A seventh class questionnaire from the Bihar state board of education has placed Kashmir as a separate country. In the examination conducted by the Bihar Education Project Council, the question was asked, “What are the people of Kashmir called?”
According to media reports, the incident occurred at the class VII semester exam in Kishanganj, Seemanchal district of Bihar.
BJP state chairman Dr. Sanjay Jaiswal took aim at the state government for this. He has alleged that Hindi schools across the Seemanchal region were closed on Friday and now this Class VII quiz, asks what people living in Nepal, China, England, Hindustan and Kashmir are called.
Dr. Jaiswal alleged through his Facebook post on Tuesday that the question itself shows that government officials from the Bihar government and Bihar government do not consider Kashmir as part of India. The proof of this is the Class VII Bihar Education Project Council quiz which is working to instill in the minds of children that just as China, England, India, Nepal are a country, Kashmir is also a nation.
