MP madarsas told to hoist tricolour, send celebration photos

On August 11, the Madhya Pradesh Madarsa Board had ordered all 256 madrasas in the state to unfurl the national flag and recite the national anthem on August 15.

The madarsa authorities will also have to click photographs of their celebration of the Independence Day and send the same to the madarsa board office. The Yogi Adityanath-led state government has directed all madrasas across the state to hoist the national flag, recite the national anthem, sing patriotic songs, organise cultural and sport-related programmes, and pay tribute to freedom fighters on Independence Day.

After that, homage will be paid to the soldiers and martyrs of the freedom struggle. A cultural program on national unity and sports events will follow then and the program will end with sweet distribution.

"These madarsas, which are registered with us, have also been asked to compulsorily take part in or organise Tiranga yatra (tricolour rallies) in their respective cities if no other organisation has planned such an event", he added. The entire function has to be videographed.

At present, around there are 8,000 recognised madrasas in UP of these, 560 are fully aided by the state.

The state government has also warned the madrasas that if the directives aren't followed, the state will then withdraw government aid to these institutions.

71st Independence Day is going to be celebrated across the country on August 15. The programme should be concluded by candies distribution among the students.

The minister also defended videography of programmes saying, "The videos of best programmes would be selected and will be screened in other madrasas so that students could draw inspiration from them".
