After UP, Madhya Pradesh Madrasa Board on Friday issued an advisory to all Madrasas in the state to unfurl the national flag and recite national anthem on Independence Day.
The board also directed the youth to follow the order and to take out a 'Tiranga rally' on the I-Day. The circular stated that along with photographs, videos of the programmes must be shot as well.
The chairman of the MP Madrasa Board, Syed Imad Uddin, told ANI that it's a routine order to celebrate the Independence Day.
"It is a routine order to celebrate the I-Day and when the national flag is unfurled, the national anthem will also be sung," he said.
The development comes after the Uttar Pradesh MSP issued a circular in this regard and asked all madrasas affiliated to it to comply with its orders.
The move holds significance since this is probably the first time that the madrasas have been asked to hold cultural programmes on Independence Day.
