An enormous factor in the State's nefarious agenda to introduce its state-version of Islam into Pakistan is the project of “mainstreaming” the madaris. Somehow, the present government has persuaded the largest networks of madaris representing the five major schools of thought (Barelawi, Deobandi, Salafi, Jamaati Islami and Shi'a) to sign on to their plan which requires all the madaris to not only register with the state but also adapt elements of the secular, state crafted curricula into their educational programs. I should point out that this is not altogether surprising as sadly the Ulama especially those in top positions who are close to the state and may be termed “quasi-functionaries” of the state are notorious for being short-sighted, naive and easily manipulated. The Usmani dynasty in particular, individuals related to Mufti Shabbir Usmani, such as Mufti Taqi Usmani, Mufti Rafi Usmani, etc., are in fact the greatest traitors to the cause of Islam in this country. The heads of the madaris networks have sold out the holy cause of the madrassa by signing on to the state's satanic program. Of particular concern to me is that all madaris which fail to register with the state and which fail to adapt the state's designated curriculum will be prevented from operating. Now perhaps the heads of the main networks of madaris were willing to overlook this naked assault on Islam because they are only concerned with their own respective networks and are willing to compromise in order to receive funding from the state and solidify their own positions.
As I've explained previously, the survival of Islam in this country is largely due to the madaris remaining free from corrosive state influence, being independent institutions that have been, until now, largely free to teach what they want. The so-called “privatization” of Islam is actually what has saved and preserved it from attempts by the forces of modernity and secularity to impose their own warped version of the faith (carefully crafted to suit their goals) onto the public. Once the dynamism of the madrassa has been neutralized by these forces of darkness, it will be extremely difficult to resist their drive to completely secularize society and sap the power and influence of Islam in peoples' daily lives. So I reiterate, we lovers of Islam, we Believers, we faithful and devoted servants of Allah Almighty, have to now start considering the State an antagonistic force that must be thwarted and resisted as much as possible.
