UP Madrassa Board Objects to Day-to-day Interference by Officers of Education Department

Date:

Officials of the state education department are not the competent authority to inspect the madrassas run by the department of minority welfare, said Dr Iftikhar Ahmed Javed, chairman of Madrassa Education Board

LUCKNOW — The Uttar Pradesh Madrassa Education Board has expressed its reservation to the interference of officers of the education department in the day-to-day working of madrassas in the state, which has led to a situation of discomfort in these institutions.

Board chairman Dr Iftikhar Ahmed Javed, said: “Officials of the state education department are not the competent authority to inspect the madrassas run by the department of minority welfare.

“After the formation of the minority welfare department in 1995, all work of the madrassas, managed by the education department till then, was transferred to the minority welfare department.

“Later, the Uttar Pradesh Madrassa Education Council Act, 2004, was made through which the Uttar Pradesh Non-Government Arabic and Persian Madrassa Recognition, Administration and Service Regulations 2016 were made. Since then, the district madrassa education officer became the district minority welfare officer.

“As per the arrangement made in the Uttar Pradesh Madrassa Education Board Act 2004 and Regulations 2016, neither inspection nor notice will be given to any madrassa by any officer of any department other than the minority welfare department.” — IANS
