uttar-pradesh

LUCKNOW: The Uttar Pradesh government has issued a new timetable for the madrasas in the state. Iftekhar Ahmed Javed, chairman of the Uttar Pradesh Madrasa Education Board, has issued directives to all madrasas affiliated to the state government to ensure six-hour education for students so that hey can be brought to the level of other schools.

The revised working hours are from 9 am to 3 pm. Before this, madrasas used to function from 9 am to 2 pm.

"We want to make sure that the madrasa student do not feel inferior when he is moving in the society. He must have good general knowledge, besides knowledge of math, science, English and Hindi along with religious subjects. We want to produce perfect students who can contribute to the development of the country," Javed said.

"We want madrasas to match the standards of other good schools so that even the people of the management committee can proudly admit their kids in madrasas for quality education. We must develop a respect for madrasa education first," he said.

"The day will start with prayers at 9 a.m. followed by the national anthem. The classes will go on till noon. Students will have a lunch break from 12 to 12.30 pm. After that, classes will go on till 3 pm," he added.
