Union Minority Affairs Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Tuesday (11 June) announced that Madrasas in India would be linked to formal mainstream education so that its students too would be able to contribute to national building, ANI has reported.

As part of this initiative, the Madrasa teachers would be trained in Science, Maths, Computer Sciences, English and Hindi for imparting mainstream education to madrasa students.

Naqvi laid out “3Es” - education, employment and empowerment for uplifting minority education in the country.

Other facilities to minorities would include scholarships during various stages of education for 5 crore students, out of which 50 per cent would be reserved for girls.
