BJP chief Amit Shah paid tribute to Bharatiya Jan Sangh (BJS) founder Syama Prasad Mookerjee for his contribution to modern India. He said that Mookerjee will be remembered for “three major achievements” — ensuring that West Bengal remains in India, “integrating Jammu and Kashmir with India’’ and forming the BJS. “A Bill was brought in the West Bengal Assembly in 1940. It was a proposal for Islamisation of education. The Bengal Assembly did not pass it only because of his (Mookerjee)’s farsightedness,” Shah said at the release of a book, Syama Prasad Mookerjee: His Vision of Education. “How many here are aware that West Bengal is in India because of Mookerjee?” he said. “If Jammu and Kashmir is our part today, the maximum contribution is of Mookerjee’s.’’
He added that Mookerjee’s “sacrifice ensured that we Indians do not need a permit to visit Kashmir”.
