Children of both Hindus and Muslims are being taught each other’s religion in a madrasa in Jaunpur to spread the message of brotherhood and peace between the two communities.
The madrasa was built in 1998 in Jalalpur’s Chawri Bazaar. It started with 25 Muslim kids and gradually evolved into an entire community of Hindus and Muslims.
While Hindu kids are seen learning Urdu, Arbi, Farsi, Kalma, Nath Sharif, Muslim kids, on the other hand, are seen learning Sanskrit and ganesh shlokas.
“The only motive to form the madarsa was to promote peace and harmony between the two religions, and this rare sight is what one gets to see here,” said madrasa head Mohammad Siyakat.
