The officials of the Uttrakhand Madarsa Education Board on Friday rejected the plea of including Sanskrit education in the madarsas across the state and called it unfeasible. The society is planning to take up Sanskrit as a subject for Muslim students. Madarsa Welfare Society (MWS) has 207 representatives across Dehradun, Haridwar, Nainital and Udam Singh Nagar districts which work towards welfare of the madarsas. They have requested the Chief Minister Trivendra Rawat  to include Sanskrit as one of the subjects under funded Scheme to Provide Quality Education in Madrasas (SPQM).

According to “All 207 madarsas that we are connected with, are welcoming of the idea of including Sanskrit in their curriculum. We want the madarsa educated students to be able to pursue courses in Ayurveda studies, which is currently impossible since our students don’t have any understanding of the language integral to Ayurveda studies (Sanskrit).”
