Military education need of the hour: RSS
"Current education system is business oriented…Foreigners have adopted our education system and our police-makers are imitating theirs..This should be rectified," Bhagwat said. Bhonsala Military School was founded in 1937 by the staunch Hindu leader Dr B S Moonje who also played a role in mentoring Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) founder K B Hedgewar. "The Bhonsala Military School was founded by Moonje in a view to protect the nation and has been acting as a feeder institute to fulfil backlog of military officials," the RSS chief said.
Senior RSS functionary Prakash Pathak informed that the BMS was going to start a similar facility exclusively for girls in Nashik. The BMS run by the Central Hindu Military Education Society (CHMES) is also mulling to set up a flying club and a pilot training institute besides a centre for service preparation and aeronautic engineering education.
"We are receiving proposals from the states of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Uttarakhand for setting up military schools there and will soon take a call on them," Pathak said. Bhagwat also released a book `Smaran Samaranche` written by city-based Girish Takale.
