I don’t know the truth about what goes on in Madrassas.
But I’m certainly not going to regard this blatant scaremongering propaganda as “evidence”. Where were the declarations by ex-students or infiltrators with hidden cameras? Where was the “case for the defence”? And there is one.
In most cases, the Madrassa is the only education on offer for the young males it recruits. It also feeds them and even houses them, reducing the burden on the families. It teaches the conservative orthodoxy the parents know and endorse.
