The Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (JIH) Education Board has urged the Union Government to increase the allocation for minorities to cater to their educational needs in the upcoming budget.
The JIH Markazi Taleemi Board (Education Board) organised an online conference on the ‘Upcoming budget-2022-23: Education and Minority concerns’. Experts, economists, academicians, educationists, journalists and intellectuals from different states participated in the meeting.
The organization pointed out that they were not properly monitored nor even was it disclosed how many students belonging to minorities benefited from these schemes. «The government cut the education spending for minorities in last year’s budget. The allocations for the minorities have been slashed from Rs 5,000 crore to Rs 4,800 crore. Whereas, at present at least Rs 10,000 crore is required to cater to their education needs,» it added.
The JIH stated that minorities play a vital role in any democratic country. Therefore, it is crucial to always keep in mind their sustainable development while making a project or plan, particularly their education budget.
