The government has asked to close all residential and non-residential madrasas including Qawmi madrasas except the orphanage. The instruction was given in a notification of the Ministry of Education on Tuesday afternoon.
The notification said that the lockdown is currently in force in the country. Earlier, the government decided to stop educational activities in all institutions of the country. But despite government directives, some residential and non-residential madrassas are still open in different parts of the country, which poses a serious health risk in the current Covid-19 situation.
In this situation, it was requested to close all madrasas (residential and non-residential) including Qawmi Madrasa (except orphanages) till further notice. No laxness can be shown in following this instruction.
