Abstract:

Madrasah Legacy: Its Boom and Transformation in Pakistan:

The Madrasah (pl. Madaaris; faith-based Islamic religious institution) has always been a prestigious and important institution for the Muslim world and has politically and socially served the Muslim community through the ages; however, its role has come under critical scrutiny in the contemporary Islamic world, especially in Pakistan. Madaaris have been under limelight, especially after 9/11, for their alleged role in teaching fundamentalism and therefore terrorism. Different debates and discourses consider Madrasah as terrorists’ breading ground and its graduates to be global security risks. The counter argument proposes Madaaris to be safe-guarding Muslim culture and heritage and providing education to the dis-enfranchised groups without any burden on the exchequer. Furthermore, in-spite of all such severe criticism the number of Madaaris and their student enrollment could not be curtailed; instead of formal public schools, hundreds of thousands of Pakistani parents still send their children to Madaaris for education. There are many what, how, and why questions out there which need to be answered.

The paper illuminates the facts and examines the claims regarding Madrasah (institution and its student body) boom in Pakistan. Through an in-depth analysis of the existing literature, debates and discourse; based on empirical data, this paper examines the veracity and depth of the arguments regarding Madrasah rapid growth in Pakistan. The paper concludes that the current Madrasah (institution and student body) boom, to a greater extent, is rooted in multiple political, social, cultural, economical and religious reasons and events, which are often ignored by the contemporary scholars and researchers.
