A VIEW POINT ON "BANNED IIT-MADRAS STUDENT GROUP RESPONDS TO CHARGES OF SPREADING HATRED AGAINST MODI GOVERNMENT"

VIEW POINT ON "BANNED IIT-MADRAS STUDENT GROUP RESPONDS TO CHARGES OF SPREADING HATRED AGAINST MODI GOVERNMENT"

A controversy has arisen in IIT-Madras as it has banned Ambedkar Periyar Student Circle, a discussion forum for students to promote the ideology and writings of BR Ambedkar and Periyar EV Ramasamy, after the ministry of human resource development made an inquiry regarding an anonymous complaint it had received on the activities of the Dalit rights group on the IIT campus.

Prisca Mathew, under-secretary to the government of India in the MHRD, wrote to the director, IIT Madras on May 15, 2015 on "distribution of controversial posters and pamphlets in the campus of IIT-Madras and creating hatred atmosphere (sic) among the students by one of the student groups namely Ambedkar-Periyar". http://scroll.in/article/730961/banned-iit-madras-students-group-responds-to-charges-of-spreading-hatred-against-modi-government.

VIEW POINT

Our opportunistic politicians will continue to exploit anything and everything to farther their personal interests. They have nothing to project in terms of contributing for the positive proactive development of the nation. Everyone is busy creating and maintaining their own islands of influence (VOTE BANK POLITICS). Country has lost the opportunity of establishing herself as a world power. There is no world class university, no world class manufacturing (I mean 100% Indian effort) etc. I know some people may react but we have hardly anything in 67 years where our leadership in any of the fields is recognized by the world. Who is responsible? I know we all are to blame ourselves but what now? To me it looks the AFFIRMATIVE action instead of appeasement policy must be the way of life. 

The nation needs most is a positive action in favour of good quality HUMAN life for all, irrespective of caste, religion, language, location and income. This nation belongs to all equally and no one should be allowed to exploit it. Caste based reservation is leading to polarization of the society. Caste based reservation only benefit a few affluent sections amongst the identified groups. This may help only the political parties in achieving their goals but at the EXPENSE of the nation. Remember this division or polarization in the society will only strengthen our enemies. Also remember the caste based reservation won’t neutralize the sins and crimes committed by our earlier generations. I sincerely request everyone who has suffered to pardon all those responsible and let there be an emergence of new homogeneous society with a firm belief in “Live and let live”. Let us come forward and ensure that this polarization is not passed over to the next generation. 

The cheap politics and any violence can be curbed if our politicians and Social Scientists are made to come for 1:1 TV debate on the subject such that entire nation is able to participate in the debate. GOI or some honest NGO can maintain one such channel on continuous basis for this purpose only.
