Bengaluru: The textbook revision committee in Karnataka is mulling to add chapters about Karkota Dynasty from Kashmir and Ahom dynasty from Assam in the new syllabus.
Simultaneously, the committee also has decided to do away with content which deems as ‘glorification’ of Tipu Sultan. The committee will be removing sentences like ‘Tiger of Mysuru’ or ‘Freedom Fighter’ while referring to Tippu Sultan.
As per reports, apart from Tipu sultan, lessons on Babar, and Tughlaq will also have come under scrutiny during textbook revision. The pace given to these two kings will also be reduced.
The long and elaborated paragraphs on Mughal Empire will also show doors from the textbooks. Only a concise chapter on Mughals will be part of the textbook.
“Whether it’s Tippu or Shivaji, wherever we have found glorification that’s not the truth, we have decided to stick to neutral and straight facts. A lot of aspects on Tippu were not true, we are dropping it in textbooks from class 6 to class 10,” News18 quoted Rohit Chakrathirtha who heads the textbook revision committee as saying.
The committee has also decided to remove the introduction part of the ‘Emergence of a new religion — Buddhism and Jainism’ chapter.
Meanwhile, Congress has criticized the move and said that the current history books do not support their narrative.
