TV investigation finds illegal Koranic boarding schools in Bulgaria

Free-of-charge education in the Koran is being offered at unregistered Muslim boarding schools in Bulgaria, according to a hidden-camera investigation by Nova Televizia, one of the country’s biggest television stations.

Children are given shelter, food, clothing and religious courses, with an offer to parents to send the children on for further training in Turkey, also free-of-charge, the television station said.

All of this is going on without the knowledge of state institutions, including Bulgaria’s State Agency for National Security and the State Agency for Child Protection, the report said.
