Hyderabad: Congress President Rahul Gandhi has extended his support to the Dalit Thinker and academician Kancha Ilaiah over the alleged move by the University of Delhi to ban his three books.

Rahul Gandhi calls it an attempt by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to keep Dalits “Disempowered” and propagate a “Unilateral view of Hinduism.”

Rahul Gandhi has written a letter to Ilaiah and expressed his solidarity against the move made by the University administration.

“I write this letter to express my solidarity against the majoritarian move being made by the Delhi University by recommending the ban of three of your books from the university’s political science curriculum,” said Rahul in his letter to the Dalit Thinker.

Gandhi said, “Their aggressive move to propagate a unilateral view of Hinduism is deplorable.”

Congress president said Ilaiah’s book was part of the University syllabus for over a decade, without any questions being raised on their impact on the mind of students.

“Now the RSS, which cannot boast of any intellectual or academic capital, is seeking to destroy academic integrity by silencing diverse voices.
