New Delhi, (13/6/2019): The Modi government in the centre has made a big decision about education in madarsas. According to this decision, the madarsas will now be linked to mainstream education. Union Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi informed about this today. This decision of the central government has been welcomed by the Chief Imam of All India Imam Organization Umar Ilyasi.
Umar Ilyasi said, “It is not the time to fight on the basis of religion. There is a lack of awareness among the Muslims. Training of madarsa teachers will help in the development of the country”.
He further said, “There is a lack of education in the Muslims. The previous governments used us only for votes and it is unfortunate that they did nothing for the education of the Muslims. I thank the government and minority minister for this steps taken to uplift the madarsas”.
He said that “the girls of our community were unable to complete their education due to poverty and now they will be able to complete their education. Muslims should increase their participation as much as possible in the madarsas”.
Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi while presiding over the 112th Operations Council and 65th General Assembly meeting of Maulana Azad Education Foundation said that “a large number of madarsas present in the country will be linked to formal and mainstream education, so that the children of madarsas can also contribute to the development of society”.
According to the information the plan will start from next month. Mainstream education should be provided in Hindi, English, Math, Science, Computer etc. in Madarsas”.
