One decision that I think everyone can get behind.

Maharashtra minorities minister Eknath Khadse has announced that subjects like English, Mathematics, Science and Social Sciences will have to be compulsorily taught in madrassas across the state, apart from religion.

According to a report in a Marathi news daily, the minister has further stated that madrasses which do not follow this directive will not be eligible for subsidies.

3 teachers will be assigned to each madrassa to teach the above four subjects, Khadse announced.

There are 1,889 madrassas in Maharashtra, and a subsidy of Rs 5,50,000 per year is provided to each.

It remains to be seen whether there is any strident opposition to this directive. For many years, madrassas have been opposed to any state government directive forcing them to teach non-religious subjects.

Education minister Vinod Tawde on the other hand has announced that students who fail their Class 10 exams will be eligible to retake them in July. This will reduce the percentage of students who have to wait another year to clear their exams, it is believed.

Seems fair. They also need to learn what is outside their books for a better future.

This should never have been allowed in the first place. Why is the government subsidizing the religious education of any religion? Religion is a personal matter and they should do it themselves.

I was thinking this as well. A secular society should not subsidize religious education.

But I think votebank politics are involved somehow.

Those minorities groups are so much against yoga saying that it's a Hindu thing and should not be allowed in a secular society.
While Subsidizing these madarsas is seen as empowering the minorities. Here they forget all about secularism.

It's a classic example of hipocracy and the damage done by our selected netas. Hindus or other religion people can't utter a word in support of there own interests as that would seem as anti national. When the same hindus talk against Hindus then it is seen as secularism.

This is far from an ideal scenario. And the main reason for that are the parties like congress, SAPA etc that show themselves as the biggest protector of secularism by speaking and doing things against other religions specially Hinduism.

Though I agree they should teach outside subjects but religious is quite an important thing.. because schools in abroad teach students religion. SOURCE: Me
