The Yogi Adityanath Government has ordered all the madarsas across the states to take the classes in Hindi and English medium too apart from Urdu. The decision came after the recommendations of the Arbi-Farsi Urdu Madarsa Board.

Madarsas have been at the forefront of criticism over the curriculum of their teachings. They are schools for Islamic instruction which deprives the students of the career-driven subjects like Mathematics, Science, English and Social Science. The government has also ordered to introduce all these subjects in the curriculum.

The recommendation, made on 15th May, also stated to follow the syllabus and books of NCERT. The suggestions were accepted by the cabinet on 22 May.
