UP to form committee to fix madrassa admission-minimum-age

Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh Minister of State for Minority Welfare Danish Azad Ansari informed that the government is going to form a committee to fix the minimum age for admission in Madrasas in the state, PTI reported.

"A committee would be formed to determine the age of the student for admission in various classes of madrasas, on the basis of whose report a decision would be taken. At present, there are no plans to fix the maximum age for admission in madrasas," Ansari told PTI.

He said that in many instances, parents are admitting their wards late in madrasas, which the government want to put an end to.

Recently, Minority Welfare Minister Dharampal Singh had told reporters during the distribution of mobile/tablets to meritorious students of high schools of madrasas that many older men, who were students at the madrasa, had come to receive the award and that it was not right.

But, "What Dharampal Singh meant was that the education of children studying in madrasas should start at the right time and be completed at the right time," Ansari said.

There are 16,461 madrasas in the state, out of which 560 receive government grants.

The state government is emphasising modern education along with religious education in madrasas and is running various schemes for this.
