While many are celebrating the fact that the history of ‘Bharat’ will finally be presented before us, but is it fair to the subject to omit such important sections of Indian history?

The Backdrop

Following the Hijab row and the ban on Muslim traders, the government of Karnata decided to drop ‘sensitive’ chapters from the history textbooks of the state board, which attracted polarised opinions from the citizens.

A textbook Revise Committee was set under the leadership of Rohith Chakrathirtha to make the changes and suggest them to the government of Karnataka. According to a report by the Times of India in March, the committee recommended dropping off the chapters related to the glorification of Tipu Sultan.

The committee later revised the social science books of the students from classes 6 to 10. The opposition criticised the move as they stated that the committee head was a right-wing thinker. They also blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party for ‘saffronising’ the state’s education system.

Twitter Reacts

The picture which is making rounds on social media shows the history syllabus being full of ‘Hindu’ history instead of Indian history as there is no mention of the events from other religions.
However, he inclusion of a chapter named ‘Sanatana Dharma’ is seen as a clear indication of religious influence in academics.

Several social media accounts have shared the picture, celebrating the revised syllabus of social science.
