Dawrah-e-Hadith recognition gazetted
Following Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina's announcement, the government has issued an order recognising a top Qawmi madrasa degree as equivalent to post-graduate degrees.
The education ministry, in the order issued on Thursday night, noted that the Dawrah-e-Hadith certificate, which the Qawmi madrasas confer on pupils with the fundamentals of Darul Uloom Deoband as the basis, has been accorded the status of Masters degree (Islamic Studies and Arabic).
The prime minister made the announcement during a meeting with Qawmi madrasa representatives at Ganabhaban in Dhaka on Tuesday.
“With this recognition, a large number of madrasa students will now choose the right path and be able to apply for government jobs. Since their degree had not been recognised, they were deprived of many opportunities,” Sheikh Hasina said. source – bdnews24.com
