NEW DELHI, October 26, 2001: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief, K. S. Sudarshan, asked Muslims and Christians to "snatch the initiative from the fundamentalists in their communities," "re-interpret" their scriptures in keeping with the modern world by paying attention to those verses which preached tolerance and goodwill. He also defended the government's moves to change school textbooks. The communists had "surreptitiously infiltrated into academic institutions" over the years and "purged history textbooks" of all aspects which would have aroused patriotism and self-esteem, he said.
