Assam Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma mentioned on Tuesday that if the state authorities is bearing the price of educating the Quran in madrassas, then Bible and Bhagavad Gita must also be taught by the federal government. Sarma mentioned, “In my view, educating ‘Quran’ cannot occur at the price of authorities cash, if we’ve to take action then we must also train each the Bible and Bhagavad Gita. So, we need to carry uniformity and cease this follow.”
He introduced that each one the state-run madrassas shall be transformed into common faculties because the Assam goverment shall be shuting madrassas down. In the meantime, in sure instances academics shall be transferred to state authorities faculties.
“All State-run madrassas shall be transformed into common faculties or in sure instances academics shall be transferred to state-run faculties and madrassas shall be shut down. A notification shall be launched in November,” mentioned Sarma.
The choice to close down state-run madrassas was taken throughout a dialogue on budgetary allocation for the training division when some legislators have been demanding provincialisation of madrasas.
Apart from, Sanskrit tols (faculties) may also be shut down because it proceeds to clamp down on non secular training with public cash.
Assam has 614 recognised madrasas, and 17 are Urdu medium.
