The New Education Policy will exacerbate social disparity: Jamaat-e-Islami Hind

New Delhi: The Markazi Talimi Board (Central Education Board) of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind has reacted to the New Education Policy and appreciated some of its features while criticizing others. In a statement to the media, the Chairman of the Jamaat’s Markazi Talimi Board, Mr. Nusrat Ali commented on its features while enumerating some of its aspects, namely:

1. The New Education Policy (NEP) 2020 was rolled out by the government without presenting it in Parliament for discussion. Prior to this all the education policies passed by the then governments were elaborately discussed in Parliament. This shows that the government does not want to adopt democratic practices. Jamaat e Islami Hind, urges to the government to debate it in Parliament.

2. The vision of the policy is not explicit and lacks clarity. It looks more materialistic rather than focused on social change. Jamaat-e-Islami Hind is of the opinion that our country requires an education policy, which targets social change by infusing social justice, democratic values, equality and better understanding of faiths.

3. The policy has used the term of holistic and integrated approach of education but it could not explain what should be the definition of holistic approach in the Indian context. Jamaat e Islami Hind, strongly feels that progress, happiness and peace in society can be achieved by adopting a holistic approach to education. It can be achieved by designing primary school and secondary school syllabi and curriculum integrated with values. These values should be drawn from universal values common in all the faiths and are present in our Constitution.

4. The system of graded institutions of higher learning, the permission to high rated universities and permission for private universities will commodify our education system and it will be accessible and affordable only to the rich students. This will lead to greater social disparities and negatively affect social justice – the essence of our Constitution.

5. Making primary education in mother tongue is a good policy but its implementation requires tough measures.

6. Early childhood education requires training of the child’s mentors and the child’s mothers too, otherwise it will become a middle class phenomenon and provide a huge market for their exploitation and the commercialization of educational institutions.

7. Skill development programme is a long awaited idea but it will be poorly implemented if given to the private institutions.

8. The policy has envisaged an increase in the general enrolment ratio from 26 percent to 50 percent. This is an ambitious goal. To achieve this public spending should be increased. The government should plan to spend around 8 percent of its GDP for education.

9. The policy says that the “e-content” for eight languages will be developed but it does not include Urdu. If the policy aims at improving the overall condition of deprived communities, it should develop “e-content” in Urdu too.

10. The inclusion of free and compulsory education from pre-primary to 18 years is a welcome step.

11. Education being a state subject, the merger of various education bodies into one central unit will make it highly centralized and this will be a blow to our federal polity.

Jamaat e Islami Hind demands that the government should take into consideration the critical exposition of the policy made by experts. It should rectify the various shortcomings and weaknesses in the NEP 2020 and get it passed in Parliament.

Demand for re-construction of Shaheed Mosque on the same site at the Secretariat.

Press note

Demand for re-construction of Shaheed Mosque on the same site at Secretariat. – اردو میں پڑھیں

“Chief Minister should break his silence, let the government make a clear announcement of immediate construction of mosque at the same place” – Maulana Hamid Mohammad Khan Ameer of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind, Telangana.

Maulana Hamid Mohammad Khan, Ameer of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind Telangana, in a statement issued to newspapers, urged the state government to formally announce the reconstruction of Hashmi Mosque and Masjid Daftar-e-Mutamdi in the Secretariat premises. Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao should break his silence on this issue and immediately announce the reconstruction of the Secretariat’s martyred mosques on the same site. The Chief Minister termed the martyrdom of these two mosques and the demolition of a temple as an accident and made a failed political attempt to reduce the seriousness of the incident. In this regard, his verbal regret and verbal promise to build on the same site at the expense of the government is nothing more than a political statement and it is of no importance to Muslims.

Maulana Hamid Mohammad Khan said that in the new Secretariat map no mention has been made of these mosques and temples. Despite the demands of all Muslim organizations and Ulema-e-Mashaikhs, the state government has not given any clear assurances to rectify this tragic incident. Muslims are in state of severe trauma and this trauma will only get deeper with time. Mr. Hamid Mohammad Khan said that it should be clear to the government that the land on which the mosque is built remains a mosque till day of judgment (Qayamat). It cannot be moved to any place and no land can be a substitute for it. Neither the Waqf Board nor the Muslims have the authority to give it. He demanded that in view of the sentiments and feelings of Muslims and the sanctity and importance of mosques, the state government should immediately announce the construction of mosques at the same place at its own expense and restore its declining reputation among the people.

At the same time, these mosques should be identified at the same place in the map of the new secretariat building. This solution will also be a symbol of the survival of the traditional religious tolerance of the state of Telangana and the secular policy of the government. Maulana Hamid Mohammad Khan said that if the government fails in this decision then the people will have no choice but to protest by adopting democratic and constitutional methods.
