How many madrasas are there in India?


Not too many people know the fact that madrasa is the Arabic word for any type of educational institution.  Keep in mind that in India, there are around 30,000 operating madrasas.  Needless to say, the majority of these schools follow the Hanafi school of thought.  It is interesting to know the fact that one of the most notable of these madrasas is represented by Darul Ulum Holocombe.  Keep in mind that in the West, the word usually refers to a specific type of religious school or college for the study of the Islamic religion.
