And here is the best news of the Week - A Hindu girl is ranked sixth in the Class X results of Madrasah Board in West Bengal. Only 15 years of age, she has sprung the surprise. According to the results published by the West Bengal Board of Madrasah Education, the student scored 719 marks out of 800. Her name is Mou Halder and she sprang this surprise on Tuesday. She is a student of Bogdhara Siddikiya High Madrasah in Bankura district. Her father is a farmer.
According to the brilliant girl, she had studied primary school
till Class IV. As the High School was about eight km away through the
forest lands, she got admitted in Siddikiya Madrasah. She had about a
dozen boys and girls in her class from Hindu families.
The teacher at Siddikiya Madrash informed that students and their
parents had no hesitation in sending their wards to Madrasahs where
they have to study Arabic and Islam Parichay. The high school is far
off from here and transportation is a problem for children.
After obtaining such good marks, Mou, who wants to become a
doctor, will continue higher secondary studies in the same
institution. In the merit list published by the West Bengal Board of
Madrasah Education, eight among the top ten rank holders are girls.
Madrasah follows modern curriculum and the only addition were
Arabic and Islamic studies. In every High Madrasah institute of the State you
will find Hindu students and their number is growing every year.
