RSS chief blames British for destroying Indian education system


Indore: Rashtriya Swaysevak Sangh(RSS) Chief Mohan Bhagwat on Saturday said that British copied the traditional Indian education system and presented it as the county education system in England.

However, British rulers implemented such an education system that handicapped Indian minds.

Speaking at the concluding ceremony of “Vishva Sangha Shivir”, in Indore, Bhagwat said that the British destroyed traditional education system in India but took the same system to their own country and implemented it as the country education system.

RSS supremo added that when British came to our country, India had 70 per cent of the literacy rate while England had only 17 per cent. However, forced foreign education system left India in tatters. He said that Britain had the desire to make India a colony for forever and they realized that to do that they need to destroy all the good local things and, as a result, Indians lose their self-respect.

In a bid to make India a colony forever, Britain realized that they needed to corrode the country’s culture and heritage. Their atrocious administration made Indians lose their self-respect.

He further said that the world is fighting the struggles between various viewpoints.

A near 200-year of colonial rule hurt India in all possible way. Furthermore, a large portion of the population is still having the colonial hangover.  A lot of people have this percept that knowing English escalates their social status.

The biggest problem lies in the mind that people who believe that they need English to prove their intelligence or abilities. Unfortunately Indian system in the past 70 years has failed not to change this mindset. On the contrary, the number of students studying in the English medium is increasing by leaps and bounds.

It might be mentioned that language being the main base of any culture and education system holds the key to revival.

With most senior leaders in the BJP having retired from active politics, the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) is now looking towards building a new leadership. Later this month, the RSS will be holding camps in Uttar Pradesh to discuss ways to identify and groom young leaders.

According to a senior RSS functionary in Lucknow, the first camp in this regard will be held in Jhansi, possibly on June 29 and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat will be attending it. Another camp is scheduled to be held in Lucknow.

“After Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, there seems to be a dearth of second rung leadership in the bhBJP. There is a need to develop leadership that will carry forward the work initiated by these two leaders.

“Rajnath Singh is a senior leader, but his age is 67. He would have crossed 70 by the time the next general elections are held in 2024. We have to identify and inculcate leadership qualities in the younger lot,” the functionary said.

He further said that identifying young talent that could be groomed for greater responsibilities was a continuous process in the organisation and it never stopped.

“It is not a sudden decision but the RSS leadership always has a vision for the future and thinks ahead. We keep finding young people with leadership skills,” the functionary added.

Earlier this month, the RSS chief had underlined the need for checking misuse of power at a four-day camp that he addressed in Kanpur.

“Those getting elected in a democratic set-up have immense power, but this does not mean that it should be misused. If the government falters at any point of time, the Sangh will give it advice and suggestions with a positive point of view,” he had said.

The RSS chief had also discussed the topics of nationalism, social equality and service in his interaction with over 600 volunteers. He also focused on qualitative development of the Sangh volunteers and apprised them of his views on dedication towards society.

The RSS leadership is also expected to come to Lucknow for a separate camp at the end of this month. In Lucknow, the RSS leaders will pay homage to senior journalist Rajnath Singh Surya, who passed away earlier this month. Surya was also a senior RSS functionary.

Officially, however, the RSS office bearers said that they had yet to receive any programme of Bhagwat and said that such camps were a ‘routine affair’. (IANS)
