Indian Constitution destroying Hinduism: M Nageswara Rao IPS(R)

By: M. Nageswara Rao IPS (Retd) Former I/C Director, CBI

As informed by Sri Rahul Eshwar during a Twitter Spaces discussion, in India on an average a Christian and Muslim child by the time he/she turns 18 years gets on about 1000 (one thousand) hours of formal religious education about his/her religion even if he/she studies in a normal school. As a result, he/she has fairly good knowledge about his/her religion and religious texts.

Whereas a Hindu child gets NO formal religious education whatsoever and he/she is completely ignorant about his/her religion namely Hinduism and religious/civilisational knowledge/texts.

As a result, Hindus are getting deracinated and uprooted from their religion, traditions and culture. Rigveda is the world's oldest known text and Mahabharata is the world's longest poem ever written.

Our literary heritage is so vast even after the burning down of lakhs of manuscripts by Islamic invaders and looting by British rulers and Christian missionaries.

Any country and civilization would be extremely proud to teach such extraordinary heritage in their formal education to children. But we Indians especially Hindus are taught and made to feel ashamed of it. 

This is because articles 28, 29 & 30 of the Constitution deny Educational & Cultural Rights to Hindus on par with those of so-called minorities like Muslims & Christians.

Constitution of India: Article 28: Freedom as to attendance at religious instruction or religious worship in certain educational institutions.
Constitution of India: Article 29: Protection of interests of minorities.
Constitution of India : Article 30: Right of minorities to establish and administer educational institutions

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it.

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises. But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to the crude prime-time spectacle.

My digital news .in  has very few young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here Donate.
