Azamgarh: Re-inventing itself to keep pace with the times, a century-old Islamic seminary in Azamgarh district not only has a broad based curriculum with science and computers but also a polytechnic to equip its students with vocational skills.

Established in 1908 at Saraimir town in Azamgarh, Madrasatul Islah is one of the oldest Islamic religious schools in the region.

Apart from the Quran, the madrassa also imparts knowledge in English, science, mathematics, political science, economics, Hindi and computers.

About 1,000 students from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, Uttarakhand and Maharashtra study here. Several alumni are doing research in various universities in India and abroad.

Fakhrul Islam Islahi, vice rector of Islah, says that modern education is not incompatible with Islam.

"We don't believe in differentiating between education," said Islah, who also heads the department of Arabic of Shibli National Post Graduate College in Azamgarh city.

"Science and mathematics are helpful to understand Islam and obey its commandments. It is difficult to solve inheritance questions and disputes without knowing mathematics," he said.
