University is not a place for ideological battle: Amit Shah

New Delhi: Universities should not be turned into wrestling grounds for ideological battle, says Home Minister Amit Shah. Addressing students at Delhi University on Thursday, Shah said universities should be a platform for exchanging views and not a place of ideological conflict.

“If a particular ideology causes controversy, it is not an ideology and certainly not an ideology of India. An ideology goes through thought and discussion. No one remembers those who destroyed the universities of Nalanda and Takshila. It is said that the library Nalanda University But the thinking of that university is still alive, “said Shah.

Shah advised the youth to understand their duty towards the country and talked about India’s defense policy. Before Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power, India did not have a defense policy and although it existed, it was a shadow of foreign policy, Shah alleged. He claimed that the anti-terrorist surgical strikes and airstrikes had shown the meaning of India’s defense policy.

“Earlier, terrorists were sent to attack us and similar attempts were made with the Uri and Pulwama attacks. But through surgical strikes and air strikes, we have shown what defense policy means,” he said. India “worships peace, seeks peace” and has friendly relations with every country in the world, he said.

“India is a geo-cultural country and many people will not understand the concept of India until they understand it. Some people call India a country of problems, but we believe that our country has the capacity to solve millions of problems. From 2014 to 2022, Prime Minister Modi Under it, India has achieved a lot and billions of poor people have begun to consider themselves part of the country. ”

Shah praised the new education policy and said it was the first of its kind which was “welcomed by all.” Referring to the 5 + 3 + 3 + 4 project in NEP, Shah said it is very important to teach children in their mother tongue in the first five years. “One should learn French, different Chinese, but if I do not read Gujarati, Hindi, I will not be able to connect with my roots,” he claimed. “For me, it is a matter of pride that DU has invited me to present my views. I was hesitant for a few minutes as to whether I should go or not, but then I decided that I should go and I should go. Talk to people. “It’s a great achievement that you can retain your relevance even after 100 years,” Shah said.
