I heartily welcome you to KSJM, the KSJM is to provide quality education. It should consist of a series of enhancements each raising the individual to a higher level of awareness and development of an individual and thereby contribute to the productive development of the state and the country.
As Madarsa education is very common among the Minorities in India. Hundreds of thousand Minority children acquire their primary, and perhaps the only formal education in these madarsas. As a result they are quite backward in science education. A section of scholars held madarsa education responsible for the poor socio-economic conditions of Indian Minorities . Due to the absence of modern education the madarsa trained persons are unable to improve their own material prosperity or to provide proper leadership to their Minority community.
Our region is the most backward both educationally and economically and falling at the abysmal level of the development. Besides other socio-economic reasons, lack of scientific education and rigid traditional culture are held important reasons of backwardness.
The purpose of the present study is to analyze whether madarsa education becomes a barrier in promoting modern education or whether institutions did help improve socio-economic conditions of madarsa trained persons.
As Madrasa is contributing for expansion of education, Madrasas in India, even after Independence of the country, have rendered invaluable services to the development of the community and the country. They have played a silent but significant role in educating millions of Muslim population of the country. The services of Madrasas are not limited to spreading literacy; but also encompass social, political and academic fields. Infact the educational development of Muslim community can’t be imagined without the Madrasas and maktabs. Ulema produced by these Madrasas provide leadership not only in religious matters but also in social & political sphers as well. Starting from Shah Waliullah to the great Ulema like Moulan Abul A’la Maududi, Moulana Abul Kalam Azad and Moulan Syed Abul Hasan Ali al-Nadwi have been the most prominent personalities among Muslim leaders. They were basically the products of Madrasas and they had a close affinity with the Madrasa education. Madrasa education is a significant part of the History of Muslim education and Islamic studies in India.
The British period is generally considered a period of strong set back to Indian education system. But at the same time; Madrasa education also continued, flourished and saved Indian Muslims from being affected by the western culture, After independence; India became a democratic and secular country. There are many persons who believe that due to the influence of secularism in India, the religious educational institutions have lost their relevance. But, in fact; the Madrasa education system is still strong in their own position and has been increasing and progressing by leaps and bounds in the country. Mr. Madhavrao Scindhia, the then Minister of Human Resources Development (HRD) while adrassing a muslim education conference held in Delhi on May 7, 1995, stated that there were 125000 Madrassas in India during the time of Mughal reign in India. The report of all India survey by Hamdarad education society published in the June 1996 confirmed the said figure Besides the figures, the contribution of Madrasa education in India has been so important that there can’t be imagined the educational development of Muslim community by neglecting the Madrasas and Maktabs. Ulema produced by these Madrasas provide leadership not only in religious matters but also in social & political spheres as well.
It is because of this prominent role of Madrasas, the common masses and particularly the intellectual groups call the Madrasas and pay respect and honour to these institutions.
I wish you all the best for a successful career and life.
