The Assam government to disband the madrassa board in the state. Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the decision has been taken based on certain research. Sarma added that the private madrassas will be regulated and not closed. "Madrassa education board will be closed in Assam based on research. During research, the students were asked about their aim in life. Most of them said they want to be doctors, engineers, professors, etc. Decision to put students on madrassas is mostly taken by parents. Madrassa students don't realise that their stream will limit career growth," he said. The state education minister added, "We spend 260 crore annually and so 610 Madrassas will be closed. Private madrassas can run but we are bringing some regulations."
