Ebtedayee madrasa teachers call off hunger strike

After an eight days of hunger strike at a stretch, teachers of Ebtedayee madrasas have called off their strike on Tuesday as the government pledged to meet the demand to nationalise their educational institutions across the country.

 

The strike ended after a meeting between teachers representatives and the education minister.

 

Teachers started the hunger strike on Jan 8 in front of the National Press Club after staying there for a sit-in protest since Jan 1.

 

The strike ended around 2pm, when Secretary to the Education Ministry’s Madrasa Division Md Alamgir appeared before the demonstrators and announced the government’s decision.
