Madrasas in Assam to Become Regular Schools

As part of the State Government initiative to empower the Muslim community in Assam, the State-run madrasas will be converted to regular schools. A Bill was passed by the Assam Legislature Assembly stripping such institutions of the status of centers for religious education. Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma quoting Dr. BR Ambedkar said that religious instruction should have no place in the curriculum. The new legislation also covers private-run madrasas that are run under the state boards although private-run madrasas — which are not under any state board — will remain outside its purview.
