The Uttar Pradesh Madrasa board had conducted Urdu Journalism exam for 1st and 2nd semesters recently in June, 2013. This is a one year correspondence course for Urdu journalism. This exam is actually a step taken by the Department of Minorities for encouraging impact of Urdu and makes it learn by the community people. Students who have passed 12th or equivalent are considered eligible for attending the exam.
Madarsa literally means ‘a place where learning and studying are done’. In India, there are around 30,000 operating madrasas. The majority of these schools follow the Hanafi school of thought. The religious establishment forms part of the mainly two large divisions within the country, namely the Deobandis, who dominate in numbers. Ministry of Government of India has recently declared that a Central Madrasa Board would be set up. This will enhance the education system of madrasas in India. Though the madrasas impart Quranic education mainly, efforts are on to include Mathematics, Computers and science in the curriculum.
The exam for this year is over. Candidates appeared in good number to give the exam. And now they are waiting for their result which is going to be published soon.
