'Centre used NEP 2020 as weapon to communalise': Rahul Gandhi in Tamil Nadu

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi slammed Centre over the National Education Policy 2020. Rahul said that the Centre introduced NEP 2020 without consulting teachers and students. He added that NEP is used as a weapon to communalise and push a particular ideology. The Congress leader also spoke on how to remove religion from political discourse among youth. He was interacting with professors at St Xavier's College in Tamil Nadu's Tirunelveli. “An education system is for our students and it is run by our teachers. Any education policy has to come from a conversation with students and professors. There is too much power being centralised in one institution (in the NEP). This centralisation of power is going to damage the education system. The positive side is that it is reasonably flexible on many counts. But is a weapon to communalise, to push a particular ideology into Indian society,” he said. Rahul added, “You don't want to necessarily remove religion from the political discourse. As long as ideas are competing without hatred and anger, there is no problem. Problem is when you say that you can't speak because you're from a certain religion. Govt says they represent Hinduism but ideas they espouse have nothing to do with it.”

Situated along the banks of Rapti River in Uttar Pradesh, Gorakhpur city is famous as a religious centre. Home to Buddhists, Hindu, Jain and Sikh Saints, the city is named after a medieval saint, Gorakshanath or Gorakhnath in whose honour a famous temple is also built. Standing on the 52 acres of the land, the most attractive feature of this temple is the garbh griha where white marble statue of sage Gorakhnath performing yogic meditation is enshrined. Though a Hindu religious site, this temple is providing livelihood to hundreds of Muslim families who have been running their shops inside its premises for years, making it an epitome of communal harmony. Every year, the temple hosts the famous Khichdi Parv or Makar Sankranti fair which lasts for about a month. A number of food stalls and shops are set up around the temple at this time. Be it Hindus, Muslims or any other community people, everyone becomes a part of the fair. They mingle with each other, shop together and pray together, perfectly packaging a Mini India at one place. There are numerous religious sites in India belonging to various faiths but the one thing that connects them all is the message of love and brotherhood that they spread. Gorakhnath temple is also one among them which has been for years representing the country's 'Unity in Diversity'.
