Amid opposition from opposition legislators, the Assam Legislative Assembly on Wednesday passed a bill to abolish state madrasas. Under this bill, all government madrasas will be abolished and converted into ordinary schools. Earlier, the opposition walked out of the house after rejecting a demand to send the bill to the standing committee. Assam Education Minister Himanta Bishwa Sarma had a fair discussion with Congress and AIUDF members on the ‘Assam Cancellation Bill-2020’. The request to be sent to the Standing Committee was rejected.

Speaker Hitendra Nath Goswami then put the bill to the vote. After making noise in the House, the bill was passed by voice vote. All the allies of the BJP – the Assam People’s Council and the Bodoland People’s Front (BPF) supported the bill. The bill proposes to repeal two existing laws – the Assam Madrasa Education (Territories) Act, 1995 and the Assam Madrasa Education (Region-Based Employees and Services Restructuring of Madrasa Education Institutes) Act-201 rep.

Responding to objections from opposition members, Sarma said, “I feel that this will prove to be a gift for the minority community.” Children studying in madrasas will welcome this decision after 10 years. “According to the bill, from April 1 next year, all madrasas will be converted into upper primary, higher and higher secondary schools, but the status, salary, allowances and conditions of service of the staff working in them, both academic and non-academic, will not change.
