ncpcr: NCPCR asks UP govt to probe Darul Uloom’s ‘objectionable’ web content


The website of India’s largest Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband has drawn the ire of the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights for its content, especially the portion asking parents to discourage their daughters from studying in co-educational schools and avoid textbooks with pictures of living things.

The body has written to the UP government alleging that these instructions are violative of the rights of the children and has sought immediate removal of such a content.

“We have given the DM 10 days to look into the matter and remove all the objectionable content. The seminary is an influential voice for Muslims across the country and has to follow the law of the land,” NCPCR chairperson Priyank Kanoongo told ET.

The NCPCR has also asked the state government to take necessary action against the body for allegedly violating provisions of the Constitution, IPC, Juvenile Justice Act, 2015, and Right to Education Act, 2009.

Darul Uloom Deoband spokesperson Ashraf Usmani told ET that they haven’t received any notice from the DM yet and the highest possible committee under the VC will look into the matter.
