What a hell they are teaching in schools!

Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of the Nation, was assassinated by Nathuram Godse on 30th January 1948 and that is the history but what is being taught in the primary schools in Uttar Pradesh (India) is that he was killed on 30th January’1941 as it finds place in the relative text book. The glaring irregularity was traced in Etawah, the home town of the Chief Minister of U.P. Akhilesh Yadav. Since the books are supplied in massive quantity in the primary schools in Uttar Pradesh uniformly, thousands of primary school students are imparted the teaching on Gandhiji’s death as 30/01/1941. The most surprising fact is that none bothered to notice the irregularity for quite a long time during which who knows what could have been the number of students who might have enriched their general knowledge with false information like this. This shows the level of education in Uttar Pradesh and also the seriousness on the part of the teachers who didn’t bother to check what they were teaching. Hell with the relative system of administration. This requires a stern most action against the people so involved.
