Mark 'Azad Kashmir' on answer sheet map, Bangali Sanatanis angry over published test paper question
A great deal of discussion has been generated around a question in the sample question paper of the history subject of the Madhyamik test paper. The question asked to mark 'Azad Kashmir' on the map of India. Some people say that such questions are anti-national and anti-national and against the sovereignty of the country.
It may be noted that such a question appeared in a sample question paper of history on page 132 of the test paper. The question was asked by a teacher of Vivekananda Vidyamandir located in 'Maldar English Bazar'. In that question students are asked to identify several places on the map of India. It has been asked to identify 'Azad Kashmir' there.
It should be noted that the Indian government has always referred to the entire Kashmir as its integral part. Even the previous Congress government at the Center did not change their stance. India has always referred to the isolated part of Kashmir as Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
But Pakistan-backed militant organizations have been talking about occupying Indian Kashmir and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir to form independent Kashmir i.e. 'Azad Kashmir'. Not only that, but for that purpose, attacks on Kashmir soil and selective killing of Hindus are going on. Indian Army continues to fight against terrorists.
But the mention of 'Azad Kashmir' in the question paper has created a lot of confusion among the students. It does not end here. In that sample question, the students were asked to mark Chittagong on the map of India. But Chittagong is not a part of India and is currently a part of Bangladesh. Naturally, criticism has started around such a confusing question.
Some of the netizens are saying that the teacher accepted Pakistan's demand by asking such a question. Some have even claimed that the Education Department should take action against the teacher who created the sample questions.
