أثارت الخطوات التي تَنتهجها الحكومة الهندية لتشكيل المناهج الدراسية وَفق المنظومة الفكرية الهندوسية مخاوف المسلمين وغيرهم، وذلك بعد صدور كتاب "الهند المجيدة" في ظل حكومة حزب "بهراتيه جنتا" الهندوسي، والمقرر تدريسه لطلاب جوجات بالمرحلة الابتدائية.
ويراه المتخصصون يحمل رسالة فكر "ناريندرا مودي" رئيس الوزراء الهندوسي، التي تهدف لصبغ كل مظاهر المجتمع بالهندوسية، حتى العلوم والتاريخ وغيرها من العناصر الحضارية، ونسبة الإنجازات التاريخية والمعاصرة للهنود، وتجاهل أدوار الطوائف غير الهندوسية في حضارة "الهند".
وهو ما دفَع رموز العمل الإسلامي للمطالبة بذكر دور المسلمين وغيرهم، والإشارة للقرآن والإسلام، دون الاقتصار على الهندوسية وهيمنتها على المناهج الدراسية؛ المصدر: شبكة الألوكة.

India set to Saffronize School Curriculum
These are not excerpts from any fiction book, but some ‘pearls of wisdom’ picked up from a school text book called “Tejomay Bharat” (‘Glorious India’ in Hindi) which has recently been introduced in government schools in the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-run state of Gujarat.
“Indian students have made a mark in the world due to the excellent education system of this country which is secular, progressive and scientific,” Dr Sabbir Husain, a Muslim medical doctor from Aligarh in north India, told OnIslam.net.
Dr Husain added that by pushing through the Hindu agenda the “Hindu brigade” is doing a great disservice to the Hindu as well as the non-Muslim communities.
“Just when we are about to realize our dream of becoming a superpower, this saffron gang is hell-bent on pushing us back to the Stone Age,” Dr Husain, a retired government medical officer, added.
Published by Gujarat State School Textbook Board (GSSTB) 125-page Tejomay Bharat is in fact part of a series of nine new books which were all approved for use in Gujarat’s 42,000 elementary and secondary schools earlier this year when Narendra Modi was the chief minister of the state.
Each of the books which are being used in the state’s schools since June, carries a customized message from Modi, as the chief minister of the state, advising the children study diligently.
According to the GSSTB, the books are aimed to teach the children “facts” about history, science, geography, religion and other “basics” from a new perspective.
“Now, Indian students from all religious communities, who go to the west for higher study will surely be ridiculed if they tell their teachers that ancient Indian Hindu sages had performed human cloning by putting flesh in a pot of butter!” Dr Husain added.
Written by Hindu educationist Dina Nath Batra who is a member of the national executive of Vidya Bharti, the educational wing of the Hindu nationalist Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) group, the books will help “Indianize” the school curriculum of the state, a GSSTB statement said.
Tejomay Bharat will help the students know India better, the book’s content advisor Harshad Shah said to Indian Express.
“Tejomay Bharat gives an insight to students about our rich culture, heritage, spiritualism and patriotism. The language has been kept simple, which is apt for students. These are to be given free of cost to all schools,” Shah, who was Gujarat chairman of Vidya Bharti till 2006 and is now the vice-chancellor of Children’s University in Gandhinagar, told the Indian newspaper.
84-year-old former teacher Batra, who wrote the books originally in Hindi, told Indian Express that his books seek to redefine history, science, geography and redraw the map of India.
“The GSSTB had seen and read our books. They liked them and said, they wanted to translate them into Gujarati and introduce them in schools,” he said.
Contents of many of the other eight text books by Batra too would shock or outrage many around the world.
