UP: Madrassas survey report to be submitted by October 25, AIMPLB calls it nefarious and abominable conspiracy | Lucknow News

LUCKNOW: More than 225 members constituted in 75 districts of Uttar Pradesh are conducting a survey of unregulated madrassas. Their comprehensive report will be submitted to the state government on October 25. Meanwhile, All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) has called the government survey a nefarious and abominable conspiracy to defame madrassas and create suspicion among compatriots.
The ground team will comprise Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM), Basic Siksha Adhikari (BSA) and Minority Welfare Officer. They have to submit their survey report to additional district magistrate (ADM) by October 5, and after scrutiny ADM would submit to district magistrate (DM) on October 15 for his final approval—following which DM would submit the report to state government within 10 days.
Speaking to TOI, Jagmohan Singh registrar of UP madrasa board said, “The survey has kick started in several districts. In the survey we have focused on 12 points which include name of the madrasa, name of the organization who is operating the madrasa, in which year madrasa was established, whether the madrasa is running on rental property or on donated property.”
“Further in the survey it will also be checked if the madrasa is suitable for children or not—meaning if there are toilets, drinking water facility, benches for students, electricity supply. The survey will also find as how many students are enrolled in the madrasa and what is the strength of the teacher, syllabus of the madrasa, if the student enrolled in the madrasa is studying in a different school, affiliation of the madrasa and funding of the madrasa,” he added.
Hazrat Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rahmani, general secretary of AIMPLB said, “Madrassas have a glorious history of building characters of moral and ethics. Those who obtain knowledge in madrassas have not been part of any kind of terrorism or communal hatred, but government repeatedly have made allegations against madrassas, but always failed to prove it.”
“Veteran leaders of the ruling party such as Lal Krishan Advani, as home minister of the country had also accepted the roles of madrassas in country development. Similarly, strong leadership of the country such as President of India Rajendra Prasad, APJ Abdul Kalam, former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, and even Maulana Azad have acknowledged the services of madrassas, scholars (ulema) who have made extraordinary sacrifices during the freedom struggle and even after independence,” he said.
“The board requests the government to survey all religious and non-religious institutions of the country and not single out our madrassas. Conducting a survey of just madrasas is an attempt to insult the Muslims and is absolutely unacceptable,” he added.
