Lately, any discourse in the country, whether at the dinner table, in the cubicle, or in academia, has sadly turned into a cesspool. Any conversation with the slightest deviation from the ideology of the current dispensation can land you in trouble at the cost of your livelihood (or worse…). Karan Sangwan, a former tutor at Unacademy, was sacked by the edtech company for espousing his views on electing government. Karan is the founder of Legal Pathsala on YouTube and has an LLM in Criminal Law. According to his profile on the portal, Karan joined the edtech firm in February 2020, at the height of the pandemic. On August 19, the law tutor, during his online class, appealed to his class to vote for educated candidates. It stirred the right winger hornet’s nest, causing much uproar. Following which Sangwan was sacked from his duties.

Roman Saini, the co-founder of the edtech firm, remarked in a statement that the sacking of Sangwan was due to a breach of contract. Per Saini, a classroom is not a place to share personal opinions. Saini has since blocked replies to his tweet.

We are an education platform that is deeply committed to imparting quality education. To do this we have in place a strict Code of Conduct for all our educators with the intention of ensuring that our learners have access to unbiased knowledge.

The biggest takeaway from the firing of Karan Sangwan by UnAcademy is that even Bhakts know that his degree is fake.

Hi @RomanSaini, please ask ur people at Graphy to stop pestering us. We at Deshbhakt work with people who have a spine.
If appealing to students to vote for educated candidates is breaching ur ‘Code of Conduct’ then its time u stop calling urself a learning / education platform.

Meet Roman Saini, Co Founder of Unacademy and a BJP Bhakt

Hi guys, thanks for your support. I take back my words I said in my last lecture at unacademy.

However, I would like to say that if you want to vote, vote for anyone but don’t vote for Roman Saini’s fake father.

Roman ji, opinions & debates are the essential part of learning and that too specially in the legal education field.

Karan Sangwan only advocated for the educated leadership. You are earning millions just because of that very education. Your move is cowardly & selfish. 👎

You can be the most powerful man in your country with academicians and scholars genuflecting to you, but it’ll still agonize every ounce of your being every time someone points out your lack of education.

That’s what illiteracy does.

Makes you perpetually insecure.

An institution that cannot stand with its teacher for saying don’t vote for uneducated leaders can never think about the future of its students.#UninstallUnacademy

— Narundar (@NarundarM) August 17, 2023

Ok then.
