CM Patel: New NEP to Highlight the Valor of India’s Forgotten Heroes

In a call to acknowledge and celebrate India’s historical valour, Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel emphasised the significance of the new National Education Policy (NEP) in portraying the country’s true history and heroism. Speaking at Hemchandracharya North Gujarat University in Patan during the Rajmata Nayika Devi Gaurav Din event, CM Patel underscored the importance of recognising unsung heroes and heroines who have shaped India’s legacy.

Addressing the gathering on Sunday, the Chief Minister highlighted that the new NEP aims to provide a comprehensive and authentic depiction of India’s rich historical tapestry. “The stories of Lakshmibai, Rani Chenamma, and Rani Ahalyabai are well-known and celebrated. However, we equally must bring to light the bravery and courage of Nayika Devi,” he stated. Rajmata Nayika Devi, a historical figure celebrated for her military prowess, is credited with defeating the formidable army of Mohammad Ghori, a fact that CM Patel insists must be shared with the world.

The event, organised by the state unit of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, honoured Rajmata Nayika Devi’s contributions and legacy. CM Patel’s speech resonated with the audience as he called for the inclusion of her story in educational curricula, reinforcing the NEP’s goal of fostering a well-rounded and truthful historical education.

“Rajmata Nayika Devi’s courage should be presented to the world. She is credited with defeating the army of Mohammad Ghori,” the CM said. His words were met with applause and approval from those in attendance, who shared his sentiment that Indian history must be taught in its entirety, emphasising the courage and resilience of its heroes and heroines.

An official statement from the Chief Minister’s office reiterated the commitment to the NEP’s objectives. “The Union government’s new education policy will help our students learn the true history of valour and bravery,” it read. This policy is designed to provide academic knowledge and instil a sense of pride and patriotism among the youth by acknowledging the sacrifices and achievements of India’s historical figures.

The Rajmata Nayika Devi Gaurav Din event, named after the revered queen, saw a convergence of scholars, historians, and local dignitaries who discussed the impact of Nayika Devi’s legacy on contemporary Indian society. Hemchandracharya North Gujarat University, the venue for the event, also announced initiatives to incorporate more regional and national heroes into their academic programs, aligning with the NEP’s vision.

Chief Minister Patel’s speech marks a significant step towards redefining historical narratives within Indian education. By emphasising the bravery of Rajmata Nayika Devi, the event not only celebrated her legacy but also highlighted the broader objective of the NEP to present a more inclusive and accurate portrayal of Indian history.
