'Jamiat Open School' to modernise madrasa education

In an attempt to modernise madrasa education, Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind has set up a ‘Jamiat Open School’ in collaboration with the madrassa community. 

The Jamiat Open School will work in the framework of NIOS all across the country.The program is targeted to reach out to 50 thousand students at the first stage.

According to reports, an introductory and training program was held today at the headquarter of the Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, in which about 100 heads of Madrasas representing UP districts & Delhi attended the event along with several educationists. They will proceed to Pune for one-month-long training.

Maulana Mahmood Madani, the director of the JOS, and General Secretary of the Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind in his speech said we do not accept the government’s interference in religious madrassas, citing the disastrous example of Assam, he added we have chosen our path for modern education.

"In the changing circumstances of the world, we need a good preacher. Every year, thousands of young Muslims graduate from various Islamic centres of learning gain a deeper understanding of traditional Islamic science but they are unable to play a key role in their society due to unfamiliarity with modern techniques. Therefore, it is our goal to provide a quality education through Jamiat Open School so that students can progress in the field of modern science as well", he said. 

Several attempts to modernize madrasa education and stay significant to the times have been recently happening. Lately, madrasas in Bihar has conducted a three-day workshop with the same goal.
