Report of child abuse in India

In India Rastriya Swayansevak Sangh (RSS) started and developed pre-primary and primary schools for boys and girls after independence (1947). They are named Saraswati Sishu Mandirs. These schools are developed in Delhi, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya pradesh, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh etc. These schools aim at countering WESTERNIZATION and secularism and inculcate Indian culture, worship of Hindu heroes and the veneration of those who fought against Muslims in India like Shivaji (in Maharastra etc). The stress would be on patriotism and Hindu religion. Some schools are setup in tribal areas too.

Brain washing is the main aim and for that purpose they inculcate hate culture against Wesernization, human values, and secular principles. The primary aim is remaking the nation to establish Hindu hegemony in all spheres. Hindu political symbols are used extensively in schools. Militancy and sacredness is clubbed into children to rouse the emotions of the students. Sanskrit slokas are chanted and sanskrit is treated as a sacred language of Hindus. Rituals and extra-curricular activities are a regular practice where students are preached hate culture. Physical education with Yoga is given top importance and a strong body is a must to fight against the evil forces of anti Hindu culture. Only devotional music is encouraged in the schools. RSS wish to spread their indoctrination culture through these schools throughout the country.

Every human being should have the opportunity to make a better life for themselves. Unfortunately, too many children in the world today grow up without this chance, because they are denied their basic right to even attend primary school. A sustainable end to world poverty as we know it, as well as the path to peace and security, requires that citizens in every country are empowered to make positive choices and provide for themselves and their families.
Lets all join this campaign:

The RSS, and other such sister organisations in India such as VHP, Bajrang Dal etc are hindu-terrorist organisations that are masquerading as 'guardians' of the 'hindu culture'.

If India breaks into a civil war anytime in the not-so-immediate future, it would be because of them.

I am not a communist, but I'm glad that Indian communists effectively counterbalance these forces.
