NCERT Textbook Controversy


Standard 7 book ‘Our Past – 2’ (‘Hamare Atit – 2’)

ncert-hamare-ateetThe curriculum of NCERT is often riddled with controversies. Either the great revolutionaries like Bhagat Singh are insulted by referring to them as ‘terrorists’ or a distorted history is taught. Out of the 154 pages of the history text book of 7th standard, most of the pages have been dedicated to the information on Mughals and other Muslim kings who had invaded Hindustan, whereas the history of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj who fought the foreign Mughal aggressors and established Hindu state was concluded in just 4 lines. We are giving here the examples from the textbook to make ther topic clear. Not only this, the books contains pictures of kings of 16th century like Babar, Akbar etc. but there is not a single picture of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj who ruled in the 17th century.

Some objectionable mistakes from Std 7 th book ‘Our Past – 2’
In the text book of NCERT for Standard 7 ‘Our Past – ll’ there are only 5 lines on Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj.
60 pages given to Mughal’s history and Mughal rulers who made the Hindus slaves. Not even a single photo of valorous Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj is printed. The place for the photograph is left blank. While the photos of atrocious, tyrannical Muslim kings, Babar and his descendants starting from 700 AD are printed. No mention of Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaja’s ‘Hindavi Swarajya’ but it is just mentioned as ‘local government’. No mention at all of Maharana Pratap who had fought with Mughal and who sacrificed the leisure of royal palace and used to sleep on the grass like ordinary people.
