Bengaluru: State’s Primary and Secondary Education Minister S Suresh Kumar has ordered that the text from class 6 Social Science textbook that was insulting to Brahmins be dropped immediately.

The minister said in a statement that the Principal Secretary of the Department of Public Instruction has been instructed to omit the text in Part 1, Chapter 7 as it hurts Brahmin sentiments.

The Department of Public Instruction has been notified to issue the necessary circular regarding this. The Managing Director of the Karnataka Textbook Society has been directed to convene a committee of teachers and subject matter experts and submit report within 15 days of any such complex issues in any of the subjects in the Social Sciences and Language textbooks of the Department. Once the report is received an expert panel will be constituted to review all such texts, the statement further read.

“The swamiji of Mantralaya telephoned me and expressed that the text is hurting the sentiments of the Brahmin community. Since our government came to power no textbooks were revised. Steps have been taken to rectify this blunder that existed earlier. A comprehensive review of textbooks will be conducted in the near future,” Suresh Kumar said.
