India’s first education minister Maulana Abul Kalam Azad had no regards for India – UP BJP minister Anand Swarup Shukla

The patriotic citizens of this country expect Shukla, as a member of the party in power, take initiative to lawfully end the glorification of Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. They should take steps to stop celebrating Abul Kalam’s birthday as National Education Day, to rescind the Bharat Ratna awarded to him, and to expose his true colours to the next generation.

Ballia (Uttar Pradesh) – Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, India’s first Education Minister, did not have love for India or Indianness, claimed Uttar Pradesh Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Anand Swaroop Shukla while addressing a function at Jannayak Chandrasekhar Vidyapeeth

Shukla said that,

  1. India’s education system deteriorated because of Azad. Even after Maulana Azad, there were many people who spoiled the education system of the country. This includes People like MC Chagla, Nurul Hasan and Humayun Kabir.
  2. People belonging to that part of India which became Pakistan did not want It to become Pakistan, and the people from that part of India which was demanding for Pakistan did not go there.
  3. Historians did not reflect upon the injustice and atrocities of Aurangzeb in history books, likewise Akbar was ‘Akbar the Great’, but historians always called those who pledged for ‘Akhand Bharat’ (undivided India), religious fanatics.
