Kalaburagi: The photo of three lecturers attached to the Central University of Karnataka clad in the uniform of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has gone viral on social media, stirring a row in the state.

The lecturers of the university located in Kadaganchi village in Aland taluk are also seen holding lathis and posing for the photograph. The netizens have opposed the affiliation of the lecturers with the RSS and condemned it.

The lecturers in the photo are identified as Assistant Professor of Public Relations Alokkumar Gaurav, Psychology lecturer Vijayendra Pande and Rakesh Kumar of BioScience.

The lecturers are seen posing with a young RSS volunteer and a student. The photo was taken during the RSS Pathsanchalan programme organised on the campus recently, sources said.

The university staff who are upset with the development have objected that the staff of the university can’t identify themselves with any organisation and they are not supposed to be involved in any activity other than academic and research-oriented work.

The authorities of the university have stated that the incident has not come to their knowledge.

They maintained that the incident would be verified. The lecturers of the university must confine themselves to imparting knowledge, they are not supposed to carry out other activities, the authorities have said.

  1. Absolutely wrong- to criticise them. Those should be lauded. People who are in animal welfare are lauded. And rightly so. Why not people who are in the service of the nation? Only if they indulge in activities during school hours and ignore their primary occupation for which they are paid, they should be taken to task. Here they are in the world’s largest volunteer organization. There are many orgnizations and groups which people get attached based on their interests like Rotary, Jacees, Toastmasters etc. What is wrong with getting attached to RSS? I know a lot of people will jump up and down about Mahatma and so on. All those have been resolved by the highest court in India. The Congress has banned them but could not sustain the ban and lifted it. Now they criticize. RSS is a Truly volunteer organization because none of them get paid. Those who cannot digest the resolve of the RSS to serve the nation, criticize them.
