Madrassa students get trained to aid in time of natural calamity

Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind, one of India's leading Islamic organization, is giving training to students enrolled in government-aided madrassas to become scouts and guides. The madrassa students are being trained to help people during emergencies and natural calamities including floods and earthquakes.

At present, the Jamiat is offering training to 50 students enrolled at madrassa Ashfaqia in Bareilly. Similar training had already been given at government-aided madrassas located in Shahjahanpur, Muzaffarnagar and Shamli. The members of the organization said that they will carry out this training at government-aided madrassas, schools and colleges across the country.

Talking to TOI, Mohammed Touheed, Bareilly secretary of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind and teacher at madrassa Ashfaqia said, "Authorities at many schools and colleges of the country train their students to become scouts and guides, but students enrolled in madrassas are deprived of such training. However, if they are trained, they can assist local administration at the time of emergencies and natural calamities, which can strike anytime."
