Allahabad: The Allahabad HC on Tuesday ordered the Uttar Pradesh government to ensure that madrassas across the state hoist the national flag on Independence Day and Republic Day.


A bench consisting of Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justice Yashwant Verma has also directed the state government to "issue necessary directions in this regard".


The judgment came as the court was hearing a PIL, which demanded that the national flag is hoisted at madrassas on August 15 as well as January 26, in a similar manner it is done at various offices and government-controlled institutions.


The PIL was filed by Arun Gaur, who is a resident of Aligarh.


Earlier on the occasion of Independence Day this year, the Darul Uloom Deoband has directed all the madrassas to hoist the tricolour and celebrate the day with enthusiasm.

 

Subsequently, the court also asked the government to file a counter-affidavit, while fixing September 22 as the date for the next hearing.
