Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh cabinet on Tuesday accepted State Madrasa Board's proposal to teach English and Hindi languages besides Urdu in the Islamic institutions.

The decision in this regard was taken at a cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath here this evening. The cabinet also approved the proposal of following NCERT syllabus and books in the Madaris, an official spokesman said, according to PTI.

Subjects like Hindi, English, Science, Mathematics and Social Science would be introduced in the curriculum, the official said.

The State Madrasa Board in a meeting with the government officials on May 15 had suggested that all Islamic institutions should teach English and Hindi languages along with Urdu.

Uttar Pradesh has Madaris spread across the state, including the places where there is no school. This is why in many Madaris, along with Muslims, non-Muslims also take admission for studies. A recently published book has actually documented how non-Muslims after graduating from Madris are working on plum posts in the Middle East.

India is not a stranger to non-Muslims studying in Madaris. A number of reports published recently pointed out that there are a large number of non-Muslims studying in Madaris not only in Uttar Pradesh but also in Bihar, West Bengal and even in Gujarat. There is a Madrasa in Surat, Gujarat where 70% students are non-Muslims.
