Union Education and Skill Development Minister Shri Dharmendra Pradhan said that Anusilan Samity was a prominent secret revolutionary society operating from Bengal in the 20th century with a mission to overthrow colonial rule and give momentum to India’s struggle for freedom. The Minister hoists the Tiranga at this edifice of courage, sacrifice & inspiration.
Shri Pradhan said that founded by Satish Chandra Pramatha Mitra, Aurobindo Ghose and Sarala Devi, Anusilan Samity was one among the many illustrious institutions from the pious land of Bengal that shaped the nation’s conscience through nationalist writings, publications and emphasis on Swadeshi.
He further said that legends like Deshabandhu Chittaranjan Das, Surendranath Tagore, Jatindranath Banerjee, and Bagha Jatin were associated with Anusilan Samity. Hedgewar was also an alumnus of the Samity. Blessed to pay reverence to these greats, especially during the Amrit Mahotsav, he added.
The Minister urged NCERT and the Education fraternity to include enough information about Anusilan Samity, especially in the upcoming National Curriculum Framework. Important information about the chronicles of Anusilan Samity in our textbooks will inspire the next generation, he added.
