Scholars for People
MAY 20, 2016 — India Stays!
Scholars for People is happy to announce that India will not be replaced with "South Asia" in the California history frameworks. The Instructional Quality Commission voted today to let the name of the "Ancient India" chapter remain as it was, and will not change it to "South Asia" or "India (South Asia" as previously announced.
This is an important moment for everyone who rose up spontaneously to make this petition a powerful symbol of the aspirations and hopes of the people of India and the Indian diaspora (and for every supporter who believed in honesty in education and spoke up for it). Each and every of the 25,000 people, Indian and otherwise, who supported the petition deserves credit for speaking up for the basic right every human being has to the dignity and meaning of their name.
India will also NOT be deleted from some key edits that would have made it seem like there was no India outside of an "Islamic civilization stretching from the mediterranean to the Indian ocean."
"Hinduism" will also not be deleted and replaced with the sterile phrase "religion of ancient India." The commission also backtracked on its earlier decision to accept an edit by the South Asia Faculty Group deleting references to Vyasa and Valmiki.
We will share more details on the meeting and the next steps shortly.
For now, let us just say Satyameva Jayate, and India Stays!
