Uttar Pradesh Minorities Welfare Minister Dharmpal Singh whereas talking to the reporters stated, “The reports on the survey of Madrassas in the state have come. Those linked to anti-national activities will be shut down. And also, the Madrassas which were functioning illegally will not be recognised. Those involved in anti-social activities will not be allowed to function”.
Last 12 months, the Uttar Pradesh Government began the method of conducting a survey of Islamic training establishments. The survey of unrecognised Madrassas was performed to guarantee the essential amenities of the scholars of Madrassas. In the survey that was performed CM Yogi Adityanath-led Government, it was discovered that extra that out of the 25,000 madrassas within the State, 8,449 weren’t recognised by the state Madrasa Board.
According to Dharmpal Singh, most madrasas had been discovered “illegal” in UP-Nepal border districts. It was reported that round 500 unrecognised madrasas had been present in Siddharthnagar, greater than 400 in Balrampur, 200 in Lakhimpur Kheri, 60 in Maharajganj, and 400 in Bahraich and Shravasti.
Soon after the Yogi Adityanath authorities had ordered the survey of unrecognised madrasas within the state, the Centre directed the state authorities for stopping scholarships to seminary college students and enrolled in lessons from one to eight, citing provisions of free training below the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009.
Last 12 months whereas talking to the media on the difficulty of the steps which might be being taken in opposition to the Madrassas, Singh had stated, “This (clamp down) was inevitable. Identifying unrecognised madrassas was the first step. They will not hesitate to shut down these institutions that are not dependent on the government and leave thousands of students rudderless. All this is politically motivated from the beginning itself and predictable.”
Moreover, in Madhya Pradesh, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, this 12 months, ordered to conduct of a survey of unrecognised Madrassas.
