Madarasas asked to celebrate I-Day with  traditional fervour

Friday, 09 August 2019 | PNS | Lucknow

The Uttar Pradesh government has directed all madarasas in the state to celebrate Independence Day with traditional fervour and remember the martyrs after hoisting the national flag.

UP Madarasa  Board’s registrar  SN Pandey, in a circular issued to all the district minority welfare officers, said the national flag is to be hoisted at 0800 hours at all the madarasa along with singing of the national anthem.

Thereafter, the students and teachers would organise programmes on national integration and pay tributes to the martyrs and freedom fighters. 

The madarasas can also hold sports meet and other programmes related to martyrs and their life history.

On the occasion, the students would also plant saplings for a green environment.

The circular also made it clear that the Madarasa  Board would check the programmes held in madarasas and the best one would be awarded.

In 2017, a controversy broke out when the Bharatiya Janata Party government ordered videography of the Independence Day function organised at madarasas.

There are around 16,000 madarasas in UP but majority of them are not recognised by the government.
