Allahabad: The Allahabad High Court has backed the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government’s order to sing national anthem in madrasas. The court today said it is a mandate for every madrasa to do so.
The court’s ruling said that everyone should respect the national anthem and the national flag.
The HC has also rejected the plea seeking relief for madrasas in Uttar Pradesh from singing the national anthem.
Yogi government on the occasion of Independence Day passed an order demanding a mandatory national anthem and flag hoisting in madrasas.
The government also asked madarsas affiliated to the Uttar Pradesh Madarsa Shiksha Parishad to pay tribute to freedom fighters and organise cultural programmes on August 15.
