Prioritise Indian languages in schools and colleges: SSUN

By Malavikka

Indian languages should be given priority when it comes to medium of instruction in schools and colleges, recommends RSS-affiliated Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas (SSUN) to the Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry. In a recent meeting between SSUN leaders and HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar, array of requests for making additions to the new education policy were made by SSUN and acknowledged by HRD.

The highlight of the key points put forth by SSUN is that the syllabus in educational institutions must be Indianised and phrased with all due respect to our Indian culture; any innuendos to Indians, their culture and eminent personalities and wrong explanations about our history must be duly removed and edited at all levels; all researches done must be created to meet the national requirements and projects that do not comply to it should not be given UGC grant; at the school level, Indian languages should be given main preference without substituting foreign languages.

SSUN asks HRD to Indianize language in education


SSUN has recommended the eventual removal of English language as a medium of instruction in schools and colleges and that severe action must be taken against institutions that penalise students who speak in mother tongue. Also, immediate action must be taken to introduce national languages into English medium institutions like IIT, IIM and NIT, it added.

In acknowledgement to this, an official mail from the HRD was sent to the SSUN stating that these ideas will be discussed during the formulation of the new education policy. SSUN founder and secretary Atul Kothari was also confident after the meeting that all their suggestions will be taken into consideration and incorporated. He was quoted saying that Javadekar appreciated many of their ideas.

Bharatiya Janata Party , Akhil Bharatiya Karyakarini and Rashtriya Swayam Sevak are some of the parties that are working towards the welfare of Indian languages and culture.
