Madhya Pradesh Jamiat-e-Ulema Hind submits memo to Governor against saffronisation of education

By Pervez Bari

Bhopal: A delegation of Jamiat-e-Ulema Hind, Madhya Pradesh Unit called on the state Governor Ram Naresh Yadav and submitted to him a memorandum protesting the saffronisation of education in schools by the Bharatiya Janata Party ruled state Government.

The memorandum pointed out that the education policy of the state government is flawed as Hindu’s religious education is being introduced in government schools wherein lessons of Geeta Saar, Surya Namaskar, Bhojan Mantra etc. have been included. The memorandum said that this is against the basic principles of Indian Constitution which is totally secular and does not allow imparting of education of any one particular religion.

The governor gave a patient hearing to the delegation and reportedly assured of action on the points mentioned in the memorandum. The Governor expressing his views on the subject said that if religious education of all religions such as Islam, Christianity, Guru Granth of Sikhs etc. are also included in the school curriculum then it would be a right step.

The delegation was led by Freedom Fighter Maulana Mufti Abdul Razzaq Khan, who is national vice president and Madhya Pradesh president of Jamiat-e-Ulema Hind (Maulana Arshad Madani Group). The other members of the delegation were Mufti Ziaurrahman Qasmi, Adv. Abdul Hameed Khan and Mohammad Riaz Khan, general secretary and secretary respectively of Jamiat-e-Ulema Hind, Madhya Pradesh Unit.
