Teachers slam history changes

Calicut: A group of teachers and research scholars of Calicut and Kannur Universities has criticised the move of the Union ministry of Human Resources Development to implement the agenda of Sangh Parivar as part of saffronisation of education in the country.

The Calicut University Head of Department of History, Dr. SM Muhammad Koya, Dr. KNN Elayath and Dr. C Rajendran, professor of Sanskrit, and the convener of All Kerala Research Scholars Association, CS Sunidharan, in a joint statement here today condemned the action of the authorities in deleting some of the significant portions from the history books of the CBSE syllabus.

They said that these chapters removed from the textbooks were relevant and authentic topics based on the studies conducted by noted historians on evolution of the age-old caste system in India. The teachers had also been warned no to discuss these subjects in their course of study.

The banning of a text “Holy Cow” giving ample evidence to the fact that Brahmins ate beef was an example of the new diktat of the BJP-led Union Government, they said. Some of the deletions were authored by well-known historians, including Ms. Romila Thapar, RS Sharma and Satish Chandra. These acts were a despotic step to deny the students and the general public to know the real history of a particular social system that shaped up during a process of time. Infringing into the freedom of the secular historians was an attempt of the communal forces to implement their hidden agenda of making the nation into a Hindu state, they pointed out. They also alleged that the Union Government was distorting history and modern science and instead cooking up stories as historians to suit its own advantage of implementing its agenda of saffronisation of education.

Comment:

It was purely an academic discussion in the Calicut University history department slamming all political parties for indulging in distortion of Indian history (which has always remained secular) mainly for gaining political mileage. It was not directed towards any specific political party.
