Editorial comments

  • The commendable decision of the BJP Government in Gujarat ! Hindus feel that such a decision should be taken by BJP’s Government in other States, as well as by the Central Government ! Devout Hindus also feel that the syllabus should include Vedas, Upanishads and other scriptures as well.
  • Now it should not be a surprise if progressives, Congressmen, etc. shout that education is being saffronised.
