Members of the United Minorities Front staged a protest here on Saturday against the government for directing school libraries to buy Bharatiyara Habba Haridinagalu (Festivals of Indians), a 640-page book.
The book written by Sri Sri Rangapriya, a Sanskrit scholar and head of Asthangayoga Vijnana Mandiram here, makes a mention of only Hindu festivals and does not mention Ramzan, Christmas, Good Friday and Buddha Poornima. The Department of State Education Research and Training has directed government primary and high schools to buy at least one copy of the book for their libraries.
Condemning the move, Hanuman C. of the United Minorities Front, said: “This is saffronisation of education. The book gives an impression that no other community exists.”
Dalit Sangharsh Samiti secretary Mavalli Shankar said: “India is a multi-religious nation and the government should not try to scuttle this reality”. He added that the government is not following the Indian Constitution.
Convener of the Dalit Christian Federation Manohar Chandra Prasad said that this was an attempt to communalise children’s mind, and urged the State government to withdraw the direction given to school libraries to buy the book.http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-national/tp-karnataka/article3668694.ece
