Amidst ‘Confusion’ On Govt. Orders, Many Madrasas In UP Celebrate Independence Day

Published on 16 August, 2017 at 2:00 pm By

The 71st Independence Day of India was celebrated with a lot of patriotism and excitement. Among those celebrating the day of independence were also several madrasas of Uttar Pradesh. Tricolor flags were unfurled and the national anthem was sung in many of the madrasas of the state.

On August 4, the Uttar Pradesh government had issued orders to all madrasas in the state to celebrate Independence Day by unfurling the national flag and singing the national anthem. Reportedly, the government had also asked the madrasas to send the videotape of the celebrations as evidence. Ever since the state government issued the order, it has been a point of debate.

Some of these institutions even video graphed the celebrations amidst “confusions” about the orders by the state government regarding Independence Day celebration while there were some who claimed that they haven’t received any official notice on the same and refused to sing the national anthem as it is impermissible under Sharia. NDTV reports that there was strict surveillance of police on many of the madrasas that celebrated the day of national independence.

The Madhya Pradesh Madrasa Board followed the footsteps of Uttar Pradesh Madrasa Shiksha Parishad and ordered all of its madrasas to unfurl the national flag and recite the national anthem. The Indian Express reports that MP board also directed the youth to record videos and click pictures of the celebrations and send it to the board’s chairman.

Some clerics, however, asserted that it is objectionable to believe that Muslims are not patriots or are anti-nationals. One of the clerics from Delhi also said that passing such orders that question the loyalty and patriotism of Muslims is not right. The board had in fact, also instructed its students to take out a “Tiranga Rally” on August 15.

Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangimahli, head of Darul Uloom Firangimahal (a madrasa of UP) and a member of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board held that the BJP-led UP government should not have issued the order exclusively for madrasas but for all schools, colleges, and universities in the state.
