Madhya Pradesh Madarsa Board on Friday issued an advisory to Madarsas to hoist the national flag on Independence Day. He further said, "The madarsas do not get additional funds for celebrating national day functions and even if an order comes, it should be for all and not only for educational institutions imparting religious education of a particular community".

After the Madhya Pradesh Madarsa Board followed in the Uttar Pradesh Madrasa Shiksha Parishad's footsteps in ordering all 256 Madrasas in the state to unfurl the national flag and recite the national anthem on August 15, the Congress party on Sunday categorically stated that the saffron party didn't induce patriotism, it is in our DNA and should not be forced.

The UP government has said that the events to be held on August 15 by the madrassas should include hoisting the tricolour, singing the national anthem and paying tributes to freedom fighters.
