Non-Muslims studying in madrassas, government is giving scholarship! Demand for investigation in every state

The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has written a letter to the chief secretaries of all states and union territories. It is recommended in this letter that all government funded/recognized schools offering admission to non-Muslim children madrassas should be examined in detail. Apart from this, the Child Rights Protection Agency has also recommended mapping of all unmapped madrassas. The commission has also sought a report on the action taken within 30 days from the states to take appropriate measures.

Actually, recently a nationwide survey was conducted by NCPCR. It was found in this survey that there are 1.10 crore students who are studying in unrecognized and unmapped madrassas. In this way, it was believed about these students that they do not come under the Right to Education (RTE) and they were considered out of school.

non-muslim students studying in madrassas

According to several complaints received by the commission, it has been found that students of other religions besides Muslims are also studying in madrassas. NCPCR Chairman Priyanka Kango said, 'It has been learned that children from non-Muslim communities are also studying in government-funded/recognised madrassas. Even more surprising is that the governments of some states and union territories are also giving scholarships to these students.

Congo said, 'This is completely contradictory to Article 28 (3) of the Constitution and violates it. This article prohibits educational institutions from allowing children to participate in any religious ritual without the consent of the parents.

It was further said in this letter that according to the constitutional provision, the state is bound to provide free education to all the children without any discrimination. It should be ensured that they are sent to a nearby school for formal education.

scholarship stopped in madrassas

Last month, the central government put a stop to scholarship grants to students of madrassas studying in classes I to VIII. The government's argument was that students are already provided free education under the Right to Education. Besides, the Center argued that students in madrassas are provided with other facilities like books and mid-day meals.
