Revamping Education

This step comes as an important milestone as the government is planning to introduce fundamental changes in education system. For long this demand was made that the UP’s History syllabus must be holistic. And we could see that until now how much the syllabus was affected by Marxist ideology. The glorification of Mughals and undermining of the Indic rulers was practice going on for decades.

Glorification Of Tyrant Mughals

Even after independence of the country, the government was following the Macaulay’s directions. This had a great pyscho-social impact on the people of India. People believed that before and after Mughals Bharat never existed in a glorious form. This was a blatant play with the facts and pride of India. The Mughal architecture was given a high vantage point right from the primary school to the university level. Other significant rulers were merely confined to the limits of regional-lingual boundaries. But, the actual truth is completely different which was deliberately hid from the public.

The great temples of India were never shown as the wonder that has been there in their sculpture, engineering and aesthetics. Rather Taj Mahal and Mughal gardens were only the epitome of beauty and finesse. This sense of partiality viciously percolated in the whole education system. Actually, which persists till date. But the rise of the Indic Revolution and awakening of the society has made it possible to bring facts in the light.
