Don’t impose Sanskrit on students: Khurshid

Ajmer: Former minister of external affairs, Salman Khurshid, said that making Sanskrit compulsory in schools will not help students as it is something like imposing a single language on students. He said Sanskrit is a good language but making it compulsory means keeping the students away from other languages. Khurshid on Sunday was in Ajmer to inaugurate a school.

Talking to media he said that at present people in Government and outside are forcing to have different aspect of history.

“History is a matter of fact with analytical approach and, therefore, changing it means changing our past,” said Khurshid.

He added that having different perspective of history is a different thing and having history based on facts is different. “Even Marxists have different points of view about history but that does not make real history,” he said.

Education should have less interference of government and even the apex court made it clear. Khurshid said that let education institutes run according to their needs and schools can work better if government keeps itself away.

He said, “Rising India will not happen by rising of upper class but rising India in reality means middle and lower-middle classes of the country and, therefore, right education is the only tool through which India can rise. Education is a matter of specialists and when local people start giving perspective to different subjects it is of no use.”

Talking about the external affairs of NDA government, Khurshid said that from the time of Nehru, India was a non-aligned nation and, therefore, image of India was non-controversial and equal in all the countries.

“But now it looks like that India is totally dependent on America, though NDA government has not given a signal but it seems that India is ready to give army support to fight in Syria.
