AIMC Welcomes HRD Ministry Decision to Turn Down US Proposal to Send Tutors in Indian Madrassas
By A U Asif

New Delhi, February 4 All India Milli Council (AIMC) has welcomed the decision of the Human Resources Development Ministry to turn down a US proposal to send Americans to teach English in Indian madarsas.

Talking to the Fana Watch, AIMC General Secretary Dr Manzoor Alam said that the proposal was obviously interference in the affairs of the madrassas in India. “Therefore, its rejection by the Congress-led UPA Government has given a sigh of relief to the Muslim community,” he opined. 

The proposal — routed through the ministry of external affairs — has been rejected on the ground that the government does not interfere in the functioning of madrassas.

It is said that the outcry by the Muslim community has prompted the government to reject the US proposal.

"Our policy is of non-interference. The Indian government does not play any proactive role and simply monitors educational schemes for Muslims through its minority cell," a HRD Ministry source said, adding that many madrassas already teach English.

It is to point out that the HRD ministry has already failed to evolve consensus in the Muslim community on the issue of setting up of a Central Madrassa Board. India has about 7,000 registered madrassas, with more than 3.5 lakh students on its rolls.
