Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani on Monday dismissed the charge that education under the present government was being saffronised and backed an education system that promotes a career in sports and politics. "I never ask students about the religion as we do not discriminate the right of a student to education on the basis of caste or religion," the Minister said.
To buttress the point that education was not being discriminated along religious lines, Irani referred to the appointment of Vice Chancellor of Central University of Gujarat, Syed Bari.
Talking to AajTak, Irani supported the views of a student that the education system should be such that it has enough scope for promoting a career in sports and politics.
