Textbook row | Here are the 8 changes made by State Government

by mcdix

The opposition, writers, educators, and seers called the corrections “too inadequate” and demanded the complete withdrawal of the revised textbooks. On Monday, the state government issued a notice making eight corrections to the Class I to Class X Kannada and Social Science textbooks. Amid hundreds of objections from the general public, representatives, and visionaries of various communities to the changes made by the Textbook Review Commission, headed by Rohith Chakrathirtha, the state government has made some changes to the revised textbooks.

Last Saturday, BJP state president Nalin Kumar Kateel claimed that the government would not take back the revised textbooks. Speaking to reporters, Mr. Kateel had said: “The BJP government is not here to make excuses as demanded by the opposition parties and to take back the revised textbooks. We are the governing government and know how to manage the administration.” But days after this statement, the state government reported eight changes — including corrections, recordings, and re-recordings of deleted sections.



Class VII, Social Sciences (Part – 1): Complete Lesson on Bhakti Panth and Sufi Saints, Including Purandaradasa, Kanakadasa, and Other Saints. Class IX, Social Sciences: Add the “Samvidhana Shilpi” Prefix to Dr. BR Ambedkar Class VI, Social Science Lesson on ‘Namma Hemmeya Rajya Karnataka’ (Part -1): Rules on Services by Siddaganga Mutt and Adichunchanagiri Mutt Class VIII, Social Sciences: Details of Surapura Naikas

Class VII, Kannada: Author name of ‘Gombe Kalisuva Neethi’ corrected to Chi. Udayashankar. It was incorrectly printed as Dr. RN Jayagopal. Class IX, Social Sciences (Part – 1): passage on the 12th-century reformer Basaveshwara who was informed of his revolt against Brahminism. It will now be properly edited so as not to hurt feelings. However, the statement did not contain details of the changes.


Class IV, Environmental Sciences: Dropping the Controversial Line “Kuvempu became a famous poet because of encouragement from various people” However, the opposition, writers, educators, and seers called the corrections “too inadequate” and demanded the complete withdrawal of the revised textbooks. Chief among them was the opposition leader in the Assembly, Siddaramaiah, who criticized the BJP government in a series of tweets.@BJP4Karnataka tries in vain to save itself from shame by correcting some errors in revised textbooks. There are still more holes wide open than closed. The only solution is to roll back revised books and continue with the old ones.#ಪಠ್ಯಪರಿಷ್ಕರಣೆpic.twitter.com/6dJ5phSr08— Siddaramaiah (@siddaramaiah) June 27, 2022. Even if the controversy refuses to subside, the state government is adamant about deviating from its decision. Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said that while some changes had been made, the government had also decided not to change many things in the revised textbooks.
