Today Ritabrata Bandyopadhyay wrote a letter to the prime minister of India where he raised his voice to protect the languages
like Bengali, urdu, arbi and also the other vital symbols of the rich Indian culture. Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas, headed by Dina Nath Batra, a former head of Vidya Bharati, has made many recommendations to NCERT regarding the school textbooks. This recommendation demands removal of English, Urdu and Arabic words, a poem by the revolutionary poet Pash, a couplet by Mirza Ghalib, the thoughts of Rabindranath Tagore, extracts from painter M F Husain’s autobiography, references to the Mughal emperors as benevolent rulers. Ritabrata opposed this recommendation strongly. As he said, this recommendation of Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas insults Rabindranath Tagore as well as the entire nation since these act against our national colour. In his letter to Narendra Modi Ritabrata highlighted, people will never tolerate the insult of Tagore. Innumerable generations of India recites in a free voice “where the mind is without fear”. Ritabrata asks entire people to get united and fight to protect the idea of India. In this concern, he urged our Prime Minister to intervene in this very serious matter & ensure that Tagore & other luminaries must not be insulted at any cost.
