The Hidden agenda of the RSS in saffronising the cultural institutions is clearly visible in the first one year of Modi regime , The recent appointments to head various institutions of higher order points to that direction , where RSS wants to manipulate history , tweaking in with changes in the academic curriculum of educational text books , where they clearly want to rewrite history in a manner to have perceived changes how young students in schools could be influenced by changing facts which are distorted , half baked & manipulative which suits their larger agenda to safforinise the historical events for larger and long term political interest.
If we clearly observe HRD ministry & culture are the two key portfolios in which RSS has a direct control on the affairs, The selection of less known Mrs Smriti Irani as HRD minister itself points to that direction, Human Resource development is very important portfolio especially in a country like ours which is divided in to two departments the department of school education & literacy and the department of higher education , which deals with university education, technical education, Scholarship etc. It is quite well known fact that RSS ideologues are targeting this ministry ever since NDA came to power under the leadership of Vajpayee& Advani. Tomorrow if your kids happens to study a new syllabus formulated by the team in NCERT where historical facts gets changed with new curriculum , you need not get surprised because this is a carefully decided agenda which RSS was foreseeing it for a long time. My point of contention is very clear you allow the new young minds to explore things and understand the facts rather than making them to teach & learn the history of India which is not backed by proven facts but fuelled by imaginative thoughts which are completely against the democracy, such distorted facts only leads to cultivate animosity against their fellow beings of different religion.
Take for instance the resignation of Mr pravin Sinclair director of NCERT much before his tenure comes to an end , The anointment of Mr Sudasan rao as chairman of Indian council of historical research , which was earlier comprised of eminent historians like Ms Romila Thapper and many more well known historians .The appointment of Mr Gajendra chauhan as director of FTII a premier institute is again an action which clearly shows to appointment & place individuals who praises Modi and Hindutava agenda , the ouster of Mr Amatiya sen from chancellor of Nalanda university is yet another shocking incident which clearly follows the trend . The high level of meddling and interference in the appointment of such key posts clearly over shadows the role this institutions supposed to play in this country. Institutions which fosters learning & creativity needs to be allowed to function independently irrespective of the political ideology .
