Literacy Was 70% In India And 17% In England, Before British Rule
RSS chief revealed, 70% of India’s population was educated & there was no unemployment, before British rule. Whereas England had only 17% literacy at that time.
Mohan Bhagwat, the leader of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), stated on Sunday that 70% of Indians had access to education prior to British rule. Bhagwat added that there was no unemployment in the nation.
The RSS leader made his statement while addressing a crowd after a multispecialty hospital on the Indri-Karnal Road was officially opened.
“Before British rule, there was no unemployment and 70% of the population was educated. Compared to England, where only 17% of the population was educated “said Mohan Bhagwat.
“In addition to implementing our model in their nation, the British also implemented their educational model in India.
This is how they received 70% of their education while we only received 17%, “the RSS leader stated.
“Our educational system served as a vehicle for knowledge as well as a means of obtaining employment. Everyone could afford and access education.
As a result, society has covered all the costs associated with education, and the scholars, artists, and artisans who emerged from it have received recognition on a global scale, he continued.
Bhagwat also praised the Atam Manohar Muni Ashram for its work, which included building a hospital to serve the public’s health needs.
Since both medical care and education are becoming more expensive, Bhagwat stated that the most pressing need for our nation is to ensure that everyone has access to both at affordable prices.
We don’t only live for ourselves only, says the speaker. Our culture and traditions embody the idea of Sarvjan Hitay-Sarjan Sukhay (welfare of all – happiness for all),” he said, adding that people can only see positive changes taking place in the nation by fostering society.
