HJS warns of agitation on alleged insult of Tilak in Std VIII book in Rajasthan

HJS warns of agitation on alleged insult of Tilak in Std VIII book in Rajasthan

Pune, May 12 (UNI) Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) on Saturday lodged the strongest protest against the reference book for VIII Standard on the subject Social Science for English medium in Rajasthan schools, in which Lokmanya Tilak has allegedly been referred as 'Father of Terrorism'.

In a statement, HJS National Spokesperson Ramesh Shinde,' We will never tolerate the insult of Lokmanya Tilak who sacrificed everything for the freedom of India. The Rajasthan Government should take serious cognisance of the matter and delete the objectionable reference in the book immediately.'

Such a reference was not caused due to oversight, but the act was carried out purposefully to insult a national hero, Lokmanya Tilak, he claimed and demanded stringent action against the writers of the reference, the printer and publisher of the book and government officers concerned.

The book should be withdrawn immediately and public apology should be tendered by the concerned, Mr Shine demanded and said if the demand was not met, Hindu Janajagruti Samiti would launch nation-wide agitation.

HJS has complained to Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje Scindia in order to let her know the seriousness of the issue. Additionally, HJS has submitted a memorandum in this regard in Jodhpur and Jaipur Collector Offices. HJS also had personal meet with Pune's

Mayor Mukta Tilak who is one of the descendants of Lokmanya Tilak and submitted a memorandum today.

Ms Tilak had said had that she had sent a letter to Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje in the context and asked to remove the objectionable reference from the textbook immediately.

Mr Shinde said even earlier, the textbooks of the Central Government for ICSE had purposefully referred great revolutionaries such as Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Lala Lajpatrai, Bipin Chandra Pal, Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, Rajguru and few others as terrorists.

'When this issue was opposed, the objectionable part was deleted. Now, to term Tilak again as a terrorist is a sinister conspiracy to taint the national heroes by insulting them,' he alleged.

'During pre-Independence days, Lokmanya Tilak inspired the public to participate in freedom struggle by his fiery speeches. Therefore, the people took a leading part in freedom struggle. As a result, the British started calling Tilak as 'Father of Indian Unrest'. To call Tilak as 'Father of Terrorism' is a treacherous act,' he said.
