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.
