the amount released by Government of India and the funds acknowledged by the state govt, she said pointing out that the amount received reportedly by the Madrasas is even lesser than that. “Where has the money gone?” she asked saying some one in the government has to explain.

Mehbooba also said the obvious inconsistency in the financial allocations by the centre and its devolution to the ultimate users has a criminal implication and the government must fully investigate it and come out with facts and figures immediately. But, of equal importance is the fact that the highly respected institution of Madrasas in the state has been brought into disrepute. She said many leading institutions have already distanced themselves from the funding row and have categorically denied any receipts on that account. However in the process the prestige and reputation of the madrasa as an institution has suffered for which the government is solely responsible. “Though this government has caused immense damage to almost all institutions of the state, the latest victim, the madrasas should have been spared as they are generally run with community participation,” she added.

Mehbooba said it apparently looks that some of the institutions which have benefited from the funds might even be non existent. How and under whose authority have they received government money and whether any utilization certificates have been obtained needs to be known? She said the government must come out with the particulars of every institution that has been shown as having received funds from the government. (AIP News)
