 Lucknow (Muhammad Amir Nadvi) The process of surveying madrasas in Uttar Pradesh is almost complete, but the debate about the legality and illegality of madrasas is not stopping. Uttar Pradesh Madrasa Education Board Chairman Dr. Iftikhar Ahmed Javed has clarified that on the basis of the survey no madrassa can be called illegal, nor can action be taken against any madrassa. He said that all Madrasahs in the state are running under the rights given in Article 30 of the Constitution and registered societies, therefore it is not mandatory for Madrasahs to be registered with the Board. Dr. Iftikhar Ahmed Javed, chairman of UP Madrasa Education Board, while speaking to Inqlab, said that I am making it absolutely clear that a survey cannot prove any madrassa as illegal, nor is this the purpose of the survey, nor It is intended to take action on a seminary based on the survey. He said that all madrasas are running legally. On this question, on what basis are talks about the illegality of madrassas being made?

In Article 30 of the Constitution, the minorities of the country have been given the right to open their own religious educational institutions. All madrasas are run under registered society; So they are completely legal.

Yes, Madrasahs affiliated to them do not need registration. At the same time, he said that many important institutions like Darul Uloom Deoband are not only educating a large number of students, but also spreading their concern to the whole world, this is a big thing.
