Uttarakhand madrasas to teach Sanskrit

A lower committee of the Uttarakhand Madrassa Education Board (UMEB) has given its nod to a proposal seeking inclusion of Sanskrit and Computer Science as optional subjects in madrasas all over the State from the next academic session, UMEB Deputy Registrar Akhlaq Ahmad told PTI.

At present, they offer Maths, Science, Ayush and Social Science as optional subjects.

The proposal will now be moved to the upper committee for approval, he said.

The Madrasa Welfare Society of Uttarakhand had recently approached the State government to include Sanskrit as one of the subjects.
