The Assam government will soon bring in a law to convert all government-run madrassas and Sanskrit tols (ashrams where Sanskrit is taught) into high schools and higher secondary schools, said Assam education minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Wednesday, reports India Today.

Sarma said this process would be completed in the next two months.

“These madrassas will function within a regulatory framework. We are bringing a law where government-run madrassas have to function under a regulatory framework and disclose the number of students enrolled. They will have to compulsorily teach general subjects along with religious one,” Himanta Biswa Sarma said.

Explaining the rationale for this, Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “Since the state is a secular institution, it can’t fund religious teaching.”
