Com­pul­sory Read­ing for En­voys: RSS

The Economic Times - - Pure Politics -

New Delhi: A book which un­der­lines Hin­dutva as In­dia’s “char­ac­ter and na­tion­al­ism” should be made a com­pul­sory read­ing for the coun­try’s am­bas­sadors, a se­nior RSS func­tionary sug­gested on Wed­nes­day. The gov­ern­ment should make com­pul­sory read­ing of the book, ‘ Bharat Ko Samjhne Ki Sharten’ (Con­di­tions to Un­der­stand In­dia), so that the en­voys can in­form the world about In­dia from In­dia’s per­spec­tive, RSS joint gen­eral sec­re­tary Dat­ta­treya Hos­a­bale said. He termed the book writ­ten by Surya Kant Bali, con­sid­ered close to the RSS, a “holy book” about In­dia’s “ac­tual his­tory”. “Bali in the pref­ace of his book has clearly stated that Hin­dutva is In­dia’s char­ac­ter and na­tion­al­ism. He has de­scribed this in his book at length also. “I would like to make one suggestion. There are also con­di­tions to rep­re­sent In­dia. Am­bas­sadors from this coun­try go across the world. There­fore, this book should be trans­lated into English and read­ing of it made com­pul­sory for them,” he said while re­leas­ing the book’s re­vised edi­tion here. — PTI
