The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has announced to drop the objectionable content against Sikhs from the political science textbook for Class 12 of the CBSE.

The portions have been removed in view of a representation fom the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee and a recommendation of the expert group set up by the NCERT.

Speaking to ANI, Sanjay Kumar, Secretary of School Education, said that in the chapter of political science of Class 12, there were two to three such lines in reference to which a letter was given by the SGPC to the NCERT director and he was requested that some points related to the Anandpur Sahib resolution be changed.

"The NCERT has its own procedure. When such a request is received, it forms a committee of experts and takes decisions based on the recommendations of the committee. The SGPC says it was written in the book that the Anandpur Sahib Resolution depicted that the Sikhs wanted a 'separate Sikh nation'. It objected to the point as no such thing was said in the Anandpur Sahib Resolution," he added.

School Education Secretary Kumar said the expert committee studied the Anandpur Sahib Resolution and gave its recommendation to the NCERT. On the basis of that, the NCERT has made minor changes in it.
