For the upliftment of Muslim students, middle schools in various districts of Punjab would be opened, said Dilbagh Hussain, chairman of Punjab Muslim Welfare and Development Board in state advisory member committee's first meeting on Sunday. The meeting was organised at the Circuit House.

Talking to Hindustan Times, Dilbag Hussain said, "We have formed a 19-member state advisory committee in which we have decided to open middle schools for Muslim students. In this regard, we will discuss the matter with the state government so that they can provide aid to the schools. Currently, we have middle schools in Kapurthala and Mandi Gobindgarh."

Hussain said that after discussing the matter with the state government, he would open a middle school in Jalandhar district, which has no middle schools for Muslims. The idea is to provide opportunity to the students so that they can further study till Class 8, he added.
