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.

  • RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) is a is an Indian right-wing
  • RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat expressed his views on Indian Army’s preparation in his speech to RSS workers in Muzaffarpur in Bihar
  • Kiren Rijiju said if the Constitution permits, RSS can go ahead with its interference in military matters.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh wants to re-mould the Indian State with a military which adheres to Hindutva, the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) has said.

This is the message that emerges from RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s speech to RSS workers in Muzaffarpur in Bihar that while the Army takes six to seven months to train its soldiers, the RSS can get its cadres ready for battle in two to three days, the CPI-M said.

“This remark has drawn widespread condemnation, with the main criticism being that the RSS chief had insulted the Indian army by claiming that the RSS can do a better job than the Army in training soldiers,” an editorial in the CPI-M journal “People’s Democracy,” said.

“While this criticism is valid, the intent of these remarks is much more serious,” it said. “The statement has revealed a vital aspect of the RSS outlook about the Army and the militarization of society.”

The editorial said: “What the RSS wants in the re-moulding of the Indian State is armed forces which adhere to Hindutva. For Bhagwat, the soldier in the Indian Army and the Swayamsevak of the RSS are on the same footing.

“Under the present Indian Constitution, such an integration of the Army and the RSS is not possible.

That is why, both the RSS clarification and the defence put out by (Minister of State for home) Kiren Rijiju makes this qualification that if the Constitution permits, the RSS can go ahead with its interference in military matters.

“The implication is ominous: a re-worked Constitution should enable this to happen.”
