Bangalore: Student organisations, Muslim organizations and activists on Tuesday protested against the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) organizing training camps for students of government boarding schools in Karnataka, alleging the ruling BJP government allows it.
“The ruling BJP in Karnataka is allowing the running of RSS camps at the Morarji Desai residential educational institutes, which should be promptly stopped,” said Vasudeva Reddy, State Secretary of the Student Federation of India (SFI). ). “The SFI would start a statewide movement if the RSS organization of the camps were not stopped, and the camp is currently taking place in the bidar of northern Karnataka and the Mulbagal taluk of Kolar.” he said.
“Students can participate in camps run by the RSS, a so-called communal force. Kota Srinivas Poojari, the Minister of Social Development, has personally suggested organizing camps for students,” Vasudeva Reddy said.
“It is a component of the BJP’s saffronization of education. The BJP proposes the idea that communitarianism is a continuation of the hijab and concerns the reform of school curricula. The BJP, which is in power, tries to transfer control of educational institutions to the RSS. We denounce it,” he said.
“These RSS camps should be dismantled immediately. Weapons are used and physical training is carried out in these camps. RSS engages in anti-social behavior. The kind of influence these camps would have on impressionable minds is cause for concern” , said Vasudeva Reddy. According to a notification from the state government, permission has been granted to host the Prashikshan Shivir (boot camps), which are organized to teach young men Yogasana, personality development and nationalism.
The Minister of Social Welfare Development gave his approval.
Prerana Pratisthan was granted permission to hold a week-long program at the Kolar district residential hostel. A similar camp has also been authorized by the government through the Akshaya Seva Pratishthana of Uttara Kannada district. According to sources, another camp is planned in northern Karnataka.
