Lucknow, March 4 : Jamiat Ulama-e-Hind (JuH), a leading organisation of Islamic scholars belonging to the Deobandi school of thought, has decided to take 2,000 madrasa students from Uttar Pradesh, Delhi and Maharashtra under its wings and provide them contemporary mainstream education.
This is an attempt to change the image of madrasas as obsolete, orthodox institutions into centres of holistic learning.
JuH secretary, Niaz Ahmed Farooqui, who is spearheading the pilot project, said, “Jamiat Open School’ will provide the infrastructure and trained staff to the students for studying computers, mathematics, sciences and language among other subjects offered under the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS).” For the pilot project, JuH has selected 90 private madrasas which are not getting government aid from the 12 districts of western Uttar Pradesh, 10 madrasas from Delhi and 100 madrasas from 10 districts of Maharashtra.
JuH will register 20 students from each madrasa for the open school from March 15. These students will be taught subjects that will help them in getting secondary-level certification and prove helpful in their employment.
JuH will also take care of student scholarships, smart classes, online and offline reading material, teachers’ training and other amenities required with the help of sponsors and donation.
