RSS founder Hedgewar’s speech in Karnataka board textbook likely to stir controversy

Keshav Baliram Hedgewar

BENGALURU : The decision of the Karnataka Education Department to include Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) founder Keshav Baliram Hedgewar’s speech as a lesson for the Class 10 students is likely to create a controversy in the state.

The lesson has been included in the syllabus as the first language Kannada textbook prescribed for the SSLC (Class 10) students for the academic year 2022-23.


The decision has been taken following the recommendation by the Textbook Revision Committee headed by writer Rohit Chakratheertha. He is regarded as a right winger by the progressive thinkers and opposition parties in Karnataka.

The revision committee had earlier come into eye of storm after the statement by Rohit Chakratheertha that “glorification of Muslim King of Mysuru Tipu Sultan will be taken off from the syllabus”.

Sources confirmed that the lesson is titled: “Who should be your real role model?” and it is kept as the 5th chapter in the prose section. However, the lessons from the authors, who are staunch critics of the BJP and RSS have been dropped, they say.

The lessons written by well-known journalist, sworn critic of BJP Late P. Lankesh and leftist thinker G. Ramakrishna have been dropped. Vedic scholar, the Late Bannanje Govindacharya ‘Sukanashana Upasana’ and author, noted critic Shatavadhani R. Ganesh’s ‘Shrestha Bharateeya Chintanegalu’ have been included, according to sources.

The Textbook Revision Committee has maintained that it had selected the lesson on Hedgewar not on the basis of ideology. Education Minister B.C. Nagesh had defended the recommendations of the committee. — IANS


  1. Morality of this story :- they(Brahmins) started implementing their ideology almost 100 years back and now they are getting its fruits and this shows how strongly they committed towards strategy .. Unfortunately, we Muslims all over the world even today do not know what is an ideology or how to committed towards strategy. Palestine is the one best example to describe today’s Muslims ..

    • Muslims are getting the test of of their own medicine. BJP-RSS is modern day conquerer and they have studied your Quran properly, they are implementing the same of your Islamic war strategy like Ghazi,Jihad,Jizya,Al Taqqaiya,Kafir,Mushriq,Darul harb,Darul Islam,Ghazwa E Hind,Dhimmi(Zimmi) etc on Muslims to wipe you out. This is all your Islamic concepts now getting implemented on you lol. Do you still like Islam? How are you feeling now when it’s getting applied on Muslims? Offcourse you are rattled. Muslim’s Sharia law got reversed and applied on muslims to turn them into ‘Zimmi’ 🤣🤣

      • “intellectual brahmanical scholar” aka Hindu gutter rat,

        You can’t even type properly with your broken English…chutiya sadak chap goo bhakt calling himself an intellectual scholar. Another whatsapp sanghi bhangi drop out who was born on railway ki patri. Backward superstitious smelly Hindu rapist scum think you can eliminate Muslims? Keep dreaming…you’ll be made dhimmis yet fulfilling the coming prophecies with your barbaric behavior. It’s smelly Hindu rats who will be taught lessons….remember that Hindus cannot live in peace with anyone, including their own.
        That’s why you inbred rats sell your kidneys to get work visas to go clean toilets in Muslim countries…begging even for oxygen when you dirty hindus where dying like dogs thanks to Covid. And now we’re getting you kicked out for permanent ghar wapsi back to you bhangi mata.
        Hinduism is a cancer, we’re the chemotherapy.
