Rajasthan: Congress govt allocates Rs 1.88 crore to Madarsas after claiming that Modi govt has not released funds

The Rajasthan government claimed that the centre was supposed to grant them Rs 9 crore for the functioning of nearly 3240 madarsas in the state. Reportedly, as the centre has not released any funds, few madarsas are on the verge of being shut in the state. 

The Congress government in Rajasthan led by Ashok Gehlot has sanctioned Rs 1.88 crore for Madarsas in the state after the central government under Prime Minister stopped funding to Madarsas.

According to reports, the Rajasthan government claimed that the centre was supposed to grant them Rs 9 crore for the functioning of nearly 3240 Madarsas in the state. Reportedly, as the centre did not release any funds, the Rajasthan government decided to fund them as Madarsas are on the verge of being closed in the state.

Saleh Mohammad, Minister of the State for Minority Affairs in Rajasthan government, claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not fulfil his promise of taking every community together by referring to the PM’s call for winning everyone’s trust – Sabka Vishwas. He further said the decision to stop the grant of Madrasas is directly affecting the education of Muslim children.

“All the tall promises made by the Centre and PM Narendra Modi for helping the minorities have failed. I would like to thank Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot for providing Rs 1.88 crore as a grant for Madarsas,” said Saleh Mohammad.

The funds provided by the state government will be spent on the development and maintenance of Madarsas. The funds are being allocated under the Madarsa Modernization Scheme. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot will also write a letter urging the central government to continue with the grant for Madarsas.

The Centre had announced its plan to bring Madrasa under the ambit of the formal education system of the country. The Centre had announced that it would provide a grant of Rs 5,000 at the primary level and Rs 8,000 per Madrasa at upper primary level.

In June this year, PM Narendra Modi-led BJP government announced scholarships for over 5 crore students from minority community including 50 per cent girls, in the next five years. Making the announcement, Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi had said that government will provide for pre-matric, post-matric, and professional and technical course studies.
