The Karnataka government has made it compulsory for the madrasas to hoist the national tricolour from August 11 to 17 to mark the ‘Amrit Mahotsav’ of Indian Independence.
The order is applicable to government, aided, private and unaided schools, colleges, educational institutions and madrasas. Furthermore even the teaching and non-teaching faculty have been directed to hoist the national flag on their residences to ensure success of ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign.
A IANS report quoting sources in the Education Department said that the Commissioner of Public Instruction Department will chalk out ways to implement the order in letter and spirit.
The Block Education Officers (BEO) will monitor hoisting of the flags at the grassroots level in the state. Separate orders will be released soon by fixing responsibilities by the department, said the sources.
The state education department has been told that those who get government facilities should follow the rules and regulations and there should not be any reason or pretext not to hoist the Tricolour. The rule will also apply to the government, aided, private and unaided schools, colleges, educational institutions and madrasas.
The government has directed a competition of singing patriotic songs, essays, quizzes and drawings for the students.
