Bihar govt to provide scholarships to madrassa students

Government-affiliated madrassas in Bihar will now get a new makeover as the state government has pledged to provide better infrastructure and appoint Urdu teachers along with providing scholarships to students studying there.

"Students of government-affiliated madrassas will be provided scholarships," Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said.

While speaking at a function to mark Urdu Day, the chief minister said that the government will appoint Urdu teachers in all high schools.

“The government would strengthen madrassa infrastructure in the state,” the chief minister added.

Nitish Kumar also expressed regrets that he could not learn Urdu during his student days and said his government will take steps to promote the language in the state.

"It is my desire that all should learn and study Urdu. Both Hindi and Urdu are Hindustani languages. The government will work for the promotion of Urdu” he said.

The chief minister said that the language should not be spoken only in a particular community but all should try to learn it.

"It is wrong to associate Urdu with a particular community," he added.

According to reports, Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi had in December last year said the state government would pay scholarship to the students who clear Class X and XII examinations through madrassa.

“The scholarship would be given under the Mukhya Mantri Alpasankhyak Chhatra Protsahan Yojana (CM Minority Students' Incentive Policy),” he said, adding, “The state government would also provide assistance to government-recognised madrassas for basic infrastructure support like classrooms, toilets, drinking water facility, libraries and computers.”
