Tipu Sultan re-included in 7th syllabus after Facing criticism

Karnataka: The Karnataka Public Information Department in the backdrop of COVID crisis and  had decided to remove lessons on Tipu Sultan and his father Haider Ali from the 7th standard textbooks to reduce the curriculum by 30 per cent in the academic year 2020-21.  But this decision was opposed by many activists and political parties, criticising  the government.  Following the criticism, the Karnataka government has re-included the controversial 18th century Mysore Ruler Tipu Sultan’s chapters in the 7th standard syllabus.
 Following the criticism, the state government on Wednesday asked the Karnataka Text Book Society (KTBS) to re-examine all the volumes and withdraw and re-publish its syllabus.
While the  academic year yet to begin, it is not known how many days will be available to conduct classes.  So the course is not final.  Depending on the number of days available, the decision will be made scientifically.  “The course was posted on the website by mistake and I have asked the officials in our department to withdraw it,” Education minister Suresh Kumar said.  He also said that no chapter would be cut unnecessarily and no confusion would be allowed, adding that all these issues should not be given unnecessary political colour.
