New Delhi: Student group Campus Front of India on Monday demanded removal of chapters on RSS leaders from the MBBS course introduced by the Madhya Pradesh government from this academic year. CFI said the BJP-led state government’s move to include RSS leaders’ profiles is highly condemnable.
The move to include profiles of RSS founder KB Hedgewar and ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyaya in the ethics part of the foundation course for the first year MBBS students in Madhya Pradesh has come for sharp criticism from all quarters.
Reacting on this , CFI said “neither Hedgewar and Deen Dayal Upadhyaya nor their organisation RSS had contributed in any way to social development. Rather, they founded RSS, spouting ideology of hatred and extermination in India.
‘Brahminical supremacy and Hindutva dogma proposed by them is causing heightened intolerance towards minority communities. Placing these people along with Babasaheb Ambedkar and other reformers is nothing but defaming their legacy’, the statement pointed out
The students’ body said doctors are taught to treat their patients equally regardless of their religion, caste and class. But, glorifying the proponents of communal politics and bigotry help only to demean the medical ethics and so the future doctors.
It demanded that the chapters of Deen Dayal Upadhyaya and KB Hedgewar have to be removed from the syllabus.
