This refers to the order promulgated by the Madhya Pradesh government mandating students of all state-run schools to answer their roll calls with ‘Jai Hind’. This, the order states, is to instill patriotism among the students. The order, to say the least, is dictatorial and autocratic and is a direct insult to the patriotic people of the country. How can anybody instill patriotism on another by force? Are those, who impose such rules, patriotic in the first place? If so, let them exhibit by remaining straightforward, not indulging in corruption, providing people-friendly rule, creating an atmosphere of amity and friendship. Everyone in the country is a patriotic; may be one does not express his/her patriotism outwardly. One does not have to definitely wear patriotism on his sleeve to prove his patriotic credentials.
