The History Sangh Parivar Fears Will Be Taught In Kerala Textbooks : CM

Web Desk(Tvm)Updated: Saturday May 13, 2023

Kollam : Some people are trying to sow seeds of hatre in Kerala; One must exercise due caution against falsified allegations and propaganda  in this regard, said Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, inaugurating the public meeting  organised to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Jamaat Federation in Kollam.

For some time now, certain groups  have been trying to portray a bad image on Kerala to rest of the country. To do this, they indulge in the fascist strategy of repeating lies over and over to make it sound like truth.

What Sangh Parivar looks to accomplish is incite  communal violence to polarise the  society and expand their political base in this manner. If events since 2014  are examined, one could see the steady race  toward Uniform Civil Code and  Hindu Rashtra thereafter.  The atmosphere in the country is now such that Christians and Muslim are unable to preserve their identity.

The latest example of this is Manipur where riots refuses to be quelled even now. Sangh Parivar  has always  been fearful of history.  It is only natural for them to be anxious about the country’s history, given  how they had snitched on India’s  freedom movement. They fear the pluralism of Indian history. The Father of Nation and first Prime Minister  are moved from the textbooks.

Now look, the first Education Minister Maulana Abdul Kalam Azad has also shoved away. NCERT has decided to remove lessons on Mughal Empire as well. Those who think history can be made to disappear by removing them from texts are in illusionary world, said CM. All things feared by the Sangh Parivar shall continue to remain in the textbooks of Kerala, said CM.
