The Supreme Court decision to keep minorities' educational institutions, mainly the missionary schools and madarsas out of the purview of the Right to Education Act has been welcomed by the organizations running these schools. The Supreme Court on Thursday 12th April, 2012 ordered that the Right to Education Act, 2009 would not apply to the schools run by Minority Communities and not aided by government.
Reacting to the order, the Archbishop of Bhopal, Dr Leo Cornelio said those students who have already taken admission as per the RTE Act would continue. Madhya Pradesh Madarsa board chairman Rashid Khan said, "The decision of the SE would not have much impact on the Madarsa institutions or students in general. We welcome the move." Of the 6,000 Madarsa's registered with the board only 1,400 are aided by the government. From the time of the Act come into existence, Isai Mahasangh and Catholic Council of Bishops had objected to its misuse by the State Government. The mahasangh has welcomed the decisions of the SC and the Archbishop. Isai Mahasangh coordinator Fr. Anand Muttungal said, "Christian community was never against the RTE Act, but objected to its misuse. Church will continue to provide educational services to the poor and the marginalized. The case in this regard, pending in the Madhya Pradesh high court since 2011, would also be withdrawn." Isai Mahasangh State general secretary Jerry Paul said “the state government had appointed its representative on the management committee of the minority institutions to take advantage of the RTE”. We ask the government to withdraw its orders and leave the minority-run institutions undisturbed.
