PM’s ideaology: “India’s history through the prism of the Hindu right wing”

ModiModi’s educational reform could be used to promote an ideology that sees “India’s history through the prism of the Hindu right wing”, suggested an influential US newspaper

Modi “has promised India’s youth a bright future”, the New York Times wrote in an editorial published today.

The editorial titled: “False Teachings for India’s Students”, asked “whether educational reform will be used not just to create an educated citizenry and trained work force but also to promote a particular ideology”.

During the May election campaign, Modi had “promised to bring the ‘Gujarat model’ to national governance,” that many voters understood “to mean a commitment to a more dynamic economy,” it said.

“But the Gujarat model has a less attractive side to it: a requirement that the state’s curriculum include several textbooks written by Dinanath Batra, a scholar dedicated to recasting India’s history through the prism of the Hindu right wing,” the Times wrote.
