Madarsas opposes government directive for videography of ID celebrations

CM Yogi's new directive to Madarsas hold patriotic celebrations on August 15

Madarsa Board has also followed into the footstep of Uttar Pradesh Madarsa Shiksha Parishad's by ordering 256 Madarsas to unfold the national flag and recite the national anthem on August 15.

About 256 Madarsas has given order by the Madhya Pradesh Madarsa Board on 11th August that On the 15th August they have to recite the national anthem and unfold the national flag. He further said, "The madarsas do not get additional funds for celebrating national day functions and even if an order comes, it should be for all and not only for educational institutions imparting religious education of a particular community".

The circular also calls for holding cultural programmes based on the theme of national unity, along with sports activities.

The board issued a circular to this effect on August 10, in which it also asked the heads of these madarsas to click and e-mail photographs of the I-Day activities. The Parishad has also directed that national flag unfurling should be followed by recitation of national anthem.


In the past, there have been allegations that some madrasas did not hoist the National Flag on Independence Day. Sources said that the decision to video graph the events was taken after reports that some madrasas did not follow procedures on Independence Day celebrations.

There are around 8,000 madrasas in the state that are recognised by the parishad.

Talking to IANS, Imamuddin said that there was neither anything new about the directive, nor it was being issued for the first time.

Madarsa students have been asked to sing patriotic songs and discuss the history of August 15 and the freedom fighters. "These videos will be kept as an evidence to prove that all programmes were organised in madrasas as per state government directives". According to him, in the past as well the board had issued such directives, asking the madarsas to unfurl the tricolour and hold cultural events on the Independence Day and Republic Day.
