11th June in Dalit History – Periyar wrote about the importance of scientific outlook in his journal Kudi Arasu


11 June 1949: The great thinker Periyar wrote in his journal Kudi Arasu in detail about the importance of scientific outlook among the students and the public.

He pointed out in the journal, “the imaginary belief of god, salvation, heaven and hell, spirit, discipline, the cycle of the impact of good deeds and bad deeds in birth and rebirth are demolished because of the development of science”

Periyar was always a staunch supporter of science and believed that science only can eliminate superstitions. In his journal Kudi Arasu (People’s Rule) and Vidhthalai(Liberation/Freedom), he wrote a number of essays frequently about the necessity of science and its uses.
