Why didn’t you question Modi when he called Pakistan’s Takshila part of Bihar: State’s Edu minister to BJP

A class seventh question paper of a Bihar school.

Bihar: As the question paper of a Bihar school mentioned Kashmir as a separate, prompting the officials to issue a swift clarification, the state’s education minister Chandra Shekhar Singh on Wednesday assured a thorough probe and termed it a serious matter

The question was asked to the students of Class VII during the examination in Kishanganj district of the state.

Singh said there would be no lapses in the investigation of this matter and it would be probed thoroughly.

“This is a serious matter for which the probe shall take place even if it involved top officials,” he said. earlier, the school head termed it a ‘human error’.

“The question was to be asked, what are the people of Kashmir called? It was wrongly asked that what are the people of the country of Kashmir called? This was a human error,” ANI quoted the headteacher of the school SK Das as saying.

Bihar BJP state president Sanjay Jaiswal took to his social media and shared the image of the question paper alongside captioning it as: “…Bihar government is still silent on my concern that they feel Kashmir as not a part of India. This question itself advocates that the officials in Bihar government consider Kashmir as a different country as Nepal, England, China, and India.”

Reacting to Jaiswal’s allegations, Singh asked why nobody pointed out when Prime Minister Narendra Modi called Pakistan’s Taksh Shila part of Bihar.

“Why did you not question when PM Modi called Taksh Shila a part of Bihar? That was as legit human error as the one that has been made now,” Singh said.

However, this is not the first time Kashmir was called a separate country or called a part of China or Pakistan.

Earlier in January 2021, World Health Organisation, in its report regarding COVID, segregated J&K and Ladakh from India saying it ‘followed the United Nations guidelines’ while drawing the map.

Later in the same year, Saudi Arabia showed J&K as a separate territory in its global map imprinted on the 20 Riyal banknote released to mark the kingdom’s presidency of the G20 summit.
