The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Tuesday said that there is a need for
“radical transformation” in the education system from curriculum to teacher’s training. In his address at the Sangh’s Nagpur headquarters, Bhagwat said, “We need an education system which gives comprehensive knowledge and pride about our language (Swa Bhasha), our attire (Swa Bhoosha), our culture (Swa Sanskriti) and our ancestors.
He added, “We feel the need for a radical transformation from curriculum to teachers training. This cannot be achieved through mere structural changes," Bhagwat said at an RSS event here. “A high responsibility of imparting ‘samskars’ rests in the family. It is a matter of great concern that women feel unsafe today. The sanctity and decency of our culture is to be instilled in the men approach towards women,” Bhagwat said during a Vijaya Dashami speech.
The RSS chief said that media has a major role in awakening the society and creating a conducive social atmosphere. “If the media joins in creating a constructive atmosphere, this endeavour will gain momentum,” he said.
Bhagwat said lynching is not based on Indian ethos and the term should not be imposed on Indians. He instead branded lynching as incidents of “social violence”, Bhagwat said the term – lynching – has been coined to defame our country and create fear among some communities. Lynching is alien to Bharat (India) and actually has its references in Bible.
“The vision and proclamation of the Sangh regarding the identity of the nation, social identity of all of
us, and the identity of the country’s nature, are clear, well- thought-of and firm that Bharat is Hindustan,
Hindu Rashtra,” he said.
