Lucknow: In a bid to improve the standard of education and to provide better educational opportunities to their youth, Muslim organisations in the country have taken an initiative to set up a separate board on the lines on ISC and CBSE.
"It has been decided to set up a Muslim Education Board on the lines of ISC and CBSE boards which will give affiliation to religious and non-religious educational institutions in the country," member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board Maulana Khalid Rashid Firangi Mahali told PTI.
"A decision in this regard was taken during a conference of prominent Muslim organisations held in New Delhi earlier this week", he added.
"The conference was attended by HRD Minister Kapil Sibal and Minister of State for Minority Welfare Minister Salman Khursheed," he said.
The proposed board, which will give affiliation to all institutions up to class 12th, will not only ensure uniformity in the system, but also monitor quality of education.
"The idea behind floating the new board is to improve quality of education and to introduce modern education in Muslim institutions, including Madaris, in the country," Mahali said.
Syllabus of Madaris in Uttar Pradesh had already been revised and subjects like English, Hindi, Urdu and computers were made compulsory.
Immediately after the meeting, the process for setting up of the new board has been initiated with the formation of a high-level committee, which will prepare the draft, Mahali said.
