    Kerala: Golwalkar and Savarkar named in Kannur University syllabus, students burn copies in protest

    Thiruvananthapuram. Mention of VD Savarkar and MS Golwalkar in the undergraduate or postgraduate course at Kannur University in Kerala has caused a stir. The Kerala Students Union, a student wing of the Congress, staged a rally at the university on Thursday in protest and burnt copies of the syllabus. The agitating students complained that the ruling CPI (M) government was assisting in saffron education. At the same time, the Vice-Chancellor says, information about Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Baba Saheb Ambedkar has also been included in the syllabus.

    According to the Indian Express, the whole debate is about the MA, governance and the syllabus of politics. It included quotes from Savarkar’s ‘Hindutva: Who is Hindu’ and Golwalkar’s ‘Bunch of Thoughts’ and ‘Defining Us or Our Ethnicity’. In addition to these, Deendayal Upadhyay’s ‘Integral Humanism’ and Balraj Madhok’s ‘Indianization: What, Why and How’ are mentioned in the syllabus.

    The agitating students have complained that the Sangh family agenda is being implemented in the CPI (M) controlled university. Rizil Makuti, state vice-president of the Youth Congress, who was speaking at the protest, showed that RSS agents were controlling higher education in Kerala. “We will continue to protest against the teachings of the Pinarayi Vijayan government against saffron,” he said.

    Kannur University Vice-Chancellor Professor Gopinath Rabindra has denied the allegations of saffronisation. “We have included the works of Gandhiji, Nehru, Ambedkar and Tagore. And the syllabus also includes Savarkar and Golwalkar. Let students learn and understand the basics of all these ideologies. “What they (Savarkar and Golwalkar) said is part of current Indian politics. What’s wrong with learning it?”
