Yogi’s Next Big Move For Madarsa Reforms In UP
Yogi Adityanath government has cleared a proposal to include books by National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) in the syllabus of madarsas functioning in the state.

According to reports, the UP Board of Madarsa Education has been asked to include NCERT textbooks in its curriculum.

Post clearance from the state government, the Madarsa Board has started preparations to include the prescribed NCERT text in the curriculum, UP Deputy CM Dinesh Sharma said in a tweet on Monday.

The proposal states that mathematics and science subjects will be included in the syllabus.

There are over 19,000 recognised and 560 government-aided madarsas in the state.

This move is being seen as a way to bring the madarsas, which usually prescribe their own syllabus to children studying in the educational institutions, at par with public and private schools in the state.

In August earlier this year, the Uttar Pradesh government had launched a portal of UP Madarsa Board for online registration of all the Islamic educational institutions in a bid to check “irregularities.”

The move aims at bringing transparency as all the details of the madarsas will be available online, UP Waqf Minister Mohsin Raza had then said.

The state government had earlier asked all madarsas to unfurl the national flag and recite the national anthem as part of Independence Day celebrations.
