The state council of the Bharatheeya Vichara Kendram (BVK) has called  upon the government to include the teachings of great saints such as Swami Vivekananda and Sree Narayana Guru in the curriculum to help children build their character.

In a resolution, the council said the government should include the biographies and teachings of these Indian leaders in the curriculum from the high school to the university level. 

The state council met here on Friday as part of the 30th state conference of the BVK, which will begin on Saturday.

In another resolution, the meeting expressed deep concern over the increasing tendency of showing disrespect towards Indian cultural images. “It has to be viewed  seriously that those who are supposed to be duty bound, showing allegiance to the Constitution, are showing disrespect to Indian cultural images,” the resolution said.

Some ministers are reluctant to light the ceremonial lamp during public functions.

A Minister said that he would not stay in the official residence named ‘Ganga’ before renaming it as ‘Grace’.

“Depicting Ganga and the ceremonial lamp as religious symbols are part of enforcing ‘Talibanism’, the  resolution said.

The resolution protested against the neglect meted out to Swami Vivekananda even during the time of  celebrating his 150th birth anniversary day as the National Youth Day.

 BVK state president M Mohandas presided over the function. BVK director P Parameswaran inaugurated the State Council meeting.
