Pune: A silent protest march against illegal Madrasas will be organised on August 3 from Hazrat Babajan Dargah to Police commissioner office in Camp. Few days back, a maulana of an orphanage-cum-madrasa on Katraj-Kondhwa road was arrested allegedly sexually abusing several minor boys.

A petition regarding the silent march was submitted to Pune city police on Monday. “There are about 60-65 illgeal Madrasas in Pune, where children are brought from Bihar, Bengal, Assam, Uttar Pradesh, after trafficking them. They are bought and sold. The agents and Maulanas who indulge in child trafficking must be punished after thorough enquiry in the running of these Madrasas. Also medical tests of all children studying in all Madarasa should be done”, the petition states.

The march will start at 3 pm from Babajan Dargah. People will walk via MG Road, and garland Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar statue before concluding the march at Police commissioner office.
