The Yogi Adityanath Government has ordered all the madarsas across the states to take the classes in Hindi and English medium and not in 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 order was one of the promises of CM Yogi Adityanath to make his vision of modern madarsa true. Earlier, he had rejected the demand of shutting down of Madarsas stating that it will not help eradicate the basic problems and he further gave a view of modernized madarsa by including modern subjects. 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.
