Children will now be able to enrol in scout and guide, NCC, and NSS training in Uttarakhand’s madrassas as well. Dhan Singh Rawat, the state’s minister of education, has issued directives to the madrassas in this respect.
This is thought to inspire madrassa students to enlist in the military. This choice was made at a time when recent reports suggested that Madrasas will soon adopt a dress code and the NCERT curriculum.
Children will be able to participate in scout and guide, NCC, and NSS training in madrassas in Uttarakhand, according to education minister Dhan Singh Rawat. In addition to public and private schools, Sanskrit schools, Anganwadis, government-aided schools, and all madrassas, he stated that NCC, NSS, and Scouts and Guides courses will be offered. He stated that the madrasas would follow the dress code established for these courses in order to accomplish this.
The Uttarakhand Waqf Board previously decided to implement a dress code and NCERT English-medium curriculum in its madrassas beginning with the new academic session in April of next year.
Shadab Shams, the president of the Uttarakhand Waqf Board, has stated that Uttarakhand is the only state in the nation where this new endeavour is being done to integrate madrassa children into society. According to him, Uttarakhand will be the first state to offer English-medium instruction in Madrasas using the NCERT syllabus.
