Let us tell you, in the conference organized at Rasheed, the famous Masjid of Deoband, Darul Uloom clarified his stand regarding the survey of unrecognized madrassas by the state government. Managers and Ulemas from different madrasas of Uttar Pradesh participated in this conference. Talking to reporters after the conference, Maulana Arshad Madani said that no one has any objection to the survey being conducted by the government. He praised the survey work of every government and the pictures of the survey that have come so far are the correct picture.
Give correct information in the survey madrassa
Madani called upon the madrasa operators to cooperate in the survey, as nothing is hidden inside the madrassas. Their doors are always open for everyone. He said that madrasas run under the constitution of the country. Therefore, while cooperating in the survey being conducted by the Uttar Pradesh government, give complete and correct information.
No madrasa is against the constitution of the country
Madani said that in the conference, we have said that madrasa operators should keep their documents and land papers complete, pay attention to the audit, cleanliness, and health of the children, etc. He said that no madrasa is against the constitution of the country. If one or two madrasas are not functioning properly then the entire madrassa system should not be blamed for that.
Madani said that in the conference, the media and the officials have been asked to keep a positive attitude toward the madrassas. Along with this, all the responsible people present at the conference have been appealed to cooperate in the survey, highlighting the history of these madrassas and giving correct and complete information about madrassas.
Madani said that we do not need to be afraid and panic because madrasas have played an important role in independence and nation-building. Heavy security arrangements were made for this conference held on Sunday in Deoband. The media was kept away from the conference. A 12-member steering committee has also been constituted at this conference.

Significantly, on August 31, the Uttar Pradesh government ordered a survey of all unrecognized private madrassas operating in the state. For this, the work of forming teams was finished by 10 September. According to the order, after completing the survey by October 15, it has been asked to submit the report to the government by October 25. At present, about 16,000 private madrasas are operating in the state, including world-famous Islamic educational institutions Nadwatul Ulama and Darul Uloom Deoband.
Jamiat meeting was also held in Delhi
After the decision of the state government, now they will also be surveyed. The management and operators of private madrasas have expressed various apprehensions regarding this decision. A meeting of Jamiat-Ulama-e-Hind was also held in Delhi on September 6 regarding this, in which it was said that if the government wants to conduct a survey, then do it, but there should be no interference in the internal affairs of madrassas.
