New Delhi: The ‘ecosystem of Islamists, evangelists, cultural Marxists and global tech giants Google, Facebook and Twitter poses a significant challenge to the nation and breaking this ecosystem is key to India’s rise as the world power, said RSS Sah-Sarkaryavah Shri Arun Kumar. He spoke at Gyanotsav, a three-day mega event organised by Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas, in New Delhi on November 17. Shri Arun Kumar said these four forces collaborated to “prevent the rejuvenation of nationalist thought, which they considered a threat as the world rapidly embraced Indian spiritualism and philosophy”.
“There is an ecosystem of Islamists, evangelists, global capitalists and cultural Marxists. They are all together. They have no grassroots presence in India, but their strength lies in academics, media, and global tech giant support. These forces consider Indian nationalist thought a threat for the world and therefore tag us sometimes as majoritarian, sometimes anti-minority, and sometimes anti-plural. They try to confuse us. We have to conquer them to succeed,” said Shri Arun Kumar.
Listing the three challenges for implementing the National Education Policy, he said, “The first is the ecosystem in academics of references and narratives, which has become a popular discourse. Nearly 80 per cent of the world’s manuscripts are in India but we cannot read them because we don’t have language experts. Some Marxist historians’ selective references are considered as references which is not the case.” Shri Arun Kumar called for the NEP to promote knowledge of traditional Indian languages so they could interpret the manuscripts thoroughly. “The collaboration of academics, media and global tech giants as the second ecosystem the country must break,” he added.
“Today Mahishasur Jayanti is celebrated in JNU but its impact is felt in Bastar because of social media. Twitter, Facebook, Google promote people who are against our thought and aligned to their agendas. Discourses that once happened in selective places have become popular discourses,” he further noted. Shri Arun Kumar said stakeholders must conquer the “ecosystem of Islamists, evangelists, global capitalists and cultural Marxists who are ranged against the Indian thought and have their strength in academics and in world institutions.” (With inputs from agencies)
