The government has declared shut the Darul Uloom Moinul Islam madrasa in Hathazari upazila of Chattogram until further notice.
The Ministry of Education issued an order on Thursday with an immediate effect.
The order was signed by Syed Asgar Ali, assistant secretary to Technical and Madrasa Education Division of the ministry.
According to the order, the government on August 24 gave permission to qawmi madrasas for arranging examinations equivalent to degree and masters level on condition of following the health guidelines amid the coronavirus pandemic. However, Darul Uloom Moinul Islam madrasa authorities failed to comply with the conditions.
Meanwhile, students of the madrasa staged demonstration on Wednesday with a six-point demand including the removal of the madrasa's assistant director Anas Madani and director general Allama Ahmad Shafi. Madani is also the son of Hefazat-e-Islam's Amir Allama Ahmad Shafi.
