After creating a ruckus over movie Padmaavat, Rajput Samaj is now threatening stir over the glorious depiction of Alauddin Khilji in history books of school children.
The Rajput Samaj on Wednesday said that it will take to streets if the controversial chapter approved by the state government for its Class XII students, which states Khilji as a valiant warrior and the extensive coverage given to his victories, wasn’t removed.
“We have asked the government to order removal of the chapter immediately as it glorifies Khilji as a hero. Queen Padmavati has been mentioned only in a couple of lines but Khiljis pursuits have been covered in 13 pages,” general secretary of the Samaj Deepak Chouhan told The Indian Express.
Minister of State for School Education Deepak Joshi said, “The matter has been brought to his notice and it would be referred to the standing committee of the state textbook corporation that decides syllabus. The change could be incorporated only from the next academic year.”
