7,000 Madrassas as CBSE affiliated schools: HRD Minister, India
How many jobs are left with Central Government ? And if there are any , after the special recruitment drives for SC/ST/OBC, how many are left for General category and Muslims ?
And out of that how many Muslims will get job ? No guarantee. What is guaranteed is a 'snub' in private sector, when they will present their Madarssa CBSE equivalent degree. Unofficially, they will be kicked out citing low IQ or some other reason.
Nevertheless: I believe that HRD Minister Arjun Singh is causing more harm to Muslims, for getting their votes.
I couldn't decide whether to laugh or cry after such insane decision. Let readers know your opinion ?
Government has decided to treat madrassa qualification at par with CBSE to enable Muslim students to get Central government jobs.
"Recently, I have approved the recommendations of CBSE and Council of Board of School Education in India regarding equivalence of madrassas qualification," HRD Minister Arjun Singh said.
Addressing the annual conference of State Minority Commissions in New Delhi, he said this step would make madrassa students eligible for Central government jobs.
"Setting up of the Central Madrassa Board is under consideration," he said pointing out that madrassa education has received a "special attention" in his ministry.
Plans were on the anvil to set up a Central Madrassa Board to modernise the education imparted in Islamic schools across the country.
The Central Madrassa Board would issue certificates to students enabling them to get admission in colleges throughout the country.
While State Madrassa Boards exist in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Orissa, Assam and West Bengal, the HRD Ministry is of the view that in those states where such Boards do not exist, students should have an option to approach a Madrassa Board in a neighbouring State to avail of the CBSE equivalence.
There are over three lakh students in some 7,000 madrassas in the country.
Singh said that during the last five years of UPA rule the government has taken many path breaking steps to address issues of access, equity and inclusion in the national system of education in respect of minorities.
