With singing of nationwide anthem made obligatory in all madrassas in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Narottam Mishra on Friday mentioned an analogous step may very well be thought-about within the state.
He made the assertion in response to a question requested by reporters.
Speaking individually, Madhya Pradesh BJP chief Vishnu Dutt Sharma mentioned ‘Jana Gana Mana’ needs to be recited in all academic establishments throughout the nation.
Singing of nationwide anthem “Jana Gana Mana” has been made obligatory in any respect madrassas in Uttar Pradesh beginning Thursday.
The Registrar of the Uttar Pradesh Madrassa Education Board issued an order to this impact to all of the District Minority Welfare Officers on May 9.
Talking to reporters, minister Mishra mentioned the nationwide anthem needs to be sung all over the place.
“It is a good thing. It is a national anthem and it can be sung everywhere,” he mentioned.
When requested whether or not an analogous choice may very well be applied in MP, Mishra mentioned, “It is matter of consideration…It can be considered.”
Replying to a question whether or not the nationwide anthem needs to be sung in madrassas in Madhya Pradesh as effectively, state BJP president Sharma mentioned, “We are not asking anyone to sing the national anthem in Pakistan. We are just asking for educational institutions situated in Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and all corners of the country to sing the national anthem and national song and slogans of ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’.”
“If such a thing is happening and such a decision has been taken, then it is a welcome step,” he mentioned.
