Education system in madrassas to be restructured: GovtJune 9th, 2009 - 11:10 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, June 9 (ANI): Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal on Tuesday said the Government wants Madrassa institutions should impart professional training along with religious teachings for Muslim youths’ empowerment.
Sibal, however, has also stated that that the ministry would not interfere with the religious teachings in madrassas.
“It will be part of the 100-day agenda. When I talk about restructuring education, we will not interfere with the religious teaching in madrassas. But at the same time, the aim will be to empower Muslim youth,” Sibal said.
According to Sibal, the objective is to ensure that when Muslim youth come out of schools, they get job opportunities. “We will ensure that they have skills and they are equipped with the kind of education that enables them to be part of the mainstream.”
The Government has already decided to value madrassa qualification at par with Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to enable Muslim students to get Central government jobs.
However, this benefit will be available for those madrassas that are affiliated to the State madrassa boards existing in 10 States. (ANI)
