“The affidavit should provide specific details regarding the curriculum, the mode of selection and appointment of staff, the control and management of the Madarsa, and address the concerns raised about religious education imparted through these institutions,” the bench of chief justice Augustine George Masih and justice Vinit Kumar Mathur ordered.  The bench hearing a public interest litigation (PIL) filed by petitioner Mukesh Jain. Chief minister Ashok Gehlot-led government launched the Madrasa Modernization Scheme under which it said that the state will provide financial assistance of up to Rs.25 lakh for the development of madrassas in Rajasthan.  Counsel Motisingh Rajpurohit, representing the petitioner, said India is a secular and democratic nation, where minorities have been granted additional fundamental rights through Articles 29 and 30 of the Constitution, however, “the Rajasthan Madarsa Board Act 2020, which was notified in the Rajasthan Gazette on September 23, 2020, promotes a particular religious ideology and is in conflict with the principles of a secular democratic state”.
