Children need to be skilful as well in today’s modern times. While there is employment, on the one hand, there is the dearth of skilful hands. To keep a check and to implement changes, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan while addressing the 20th foundation day of Madhya Pradesh Madarsa Board and one-day Madrasa Shiksha Sammelan has urged the Madrasas to impart modern education along with religious training. To make children good human beings, the need of the hour is that they should be given modern education besides religious training.
Another great announcement made was that the amount given annually to each Madrasa for infrastructure development will be hiked from Rs 25,000 to Rs 50,000. An auditorium would also be built for Madhya Pradesh Madrasa Board. Children are the gift of God. This is the reason why Madhya Pradesh government has not let any kind of discrimination in the education of children Government is responsible to do its best for the students. There are available schemes for everyone. The main aim of education is the transfer of knowledge, making students skilful and giving them good culture. Chouhan said that everyone should unite in serving the nation.
So far, 2575 Madrasas have been registered in which 2.88 lakh children are studying.
On the auspicious occasion, best Madrasas, best Madrasa teachers and outstanding students were honoured by Chouhan. A souvenir containing the remarkable progress of Madrasa Board was also released. Other dignitaries present on the occasion include: Women and Child Development Minister Archana Chitnis, Minister of State for Minority Welfare Lalita Yadav, MP Nand Kumar Singh Chouhan and Manohar Untwal, Chhattisgarh Madrasa Board Chairman Eijaz Baig, Mehrunnisa from Rajasthan Madrasa Board, Central Haj Committee member Mohammed Irfan, Tourism Development Corporation chairman Tapan Bhowmik and Delhi’s main Imam Omar Ahmed Iliyasi.
The madrasas have also been appealed to hoist the Tricolour and make the students sing the national anthem daily in a bid to inculcate patriotism among the students. Regular schools in the Indian state of Madhya Pradesh hoist the Tricolour and sing the national anthem daily. When there exists no discrimination, then all madrasas in MP should also hoist the Tricolour and sing the national anthem daily. Nobody should have the problem in daily doing this activity.
In lieu of the modern education, this is to inform that computer education is being given in Madrasa classes since Class I. Welcoming the decision, School Education Minister Kunwar Vijay Shah said that “surely the tri-colour would be hoisted in Madrasas also like in other schools of the state every day.” Earlier, Shah had announced that from October 1, the students of government schools would have to say ‘Jai Hind’ when they answer the roll call in Satna district. Madrasa Board Chairman Professor Sayyed Imadduddin lauded the progress in imparting modern education in Madrasa board.
