Srinagar: Police and CRPF personnel on Tuesday evening raided one of the leading religious seminaries, Madrasa Bab-ul-Uloom at Chanpora Srinagar.
Confirming the raid, the head of seminary Mir Sajad Rehmani said that the raids were conducted “only to harass the students and other staffers”.
Mir said that the police and CPRF surrounded the seminary at around 5.15 pm and “started asking absurd questions to the faculty, even alleging that we feed militants here.”
“They later searched our premises and detained two of our employees. It was after the locals intervened that they were released,” he said.
He slammed the government for “harassing the students” at the seminary he said has been “producing religious scholars for the past many years.”
He said that such actions will not achieve any objective and will only aggravate the crisis.
