SIO demands action against ‘Islamophobic’ content in Telangana school textbook

-

- Advertisment -

The Students Islamic Organisation of India (SIO) has demanded that the Telangana government should immediately take action against the ‘Islamophobic’ content in Class 8 school textbook.

The Telangana chapter of the organization took strong exception to a picture published in the ‘Question Bank’ for the Social Studies (English medium) of the Class 8.

The picture of a ‘terrorist’ shows him holding a rocket launcher in his right hand and carrying the holy Quran in his left hand. The picture was used in the chapter ‘National movement – the last phase 1919-1947’.

Dr Talha Faiyazuddin, State President SIO, Telangana, said that “Peace must be infused in the minds of students through Peace Education and Peace Curriculum in Educational Institutions, SIO condemns & demands the education ministry, not to approve such a distracting content and take actions against such irresponsible and propagandist behavior. SIO demands that the Publishers should delete the toxic content and republish the new edition”.

The publication also faced criticism from many users on social media.
