New Delhi, June 11: Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Union government's big minority push for modernisation of Madarsas is going to float from next month. The new schemes would provide English and scientific training to teachers appointed in Madrasas across the country. Reports from CNN-News 18 points out the scheme might be rolled out next month after the first Union Budget is tabled in Parliament on July 5.

The remarkable scheme is initiated by the Union ministry after PM Modi, while addressing the newly appointed National Democratic Alliance's Lok Sabha parliamentarians, mentioned that youth from minorities need to be given technical training for the overall development of the country. The Premier had clearly stated that Muslim youth need to be imparted technical training and for this, appropriate measures should be taken. Narendra Modi Government Overestimated GDP Growth Rate, Claims Ex-CEA Arvind Subramanian

He had said, "Development of Islamic youth is only possible when they will have Quran in one hand and computer on the other." Taking this message seriously, Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi is planning to modernise the Madarsas with the latest technology, so that along with the youth, teachers too are trained technically.

According to the Union government scheme, all the Madarsa teachers - across the country - would get basic training in subjects like English and Science. The training is most expectedly would be provided by the trained teachers of Jamia Milia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University.

Though the name of the programme has not been decided as of yet, reports confirm that the scheme is in place and would be announced next month. The main aim of the programme is to modernise the Madarsas with latest technological training for the teachers, so that Mulsim youths are trained accordingly. This is also called as PM Modi push to decrease the unemployment rate in the country.
