Allahabad HC upholds the decision of UP Madarsa Shiksha Board
Allahabad: The Allahabad High Court on Friday upheld the decision of UP Madarsa Shiksha Board and the state government whereby a decision was taken to allot the centres for examination of the students of madarsa in recognised schools by the UP Board.
This order was passed by Justice MK Gupta on a writ petition filed by Afrid and others, who had challenged the decision of the Madarsa board on the ground that the examination centres of the Arabi-farsi examination 2016and its centres in Intermediate schools, are allotted on the instance of concerned minister, Azam Khan.
Appearing for the state Q H Siddiqui, Additional Advocate General and Ramesh Upadhyay Chief Standing Counsel pointed out the bench that the decision to allot centres in the schools of UP Board was taken to check the mass copying by the students. They informed that there are 2628 Madarsas of which 4,23,511 students are appearing in the examinations of the Madarsas board for which 755 schools of UP Board have been allotted as examination centres
