By doing this, efforts will be made to bring them into the mainstream of the country and society for their better future. There, Saharanpur District Minority Welfare Department Officer Bharat Lal Gaur said that the survey work of all madrasas in Saharanpur district has been completed, the report of which has been handed over to the District Magistrate. He said that in Saharanpur district, including Darul Uloom Deoband and Mazahir Uloom Saharanpur, there are a total of 306 unapproved madrasas which do not get any help from the government.

Children are receiving religious education in these Madrasas, including Darul Uloom Deoband and Mazahir Uloom Saharanpur, although these Madrasas cannot be called illegal but they do not take any kind of support or donation from the government. The curriculum is not even taught. In this matter, Darul Uloom Deoband says that the institution is registered under the Society Act and religious and modern education is given here under the religious freedom given in the Indian law. He said that the organization that has been running for more than one hundred and fifty years has never taken any help or donation from the government, all its expenses are supported by the donations given by the public. In this regard, District Magistrate Saharanpur Akhilesh Singh said that so far 247 madrasas have been found which do not receive any help from the government. Darul Uloom Deobandhi does not take any help from the government and it is registered under the Society Act and it cannot be said that it is illegal. There is some confusion among the people regarding the survey, the survey is to find out how many madrasas are getting help from the government. Taking them cannot be called illegal.
