The Central government has announced that Madrasa degrees will now be equivalent to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). According to Union Minister for Human Resource Development Arjun Singh Central government will introduce a Bill to this effect in this regard in the next session of Parliament. The Minister of State for Human Resource Development Mr. Ali Ashraf Fatimi on January 21 told media persons in New Delhi that with this provision Madrasa graduates will now be eligible for government services. “The degrees recognised as Secondary and Senior Secondary by the State Madrasa Boards will now stand equivalent to the degrees of the schools affiliated to the CBSE and Council of Board of School Education,” elaborated Mr. Fatimi. While replying to a question about those states which do not have their own Madrasa Boards, Mr. Fatimi stated, “Such states will have to get recognition from the state that have Madrasa Boards.” Mr. Fatimi also proposed that for this purpose a special cell in Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU) could be formed. This step of the Central government comes after a letter sent to Mr. Fatimi by the Union Minister for Railways Mr. Lalu Prasad requesting for granting equivalence of CBSE and other such Educational Boards to Madrasa degrees.
