NCERT’s glorification of Aurangzeb backfires as they couldn’t produce a single source 2 prove D tyrant’s greatness
RTI was filed by Shivank Verma, on what is D source of D paragraph that glorifies Aurangzeb,
NCERT D educational body tht develops books 4 school students replied, “The Information is not available on the files of the department.”
This query was related to NCERT history textbook for class 12, titled ‘Themes of Indian History’, which claims in one of the paragraphs, “All Mughal emperors gave grants to support the building and maintenance of places of worship.
The material being taught to the students for more than a decade, is actually not backed by historical sources, but merely an opinion of the writers. The last National Curriculum framework was developed in 2005.
D paragraph which glorifies Mughal rulers like Shahjahan & Aurangzeb is in chapter 9 of D book ‘Themes of Indian History’ titled ‘Kings and chronicles. As per D NCERT website,D chapter is written by Najaf Haider,Associate Professor, Centre 4 Historical Studies JNU New Delhi
This is not the first time that the distortion and manipulation of the history in the NCERT textbooks have been caught but Professor Atri has a whole book describing how school children have been taught factually incorrect history over the years.
In the last six and a half years, the #Modi #government has not been able to do much about the change in the curriculum of the NCERT textbooks because it was waiting for the National Education Policy.
Many such distortions are inserted by the British Imperialists, Nehruvian socialists, Marxists, and leftists in NCERT textbooks. All NCERT books require immediate attention and corrections.
