Abstract

The Madaris that is being propagated after 9/11 as “both ideologically activist and militant”, had been established and developed excellent traditions in South Asia, engaged deliberately in delivering religious education, strengthening Islamic values and most significantly imparting training to the eventual candidates of civil society. This research reveals that political or social violence or militancy is more than a religious one. It further reveals that social behaviors, are becoming more intolerant due to different reasons that causes violence in society more than religious behaviors. The studies also depict that the regions having more religious institutions or Madaris have less violence or militancy as compared to those regions having less Madaris. Moreover, the reasons that are proliferating violent attitudes, are also found out. The government, Ulema and society all are responsible and suffering loss. All should play a role to convert violent attitudes into peaceful and demonstrative one.
