As per a circular of the Registrar of UP Madarsa Education Board issued earlier this month, all recognized state-funded madarsas that on Independence Day, flag hoisting and recitation of National Anthem will take place at 8 am.

After the Uttar Pradesh Madrasa Shiksha Parishad issued a circular on Friday directing all madrasas affiliated to it to unfurl the national flag and recite the national anthem on August 15, the Jamat Raza-E-Mustafa has said that the Bareilly qazi has asked the Barelvi madrasas to celebrate the I-Day but not sing the national anthem.

On August 11, the Madhya Pradesh Madarsa Board had ordered all 256 madrasas in the state to unfurl the national flag and recite the national anthem on August 15. After this, tribute will be paid to the martyrs of freedom struggle.

The board issued a circular to this effect on August 10, in which it also asked the heads of these madarsas to click and e-mail photographs of the I-Day activities.

The circular also calls for holding cultural programmes based on the theme of national unity, along with sports activities.

In the past, there have been allegations that some madrasas did not hoist the National Flag on Independence Day. Syed Imamuddin, on the occasion of Independence Day, madarsa administrators will hoist the tricolour, take out rallies or join other such rallies and organise cultural programmes.

There are around 8,000 madrasas in the state that are recognised by the parishad.

There are around 2.5 lakh students enrolled in these registered madrasas.

The madarsas have also been asked to pay tribute to freedom fighters and organise cultural programmes.

The state government has also warned the madrasas that if the directives aren't followed, the state will then withdraw government aid to these institutions.

"Videography will be done so that videos of the best programmes could be played in madrasas and students could take inspiration from them..."
