BJP leader Satyapal Singh said that the initiative should have been taken a long time ago, citing "Vande Matarm" played a major part in our struggle for independence.

Students have been asked to sing songs on nationalism and discuss the history of August 15 and the freedom fighters. Following this, tributes will be paid to martyrs of India's freedom struggle.

Earlier in the day, the UP MSP issued a circular in this regard and asked all madrasas affiliated to it to comply with its orders. The notice also says that schools should click photographs and make videos of the event so as to encourage and repeat well-performed programs and activities in future events as well. The entire function has to be videographed.

He was overwhelmed for bagging this award and said, "This is my first global award and it will truly be remembered". We as creative people always wish to do more and I'm far far away from resting.

"However, the order to madrasas to take pictures of Independence Day celebrations, including hoisting of the Tricolour, cultural programmes on the occasion and tiranga rallies in the institutions, and to send them to the board clearly manifests lack of trust in the authorities of these educational institutions", another madrasa official said.

"It is a routine order to celebrate I-Day and when national flag is unfurled, national anthem will also be sung", said chairman of MP Madarsa Board.

The madarsas have also been asked to pay tribute to freedom fighters and organise cultural programmes. While photography has been done in the past, videography will be done for the first time this year.
