New app with stories of freedom fighters, curriculum based on NEP
The Uttar Pradesh government is going to develop a mobile application for children studying in Madrasas that will include life stories of freedom fighters. This is being done by the state government in a bid to provide ‘modern education’. The government wants students studying in madrassas to be ‘full of patriotism’, said UP Minority Welfare Minister Danish Azad Ansari while announcing the initiative.
MOBILE APP BASED ON MADRASA
The state Minority Welfare Minister Danish Azad Ansari stated,“A mobile app based on madrasa curriculum will be developed for modern education and life stories of great men and freedom fighters will be taught there,”
“Madrasa students should be full of patriotism. The Yogi Adityanath government will also provide grants for weddings of poor women from the Muslim community,” he added.
MADRASA CURRICULUM TO BE BASED ON NEP 2020
Uttar Pradesh’s Minority Affairs Minister Dharampal Singh had earlier said that the education curriculum for madrasas in the state will be based on National Education Policy 2020, consisting of topics regarding nationalism and will not have stories of terrorists.
