On Saturday, Kerala Governor Arif Mohammad Khan stressed the need to revive ancient Indian culture and restore the principles of “Sanatan dharma” through proper education in the country.
Inaugurating a school in Kalan block in Shahjahanpur district of Uttar Pradesh, the governor of Kerala said there was a need to work to revive the country’s ancient culture.
“Everyone must work to revive the old culture of the country, not because we have to go back to it but because we have to bring back the principles of ‘Sanatan’, and that is not possible without education,” said the governor.
The Governor of Kerala also quoted Indian philosopher Swami Vivekananda saying that the purpose of human life is to attain knowledge and humility is the result of knowledge. Anyone who has humility cannot be despised.
Interestingly, this is not the first time that Arif Mohammad Khan has rooted for the revival of Indian culture. Earlier, during the hijab controversy, Arif Mohammad Khan opposed the Islamization of secular educational institutions by supporting the banning of hijab in schools and colleges. Arif Mohammad Khan also pointed out that the hijab is not an integral part of Islam.
