UP MSP's directive on national song, national flag welcomed by BJP

UP MSP's directive on national song, national flag welcomed by BJP

The Uttar Pradesh Madarsa Shiksha Parishad (UP Madarsa Education Council), a state government body, has issued a circular mandating all madrasas affiliated to it across the state to celebrate the 70th Independence Day by hoisting the tri-colour and singing the national anthem and national song.

Earlier in the day, the UP MSP issued a circular in this regard and asked all madrasas affiliated to it to comply with its orders.

According to the circular, the flag hoisting and recitation of the National Anthem will take place at 8 a.m. Following this, tributes will be paid to martyrs of India's freedom struggle. Students are also asked to sing songs based on nationalism. The notice also says that schools should click photographs and make videos of the event so as to encourage and repeat well-performed programs and activities in future events as well. The nation would be on high alert during the Independence Day celebrations. The entire function has to be videographed. It's for the first time that madarsas have been asked to hold cultural programmes on Independence Day and record the event.

Former board chairman Rashid Khan said while most large madrasas celebrate Indepe-ndence Day and hoist the Tricolour, it is likely that the smaller ones find it hard to organise events.

"But this is the first time when madrasas have been directed to pay tribute to freedom fighters and organise cultural function on national unity".

The Madhya Pradesh Madarsa Board has directed all madarsas in the state to celebrate the Independence Day and send photographs of their I-Day celebration.

The minister also defended videography of programmes saying, "The videos of best programmes would be selected and will be screened in other madrasas so that students could draw inspiration from them".
