'Don’t ignore role of Indian scientists during freedom struggle'

Thiruvananthapuram, Nov 7 (UNI) The country must thoroughly acknowledge the role of scientists who worked against all odds during the two centuries of British rule that focused on de-nationalising India more than colonizing it, Jayant Sahasrabudhe, National Organizing Secretary of RSS sponsored "Vijnana Bharati," said on Sunday.
"History has largely neglected the contributions of scientists towards the freedom struggle since the 1757 Battle of Plassey that gave the British East India Company a decisive victory in the subcontinent till 1947 when the country earned Independence", he said, while delivering the ‘Sir CV Raman lecture’ at the Rajiv Gandhi Centre for Biotechnology (RGCB) in the city.
“As much as seekers of knowledge and truth, those scientists strived to regain the identity of India from the hands of the invaders,” Sahasrabudhe noted in his speech on 'Freedom Struggle and Science' organized on the occasion of the 133rd birthday of legendary physicist Dr C.V. Raman. “We stand on their shoulders in our continuing efforts towards progress.”
