Uttarakhand madrasas to teach Sanskrit

Dehradun, Jan 12 (PTI): The lower committee of Uttarakhand Madrasa Education Board (UMEB) has given its nod to a proposal seeking inclusion of Sanskrit and Computer Science as optional subjects in madrassas all over the state from the next academic session.

At present, madrasas in the state offer Maths, Science, Ayush and Social Science as optional subjects.

A six-member lower committee of the board on Wednesday cleared the proposal for inclusion of Sanskrit and Computer Science as optional subjects, UMEB deputy registrar Akhlaq Ahmad said.

The proposal will now be moved to the upper committee of the board for approval.

The approval to include Sanskrit in the syllabus comes days after the Madrasa Welfare Society of Uttarakhand approached the state government to include Sanskrit as one of the subjects in the syllabus.
