Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government has apparently decided to take stern action against the madrasas which did not follow the orders of hoisting the national flag and recite national anthem on occasion of Independence Day (August 15).

After receiving the complaints, Bareilly Divisional Commissioner Dr PV Jaganmohan said, "Strict action will be taken against those madrasas which have disobeyed the government orders. Such institutions may be dealt under Prevention of National Honour Act and National Security Act (NSA)."

According to the sources, there were around 150 madrasas across the state which did not follow the government orders, in which it had asked all such education institutions to hoist the tricolour and recite the national anthem on I-Day. The order had also asked the madarsas to do videography of the entire celebrations.

The Divisional Commissioner further said that the complainant have been asked to produce concrete proofs to prove their claim. "A case will be registered against those madrasas which would accept in written that they did not hoist the national flag and recite national anthem."

Bareilly's Kazi Maulana Asjad Raza Khan had already declared, "The national anthem is anti-Islamic as it contains some words which are prohibited in our religion."

Similarly, Dargah Alahazrat had also ordered the madrasas across the state not to recite the national anthem.
