The AIUDF general secretary said, “The survey of private madrassas is to be completed in six months. Those who do not have students are merged. We are focusing on the infrastructure of madrasas. Police verification is required if outsider is appointed as teacher, it is common practice.
On Wednesday, the state government asked all madrassas to provide every detail, including the profile of teachers, the location of the institution and the number of students enrolled. The said details were to be submitted by December 4.
The deadline was fixed in an official meeting on Wednesday, which was attended by Director General of Police Bhaskarjyoti Mahanta, Director of Secondary Education Mamta Hojai, representatives of madrassas and other government officials.

Among all the details, the profile of the teachers is an important detail. Earlier this year, several teachers of madrassas were arrested for alleged links with al-Qaeda in the Indian subcontinent (AQIS) and Ansarullah Bangla Team (ABT).
It was decided in the meeting that there should be a distance of at least 3 km between two madrasas and each of them should have 100 students. Muslim educational institutions will be merged if the guidelines are not followed.
