Parents of runaway madrasa boys wanted them chained

Lucknow: The mother of one of the two minor boys who had run away from a madrasa in chains said nobody in her family had ever gone to school.

She wanted her son to go to school and study but the boy, she said, indulged in wrong habits. Hence she instructed the madrasa teacher to strictly discipline him.

A video of the boys, aged 13 and 14, emerged on Friday with their feet chained by the Maulana, who wanted to stop them from running away.

The boys stole away from the madrasa with their feet still in chains and headed from the religious school in Gosainganj to their native village of Barabanki 35 km away.

The villagers were astounded to see the boys in chains on Friday afternoon and they freed the boys by cutting the chains.

The video of them in chains went viral coming to the notice of the police who reached the madrasa and detained the maulana Riyaza.

Now parents of both the boys have claimed they had asked the teacher to chain them as they used to run away from the madrasa, according to IANS.

The parents in a written submission to the local police admitted to having asked the Maulana to treat the boys strictly.

They did not want the police to initiate any legal action against the madrasa teacher.

Police official Shailendra Giri of Gosainganji station said the younger boy, aged 13, was sent to the madrasa for better ' Deeni Talim", religious learning, according to The Indian Express.

The boy's parents reportedly said he had come home for Ramzan but was loath to return to the madrasa.

Dr Shuchita Chaturvedi of UP State Child Right Child Protection Comission said legal action was suggested, despite the crime was committed with the consent of the parents.

The police would probe if the Maulana was treating other students similarly as well as the madras was on the government panel.
