In a controversial statement, prominent Muslim body Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind has said that there should be separate schools for girls and boys, reports Times Now.

It also said that non-Muslims should also refrain from giving co-education to their daughters to "keep them away from immorality and misbehaviour". The statements were issued after the working committee meeting of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind (Maulana Arshad Madani faction).

The top Muslim body urged the influential and wealthy people to help construct separate schools for boys and girls in their respective areas.

Maulana Arshad Madani also claimed that no religion teaches immorality and obscenity.

"Immorality and obscenity is not a teaching of any religion. It has been condemned in every religion of the world because these are the things that spread misbehaviour in the society. Therefore, we will also ask our non-Muslim brothers to refrain from giving co-education to their daughters to keep them away from immorality and misbehaviour, and to set up separate educational institutions for them," Madani said.

The meeting of the working committee of the Jamiat was held on Monday to discuss the ways to reform society.
