Why State Governments do not have any such schemes for Sanskrit Pathshalas and Vedpathshalas too ? Why they think development of only ‘minorities’ ? What about majority Hindus, who pay largest part in taxes collected by Govt ? – Editor, Hindujagruti

The Maharashtra government-led by secular political parties of Shiv Sena, NCP and the Congress has announced to distribute Rs 1.80 crores as salaries to Islamic clerics and Madarsa teachers in the state.

According to the reports, Maharashtra’s Minority Development Minister Nawab Malik said that the Uddhav Thackeray-led government has decided to distribute Rs 1.80 crores among the teachers of 121 Madarsas in the state, for their salaries under Dr Zakir Hussain Madarsa Modernisation Scheme.

The Maharashtra government had launched the Dr Zakir Hussain Madarsa Modernisation Scheme to modernise these Islamic religious centres by developing infrastructure and for the appointment of teachers to educate children in modern subjects and grant of scholarships.

The scheme was launched in 2013 under the then Congress-NCP alliance government.
