Raipur: Mohan Bhagwat, the Sarasanghachalak (chief) of the RSS has stressed the need to impart primary education in native languages.
Bhagwat was speaking at the silver jubilee function of the Vidya Bharati institute in Raipur on Tuesday.
“If mother tongue is the medium of learning during the initial education, it makes learning easier in further education. This is not possible if one starts learning in a foreign language since childhood,” he said.
He added that many people who studied in their native language have served the country at the highest levels.
Stressing the need to first become well-grounded in native languages and only then to accomplish mastery over other languages, he said: “We should know our mother tongue. Hindi unites the entire country and the number of people who know Hindi is increasing. After having a complete knowledge of the mother tongue, we should also learn foreign languages to make our country shine at the international platforms.”
However, Bhagwat clarified that RSS is not opposed to the teaching of any foreign languages, only that learning of mother tongues should be given priority.
Indore, October 28: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that India is the land of Hindus but it does not exclude others.
“Hindustan is a land of Hindus. However, it does not mean that it does not belong to others. All those who were born in India, and their forefathers were from the land of Hindus would be called Hindu. Hence, it is called Hindutva and not Hinduism,” he said on Friday while addressing college-goers at ‘Shankhnad’ event here.
If those living in Germany are Germans, those in America are Americans, in the same way, every person living in Hindustan is Hindu, Bhagwat said.
Despite its diversity, India has consistently exhibited unity, he added.
Bhagwat said public participation was crucial for the development of the country and it could not be left solely to the government.
The progress of the government depended on the progress of society, he said.
Saying that change cannot be brought by force, Bhagwat asked for a change in “vision, conduct, thinking”.
“We are moving in that direction speedily,” he said.(IANS)

Rajesh, an activist for the RSS, was brutally murdered in Thiruvananthapuram
The Bharatiya Janta Party’s Kerala Unit has alleged Community Party of India’s members and followers for the red terror
Both the parties have a history of being in physical conflict frequently in the state
July 30, 2017: On Saturday, RSS Activist Rajesh Edvakode was found critically injured in the state capital Thiruvananthapuram. Hours after the attack, Rajesh’s body gave up and he died. The victim’s hand was chopped off allegedly by workers and followers of the Communist Party of India (CPI-M). This incident has once again highlighted the constant red terror crimes in India at the hands of the aggressive left ideology.
BJP has reacted by calling a state-wide strike. The Kerala unit of the party has alleged the CPI-M members of committing the gruesome murder and given the history of conflict between the two parties, it is understandable why. Also given the fact that Kerala is haunted by the red terror propagandists who admire the hammer and sickle too much, the BJP was quick to respond. Eight suspects have been arrested by the police and it has been revealed that they have links with the Communist Party.
Along the political violence, Rajesh, a 34-year-old follower of the RSS on which the BJP has founded its principles, has been murdered.
In the press statement, Manoj Abraham, Inspector General of Police stated, “The attack was by a gang of men involving CPM (Communist Party of India (Marxist) activists. However, there was a long history of enmity between one of the accused and the victim. We are also probing any angle of a political motive.”
Two days ago, there was a violent conflict between the CPI and BJP members. On Thursday evening, an incident broke out into a fight between the two parties. The left ideology adherents were triggered by an assault to a left wing youth flag. The triggered leftists then vandalized residences of BJP members. Initially, six RSS members were arrested by the police. Further, four CPI-M members were also arrested.
Hindu worker murdered by communist violence from ruling party in Kerala. Red terror a grim reality that haunts India. Must be stopped. https://t.co/9KULEnzm3E
Left wing youth members and the CPI-M counselor was caught on CCTV footage throwing stones at the BJP office. They too have been arrested.
The Communist Party in a press release denied any such accusations and allegations. However, given the political clashes in the past and the frequent approach of aggressiveness and extremism adopted by the leftists, the red terror problem, particularly in Kerala, needs to be addressed bringing all stakeholders together.
Kerala’s remarkable achievements as a forceful Indian state have been overshadowed by the rising political violence. Left wing aggressiveness is a reality in India, especially in certain states.
