Bengaluru: Karnataka Education Minister BC Nagesh reiterated his firm resolve to implement the new syllabus textbook for students of Classes 1 to 10 in the state.

Karnataka Education Minister B.C. Nagesh on Saturday said: “We will tell history of Indian victories not defeats to students. Everyone wrote about defeats throughout the history, none wrote about victories.”

He further said: “We are all set to tell historical victories of India.”

After the inauguration of “Amruta Bharatige Kannadada Aarati” programme organised by Kannada and Culture Department, he said, India had its own system before the invasion of foreigners. “The volume of injustice done by British and Muslim rulers had not been done by anyone,” he said.

Mughals have destroyed temples, culture of the land and snatched away our self-respect, he said.

“Our people did not take sword to conquer any foreign land. They went with knowledge. British had only the intention to destroy Gurukulas,” he said.

Nagesh said the British did not conquer this land with their intelligence and valour. “But, they came to power by divide and rule policy, through illegal and immoral ways”.

“But, our freedom fighters turned revolutionaries have challenged the British empire and took away their peace of mind,” he said, adding: “Children must be taught that the freedom was achieved through the sacrifice and martyrdom of crores of people.”
