CM Yogi Adityanath’s big move – Survey of madrasas will be done across UP
The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh has ordered to conduct of a survey in unrecognized madrasas to ascertain information on the number of students, teachers, curriculum, and its affiliation with any non-government organization. The purpose behind the survey of unrecognized madrasas is to ensure the basic facilities for the students.
Uttar Pradesh Minister of State for Minority Welfare, Muslim Waqf and Waqf Department, Danish Azad Ansari, said that the order also gives maternity leave and child care leave to women employees working in madrasas in the light of the rules applicable in the Department of Secondary Education and Basic Education.
All district magistrates have been issued instructions regarding the survey. The survey of unrecognized madrasas will be completed by October 5 by teams that will include officials of the Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM), Basic Shiksha Adhikari (BSA), and District Minority Officers.
Once the survey is conducted, the report will be handed over to the Additional District Magistrate (ADM) after which ADM will present the consolidated reports to the District Magistrates (DMs).
Meanwhile, AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi slammed Uttar Pradesh’s BJP government for its decision to conduct a survey of unrecognized madrasas in the state and termed the move as harassment of Muslims.
The Hyderabad MP said the state government has no right to interfere in the functioning of these madrasas as they don’t receive any funds either from the state government or from the Centre.
