Communalisation of education and culture by BJP-led government


The BJP has been actively pursuing the RSS agenda on education and culture. In doing so, it has undermined the credibility of our academic and cultural institutions, supressed the freedom of expression, trampled on the democratic and fundamental rights of the minorities and secular-minded people, and transformed in a big way the content of school education in the BJP-ruled states.

Thanks to the school texts introduced by them, lakhs of school children are


growing up with prejudice and hatred towards the minorities, and in total ignorance of our rich pluralistic and composite heritage. Enormous government funds are being pumped into implementing the Hindutva agenda; priorities of academic and cultural institutions are being changed with the same purpose; and there is no accountability of any kind to the Constitution, and to the purpose for which or the people for whom these institutions were designed in the first place.
