All madarsas will also become normal schools
Guwahati: Madarsas in assam state will not ;longer get government money. The
BJP-ruled government in Assam has taken a major decision regarding madarsas.
The government has decided to discontinue religious education with government
money. Assam government says that there will no longer be wasteful of public
money. The Assam government has said that there is no provision of religious
education with public money. This order was also applicable to Sanskrit schools
in Assam, but today a government official said that Sanskrit school does not
impart religious education, hence Sanskrit school will not be closed. The teacher
is studying all subjects including Sanskrit.
The Sanskrit language, known as Dev Bhasha, must be promoted, officials said.
The Assam government said that we have decided to convert all madarsas schools
into high schools and higher secondary schools. On the decision to close the
madarsas, the education minister said that there is no provision to use public
money to give religious education, so now they will be closed. Himant Vishwa
Sharma said, ‘It is not the government’s job to teach religion, religious scripture,
Arabic or any other language for religious purposes in any madrasa school. If an
NGO or social organization arranges funds for these schools, I have no objection
to this. He said that but these NGOs can also be given the right to run such
schools according to a rule. He said that if funds are given by the state
government to teach the Quran in madarsas, then we have to teach Gita, Bible as
well. Therefore, they are being shut down.
