Tayyab Trust, a Deoband based NGO, has successfully trained & placed its first batch of Skill Training Program specially developed for the graduates of Madarsa. Hundreds of scholars and madarsa students attended a certificate ceremony organized by the Trust in which Asim Qasmi, chairman of Tayyab Trust explained that It is the call of the hour that Madarsa youths are provided employable skills so that they have equal opportunity to join in the main stream workforce and equally participate in the growth of the country as do their peers in colleges and universities. Added to that, he said “Their dreams of a successful life have long been ignored by the community leaders and the Government both, but it is time that we train and place them in the formal employment sector of the country”.

Justice Sachar Committee report declared in 2006 that 3% of the Muslims in India avail madarsa education, which is not recognized by the government or the private education boards, and additionally these youths have been exempted from the Right to Education Act as well. “Government must custom design skill training courses for the madarsa students keeping in view their special circumstances and objective in life” said Moulana Sufiyan Qasmi, Mohtamim Darul Uloom Waqf Deoband. Moulana Salim Qasmi, the highly respected scholar of deobandi movement, supported the initiative and promised all possible support to Tayyab Trust.
