Earlier in the day, UP Madarsa Shiksha Parishad had directed all Madarsas in the state to unfurl national flag and recite national anthem on August 15.
In Mau, District Madarsa Management Association chief Arshad Nomani said that the UP government's order casts aspersions on the integrity and sincerity of madarsas whereas these institutions played an important role in the Independence movement of the country. "As it is we have been celebrating Independence Day with gaiety and zeal, then what was the need for a circular but a political motive".
Madhya Pradesh Madarsa Board on Friday issued an advisory to Madarsas to hoist the national flag on Independence Day. After this, tribute will be paid to the martyrs of freedom struggle. Students are also asked to sing songs based on nationalism. The entire function has to be videographed. The videos of the Independence Day programmes at various madrasas would be sent to the district minority officer.

I am gay and about to marry fiancé, something Mr Allister opposes, and I can certainly say that my life is not defined by sex. He defended the feature, saying it was a "tongue-in-cheek" piece, based on the comments of "hundreds" of social media users.
At present, around there are 8,000 recognised madrasas in UP of these, 560 are fully aided by the state. Sources said that in the past, some madrasas had argued that their students know only Urdu and were not fluent in Hindi.
Talking to IANS, Imamuddin said that there was neither anything new about the directive, nor it was being issued for the first time. The CBSE circular had also listed similar cultural activities which could be organized by all affiliated schools on August 15. The circular stated that along with photographs, videos of the programmes must be shot as well.
