new Delhi. After the decision of the Bharatiya Janata Party government of Assam to shut down the madrasas, it has now decided to dissolve the madrasa board as well. “We will dissolve the madrasa board. We will withdraw the notification equivalent to madrasa education and general education. We will convert all state-run madrasas into normal schools,” state government education minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said in a media interaction.
However, on the question of closure of private madrasas, he said that the government has no intention of shutting down the private madrasas. We are bringing regulations, it is necessary to tell the students why they are going to the seminary. They have to introduce science-mathematics in the syllabus. They have to register with the state, respect the constitutional mandate but the character of the madrasa can be maintained.
In response to other media queries, he said that hostels in Assam will open from December 1 while schools will open from November 1. We have divided sections and days of classes in such a way that schools are not congested. There will be two shifts in the skulls, the first morning is eight and a half to twelve and half in the afternoon and the second shift is from one and half to four and a half in the evening. Students will be allowed to attend schools for only three days.
He further said that we have also given an option that if some parents do not want to send their children to school or school authorities do not want to open schools and want to run online classes, then they can do so. We will not insist on compulsory attendance this year, as it is voluntary participation
