One culture, one nation of the National Education Policy, 2019 is only a plot of the BJP to introduce Presidential form of Government in India!
Let us defeat this cultural invasion
“The imagination about the Hindu Rashtra we are having is not merely a bundle of political and economical rights. The essence of the philosophy of Hindu Rashtra is its Sanskrit culture. Sanskrit is the source and life breath of our ancient, sovereign culture.” – M.S.Golwalkar, President, RSS (from the book Gnana Gangai – Pages33-34)
“In order to seek a solution for the problem of our National language, till Sanskrit language captures that status of National Language, we have to give that status to Hindi. Even in Hindi language, we should think about what type of Hindi we have to follow. Naturally we would like to have the type of Hindi language which had its roots of origin in Sanskrit, like all other Bharathiya languages.”
M.S.Golwalkar, President, RSS (from the book Gnana Gangai – Pages 171)
National Education Policy, 2019 introduced in a hurry
As soon as the BJP Government headed by Modi and guided by the RSS have taken the reigns of the Central Government and even before the indelible ink has gone dry, the Government is introducing a three language formula for the imposition of Hindi -Sanskrit, in the guise of the New National Educational Policy, which the Government is trying to introduce in a hurried manner.
The BJP Government has started in full force to undertake a cultural invasion, giving legal and working form for the policy of Golwalkar quoted above.
Foundation is being laid for the Presidential form of Government
It is envisaged in the new education policy proposed, to make our country, which is multi racial, multi religious, multi cultural and multi linguistic, into a country of single language, single religion, single culture, single system of education and a single election and thus finally to introduce a Presidential form of Government, giving up the present democratic system of Government.
The subject of Education was in the State List of the Constitution of India before 1976 and it was taken to the Concurrent List in 1976. Utilising this opportunity, the Government of India is now trying to encroach upon the rights of the states through ‘democratic method’
Hindi is only a language out of the 22 languages listed in the VIII Schedule of the Constitution of India and another language in the list is Sanskrit. The heading given to it is only the list of Indian languages. The founders of the Constitution of India have not given national status for any language.
Not Urudu mixed Hindi language proposed by Gandhi.
When official language was mentioned in the Constitution of India, it was decided and recorded that Hindi with Devanagiri script will be the official language of the country.
Though the Tamil language is a classical language, Sanskrit language was given importance and called divine language (Devabasha) by Brahmins, as Tamil was treated as inferior language (neech basha) by them.
The Hindi now introduced as official language is not the Urudu mixed Hindi advocated by Gandhi. The Brahmins made sure that the Urudu mixed Hindi has not entered into corridors of administration.
Is Hindi a majority spoken language?
As per the Draft New National Education Policy, 2019 out of the total population of India (136 crores), 62.83 crores of people are in the Hindi group states. Even then the number of people registered Hindi as their mother tongue is only 32.22 crores.
If we take the state of Bihar, we can see that though it is called a state where people are speaking Hindi, the mother tongue of one third of people of Bihar is Bojpuri and the mother tongue of one fifth of people is Magahi.
How many people are speaking Sanskrit?
It is said that since the number of people speaking English is only 15 cores, the Hindi language spoken by majority of the people is made the official language.
Conveniently forgetting and hiding the fact that India is a Union of non-Hindi speaking states also, they are advancing unreasonable arguments in favour of Hindi and Sanskrit. The number of people having Sanskrit as mother tongue is only 24,821 out of the total population of 136 crores.
Why this special status and attention to a language spoken by a miniscule population? Nothing but to implement RSS policy.
Are there chances and opportunities to teach the other languages that find place in VIII schedule of the Constitution? Are there chances and opportunities for Tamil language in the programmes of All India Radio and Doordharshan?
The question posed by the Dravidian Movement
Though Tamil language was recognised as official language in Singapore, Malaysia,Ceylon and Mauritius s, due place was not given to the Tamil language in its own soil.
Only the Dravidian Movement is raising this question all along and fighting for it.
Nobody can deny that language is not only an instrument to write, to speak or to communicate, but also a fountain head of civilization and culture.
Let us defeat the cultural invasion
It is a fact that if the proponents of Hindi and Sanskrit decide to touch the bee-hive, definitely they will suffer with bee stings.
Let us jointly defeat this cultural invasion, in whichever form it tries to enter!
Let the insignificants understand clearly that this is the soil of Periyar and Dravidam!
President Dravidar Khazhagam,
