Published on 29 February, 2016 at 6:28 pm By

The recent controversy is on an NCERT text book for class V student that was issued under the UPA Government and found some glaring factual errors in it.

Here is what the book tells us about Bhagat Singh:

 

What Bhagat Singh did was a ‘revolutionary terrorist’, according to the book.

Gujarat massacre was being blamed on ‘fundamental Hindus’ who are the ‘filth of the human race’

 

Mature and Confident Rahul Gandhi at 45 years of age is still Congress Party’s ‘bright young politician’

 

Besides this textbook, there were some other bizarre things that were written in other NCERT textbooks:

The role of ‘Netaji’ Subhas Chandra Bose in Indian history books was missing.
