Muslim Religious and Cultural Affairs Director M.R.M.Malik said that there are1669 Islam ‘Madrasa’ schools and 317 Arabic Schools registered under the Department of Muslim religious and Cultural Affairs all over the country. 

 He added that although ‘Madrasa’ and Arabic schools which teach Islam traditions and customs are registered by his department, his department is not entrusted with the supervision of these schools and they are being done by their respecting governing bodies. 

When inquired from the director as to whether there was information about any extremist religious teachings in those schools, he said that the syllabus of those schools is checked at the time of registration of those schools. In spite of the fact that it has been mentioned in the documents about the religious teachings that are being taught, he said he was not aware if extremist teachings were carried out on individual basis.
