Need to Modernize Madrasas

MadrasasThe UP government may cancel the accreditation of 2,682 madrasas for failing to upload details on the official madrasa portal despite several reminders. The state government had launched the UP Madrasa Board portal in August this year and had asked all madrasas to give details of teachers, staff and students, along with building and class measurements added with photographs. There are nearly 16,000 madrasas in UP, out of which 560 are fully aided. Madrasas play an important role in imparting primary and middle-level education to poor Muslim students, but the mode of teaching is several centuries old. Madrasas did not change with time, and hence the need to modernize them. I remember, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had clearly said in our show Aap Ki Adalat in 2014 that he wanted to see Muslim youths with a holy Quran in one hand, and a computer in another, but this can happen only when computer teaching is imparted through madrasas. Naturally, the state government requires details about facilities in madrasas in order to chalk out a proper plan. Madrasa owners should come forward and share details, and if they require time, they should be given. Already the deadline has been extended twice.
