Editorial with Sujit Nair: India’s Past Deleted From India’s Future

The NCERT has removed portions about the 2002 Gujarat riots, Emergency, Cold War, Naxalite movement and Mughal courts from its class 12 textbooks as part of its “syllabus rationalisation” exercise. The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has cited “overlapping” and “irrelevant” as reasons for dropping those portions from the syllabus. Many of these changes were announced earlier this year when the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) rationalised its syllabi in April. Besides schools under CBSE, some state boards also use NCERT textbooks. In this episode of the Editorial, our Managing Editor Mr Sujit Nair shares his take on the matter.
