India's top court put on hold banning Islamic schools

NEW DELHI, 5 April: India’s Supreme Court has put on hold the lower court’s order banning Islamic madrassas in the country’s most populous state, Abad.

Lawyers pursuing the case say that the high court’s decision brought relief to students and teachers.

The Supreme Court’s decision came a few days before the nationwide elections, which are expected to be one-sided.

Concluding the decision, the High Court said that the decision of the lower court was a reversal of the Indian secular view and also said that the lower court did not consider the merits in the decision.

The lawyers said that the matter will be heard twice in July and till then everything will be as before.

Uttar Pradesh Madrasa Board Chairman Iftikhar Ahmad Javed welcomed the decision and said, “We were really worried regarding the future of about 16 lakh (1.6 million) students and now this order has come as a big relief for all of us.”
