Faith in Service of Humanity Conference

Dialogue at NCERT

19 February, 12 noon

Since the seminar participants wanted to learn more about the work of the NCERT, particularly with reference to the Supreme Court decision of 12 September, 2002 regarding the National Curriculum Framework for School Education, 2000, Dr. J. S. Rajput, Director of NCERT, invited them to visit NCERT. Eighteen foreign delegates thus went to NCERT, where they entered into an in-depth dialogue with Dr. J. S. Rajput and department heads. Dr. Rajput was very impressed with the brilliance of their questions, and the delegates were very impressed with his replies. They asked, for instance, what NCERT does about teaching children about negative things that have been done in the name of religions. Dr. Rajput answered that those dark events are brought up, but explained as the work of cultures and institutions, not of the founders’ teachings.
