Training in Urdu journalism to Madrasa students

Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Madrasa Board of Education has started imparting training to madrasa students in Urdu journalism in order to associate Urdu with a language of mass communication in addition to other languages.

According to the Registrar of Madrasa Board of Education, Javed Aslam, Hindi and English journalism have developed very much but virtually no attention has been paid to Urdu journalism. Hence we have decided to impart training in Urdu journalism to Aalim and Kaamil, which is equivalent to 12th class pass students and this training is already being imparted.

He said that the response from such students is good and more than 110 students have taken admission in it. He said that most of these students belong to madrasas who have got their names registered in the first batch. He said that with this initiative, a double purpose will be served because students who are reading Urdu will get employment opportunities and secondly Urdu also will be promoted and preserved.
