BJP state president Nandkumar Singh Chouhan added fuel to the fire in the controversy over Madhya Pradesh Madarsa Board orders to all madarsas to compulsorily hoist tricolor on Independence Day and send photographs of it by stating that there is nothing wrong in asking proof from madarsas.

While the principal opposition Congress links the step with a sentiment of mistrust, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party describes it as a constant process.

However, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh is of the view that why only ask the Madarsas to submit proof of Independence Day celebrations, if it is so necessary than why not all educational institutes be asked to submit proof.

Chouhan said here on Saturday, “Many Madarsas do not hoist tricolor, this thing has come to the fore on many occasions that is why there is nothing wrong in asking for proof of that.”

Meanwhile, former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Digvijay Singh while talking to media persons in Bhopal said asking proof only from Madarsas is wrong if at all it is necessary than the directives should be for all the educational institutes of the state.

MP Madarsa Board Chairman Syed Imad Uddin while talking to Absolute India said that it’s a routine order to celebrate the Independence Day. “It is a routine order to celebrate the I-Day and when the national flag is unfurled, the national anthem will also be sung,” he said.

Denouncing the directive as a “Tughlaqi firman,” Congress state spokesperson JP Dhanopiya said, “The Tricolour should flutter in all parts of the country but this must not be done forcefully.”

On the other hand, the saffron party’s state spokesman Hidayatullah Sheikh also said it is a regular order and it would be improper to associate it with another state.
