BJP Demands Inclusion of Hyderabad Liberation in School Curriculum

Fri, Sep 02, 2016, 06:52 PM
Hyderabad, Sept.2: Reiterating the demand of celebrating Hyderabad Liberation Day officially, Telangana BJP leader N Indrasena Reddy today demanded that the State government include Hyderabad Liberation Day in the curriculum.

Speaking to the media at State party office here, Reddy said students and youth should know the history of Hyderabad Liberation for which majority people and Muslims had also sacrificed their lives while fighting against erstwhile Nizam rule after Independence of the country.

Though the country got Independence from the clutches of British rule, Hyderabad remained under Nizam, and people had faced atrocities by Razakars, he reminded. When the people of the entire country were celebrating Independence Day, people of Hyderabad were arrested and sent to jail when they hoisted tricolor on that day, he said, adding that Hyderabad got Independence on September 17.

Indrasena Reddy pointed out that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who always praises Nizam’s draconian rule, should also include details of Hyderabad liberation struggle in the school curriculum as students and youth should have a knowledge of the history, the BJP leader said. Reddy, a former president of State BJP during united Andhra Pradesh, asserted that all Razakars were Muslims, but all Muslims were not Razakars.

He said his party was organizing various programs as part of Tiranga Yatra across the State to educate people about the atrocities of Razakars during the erstwhile Nizam rule. He said the State government should celebrate September 17 officially because, on that date, Hyderabad got Independence from the clutches of Nizam rule.

Demanding that the TRS government include Hyderabad liberation episode in the school curriculum, the party is organizing a “letter” campaign, he said. Under the campaign, letters would be sent to the Chief Minister right from booth level in support of this demand from September 10 to 14, he said.

Different cells of the party are organizing various programs educating the masses about the importance of September 17 and atrocities of Nizam rule, Reddy said, adding party’s national president Amit Shah would address a public meeting on September 17 at Warangal town.
