Kozhikode: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday accused Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh of attempting to alter history. The people who know history cannot ignore the leaders such as P Krishna Pillai and Mohammed Abdur Rahiman Sahib, who were brutally assaulted for leading national movements in the country, said the CM.

The CM was inaugurating the P Krishna Pillai memorial auditorium built under the Kozhikode Corporation in Kovoor. The corporation had received flak for naming the auditorium after P Krishna Pillai.

Last month, Sangh Parivar organisations and BJP protested against renaming silver jubilee hall at Tali after Mohammed Abdur Rahiman Sahib saying it was “against the cultural background of the locality popular for the Tali temple.” However, the corporation went ahead with it and inaugurated the hall.

CM said the RSS expects people to not learn about real history and heroes as the organisation had no positive role in it.

Pinarayi pointed out that the RSS had resorted to stances in favour of the British when the independence struggles were progressing in the country. RSS leader Golwalkar advised the youth to not exhaust their health and time by protesting against the colonialists. Hence, they are attempting to create false histories to cover up their image in the public domain, alleged the CM.

The union government has removed Mahatma Gandhi from the textbooks. If students learn about Mahatma, they will have to study how he was killed. Soon they will also learn why RSS was banned in the country following Gandhi’s martyrdom. All these will eventually disturb the propaganda of RSS. However, the chapters taught in Kerala will continue to be taught without any change, added CM.

The CM lauded the corporation for naming the auditorium on behalf of P Krishna Pillai.
