Madarsa education is very common among the Muslims in India. Hundreds of thousands of Muslim children acquire their primary, and perhaps the only, formal education in these madarsas with a cursory knowledge of modern education. As a result they are lagging behind in science education and their representation and participation in the scientific activity of the country is woefully low. As such they are unable to earn sufficiently to lead a comfortable life and provide proper leadership to their community to face the challenges of the modern world. The purpose of the present study is to analyse whether madarsa education becomes a barrier in promoting modern and higher education and secondly how far these institutions helped improve socio-economic conditions of madarsa trained persons in the District of Mewat (Haryana). In the absence of secondary data, the present study is based on the primary data collected through both extensive and intensive field work. A total of 2,350 households were surveyed and information regarding demographic, socio-economic and environmental conditions of these households was collected. Such a varied nature of data was assigned weightage according to their importance and finally the composite score was calculated to find out the levels of the socio-economic conditions of madarsa trained persons.

itself gives a score of 1 (equivalent priority). Therefore, 1 is assigned to all elements on the diagonal of the pair-wise comparison matrix ( Mahmoodzadeh, 2010 : 92). B. Calculation of criteria weighting: This stage includes the following operations: a) adding up the values of each column of the pair-wise comparison matrix; b) dividing each element of the matrix by its column total (the resulting matrix is called normalised pair-wise comparison matrix); (c) computing the average of the elements in each row of the normalised matrix. These averages will give an

household’s score, where assets that are more unequally distributed will have a higher weight. The relative ranking of households using their scores is then used as a measure of SES ( Filmer and Pritchett, 2001 ). However, PCA is designed to be used on continuous, normally-distributed data and so its application to data sets that contain categorical variables, as is often the case with census data, is considered to be inappropriate ( Booysen et al., 2008 ; Howe et al., 2008 ). Multiple Correspondence Analysis (MCA) is more appropriate, as it is the only multivariate

¯ ) $$ \sum{_{j}}{{w}_{ij}}\left( {{x}_{j}}-\overline{x} \right)$$ A positive Moran’s index that is statistically significant shows the presence of spatial dependence, and a significant negative index suggests a pattern of variation. To evaluate the significance of Moran’s I , the standard deviate, or z-score of the index is employed based on the hypothesis of random distribution of values of x ( Shin, Agnew, 2007 ). The value of I is significant when a Z-statistics created with the mean and variance of I approaches a normal distribution ( Rogerson, 2006 ). Moran

organisation operates. Most of the NGO leaders were not present on social media. The most active individuals were: Wojciech Wilk of the Polish Center for International Aid and Janina Ochojska of Polish Humanitarian Action. The former gained the highest score in terms of LinkedIn presence, and the latter on Twitter. These two leaders have years of field experience in the area of development and humanitarian assistance, as well as established contacts with international organisations. The leaders of religious organisations tended to ignore Twitter and Linked-In. The

the male respondents had higher mean ratings than did the female respondents for all factors except NECI, in which case the scores were almost equal. The difference detected was found to be significant at a 5% level for both PSCI and PENI. The finding indicates a gender effect for the positive sociocultural and environmental impacts of tourism development in the area, with men scoring the positive impacts significantly higher than did the women, on average. The above might indicate that the men involved were more supportive of their sociocultural and environmental
