Madrasah education board bill-2020 passed in parliament

Parliament today passed "Bangladesh Madrasah Education Board Bill-2020″ to replace a 1978 ordinance in this regard.

As per Article 28 of the proposed law, there'll be (legal) protection of activities the Madrasah Education has conducted since 1978.

The activities will be considered done under this (proposed) law and no activity (of the previous time) can be challenged as illegal.

Education Minister Dipu Moni placed the bill which was passed by voice vote.

Important changes brought in the bill include declaring employees of the board as public servants and their retirement age fixed at 60 years like all other education boards.

In December last year, the cabinet approved the bill in principle bringing some amendments to the existing Madrasah Education Ordinance, 1978 after the Supreme Court declared all laws made during military regimes illegal.
