It is not a secret that the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party is known for its strong right-wing ideology. After it came to power it openly flaunted its stand. The much-talked-about Hijab row started in Karnataka, where it is in power. Though the saffron party did not start the row, many suspect its ideology behind this.

The likes of Yogi Adityanath, who carried the right wing to his sleeves are changing the names of places and monuments. The Bulldozer style he started spread to a few other BJP-ruled states. A few months back, Maharashtra changed the name of Aurangabad to Chhatrapati Sambhaji Nagar, after celebrated Maratha King Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj's son.

Coming to the northeast region, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma is leaving his mark. Political experts say that Sarma is the unsung warrior in Bharatiya Janata Party's victory in the states in North East.

He is leaving his mark on the state. Recently he started an exercise to crack down on child marriages. Hundreds of arrests are made. Though the Government is going ahead with that, many say that the BJP might be targeting a particular community.

Following the same, the Assam Chief Minister made a sensational statement that the government is planning to shut down all the madrassas in the state. He said that 600 madrassas were shut already and the balance would be closed at the earliest.

Adding further, the Assam Chief Minister said that India doesn't need Madrassas, we need universities, schools, and colleges to produce engineers and doctors. We don't need madrassas. We need engineers and doctors. New India doesn't need madrassas. It needs universities, schools, and college's the Chief Minister said.

In India, Hindu religious places are run by the governments, and the others are run by personal boards. But the system is different in Assam. The Himanta Biswa Sarma-led government brought a law that allows the government to take Madrassas into its control. While many of them were converted into schools, the rest of them were shut.

Himanta Biswa Sarma is saying that illegal migration is happening and that needs to be addressed and the decision is part of the efforts.
