Ever since the UPA government filled up the Marksist history in NCERT books in 2005, the same has been served to the youth of the country. Now it seems that the time has come for change and the Modi government is ready for change in these books. According to the report, the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Education on Wednesday discussed the revision of the current National Educational Research and Training Council history textbooks in schools. During the debate on the need for a change in curriculum, former directors of JS Rajput and representatives of the Cross supported Indian Board of Education (BSM) were also involved. On Wednesday, the panel listened to ex-NCERT Director JS Rajput and Professor Shankar Sharan at NCERT as well as representatives from the Board of Education of India and Education Culture Trust.
According to the report, the Director of NCERT, Chairman of CBSE and Secretary of School Education were also present in the meeting. The panel mainly distorted facts about the country’s national heroes and the removal of the factual Wah Wahi of the Islamic sultans, giving place to the personalities of ancient to modern times of Indian history and the great women in Indian history. The need to highlight the role of. Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, the chairman of this Parliamentary Standing Committee on Education, and senior BJP leader Vinay Sahasrabuddhe told the media that “It has been two decades in the Parliamentary Committee discussing textbook reforms.
We thought that textbook reforms should also be considered at a time when the new National Education Policy is going to be implemented and new syllabus is being written. History of textbooks such as Sanskrit, Pali, Prakrit and their international spread and influence, from the sacrifice of various sectors of Indian society to the preservation of cultural values, and emphasizing India and its cultural boundaries should be written.
He said that the publishing agency should be able to provide evidence and proof of the text. He also added that colonial myths and their reality, such as the Aryan invasion theory, now dismissed with scientific evidence, should also be discussed in the books. Explain that from 1999 to 2004, Dr. Rajput School was the director of Zee Medar Committee to outline the National Curriculum for drafting textbooks. During his tenure, he began a process of controversial textbook revisions that Congress later changed back to its tenure and filled it with Marksist history.
Reportedly both JS Rajput and Saran argued that there was a need to balance the space given to the reign of Hindu kings as compared to the Mughal era. He argued that Indian history was written incorrectly. They claimed that their role as invaders of the Mughal era had also been removed. Let us tell you that a few days ago it was revealed from a Kranjadh that claims were made in the 12th book of history without any basis. Evidence was sought in Kranjadh for the claim that grants were issued by the Mughal emperors to repair temples destroyed during the war during the reigns of Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb. But there was no evidence of any kind nearby. It is currently in the process of revising the textbooks and is expected to complete the process by 2024.
The curriculum framework for school education is being revisited after 15 years. The Ministry has directed the National Council of Education Research and Training that while redesigning textbooks, it should be ensured that they contain nothing but original material. Now the Modi government should remove all the distorted histories from the students of India and tell them about the history of the country and should complete this task as soon as possible. This is the opportunity to correct the losses incurred in the year 2005.
The youth and children of India should be given an opportunity to read about the cultural roots of the country. By politicizing studies in this way, removing present and future generations from their own heritage can lead to their downfall. The Vajpayee government had taken a big step in the right direction, and now the Modi government will have to do this work in its care to save the future of India.
