New Delhi: Central government has launched Tehreek-e-Taleem scheme in 100 districts of the country to take government’s educational programmes to the minority communities. Jamia Millia Islamia played key role in providing training to teachers under the scheme. 50 pc women teachers also benefited from the scheme. Such training programmes will fulfil Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s dream of ‘Quran in one hand and computer in other.’ These views were expressed by union minister for minority affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi. He told this while addressing the 100th meeting of 57th General Body of Maulana Azad Education Foundation.
During the programme teachers of 40 schools of north India run by minority welfare ministry who completed the residential training at Jamia Millia Islamia were given certificates. These teachers will teach Science, Maths, Computer, Hindi and English.
On the occasion Mr Naqvi said central government has launched the campaign on war footing to bring madrasa and minority institutions to mainstream.
