Kanchi Acharya against allowing foreign universities into India

KANCHEEPURAM: The pontiff of the Kanchi Sankara Mutt, Jayendra Saraswathi Swamigal, on Wednesday made a strong plea against allowing foreign universities on Indian soil, lest they destroy the fabric of the country’s culture and tradition.

Soon after laying the foundation stone for His Holiness Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Platinium Jubilee Complex as part of the silver jubilee celebrations of Sri Venkateswara College of Engineering at Pennalur, Sriperumbudur, the seer presaged that if foreign universities were allowed, they would introduce their retrograde culture on Indian soil, and, moreover, “all our universities will have to be closed.”

The Kanchi seer, however, said MoUs could be entered into with such universities, “but their presence in the country will prove death knell for our glorious tradition”. The Central government until recently was toying with the idea of entertaining such universities, but after the idea was met with stiff resistance by like-minded people and institutions, it piped it down, he explained.“When our students go abroad to pursue higher studies, they return well equipped to serve the country better. On the contrary, foreign students sow seeds of their retrograde culture wherever they go,” he said.
