All governments, it would be argued, have their own patronages systems, their own particular brands of persons who occupy positions of office, including in the educational sphere. They also have their own ideologies which they attempt to promote through diverse means, notably through the use of influence in the educational sphere. Why then is so much fuss being made over the BJP-led government's activities in the sphere of education?

The plain answer to this question is: what this government is doing to educations is the precursor to nothing less than an assault on reason. What we are concerned about is not ideological differences, in the sense of differences in the sets of beliefs we hold, where each person holds beliefs in a necessarily provisional manner at every movement and is constantly testing these beliefs through the use of reason applied to experience. Such differences permit rational discourse; our concern precisely is that an ideology is being promoted that denies rational discourse.
