Well, it was high time that they did so. For long, we have tended to sweep riots and the continuing communalisation of the country under the carpet. We seem to think that closing our eyes will make these pertinent issues go away.
Well, wish it was so easy!!!
And the fact that they are including it in Class X11 curriculum makes sense. We have to understand that not talking about such issues is not going to help us rather there should be an open dialogue regarding it. Also, the coming generation needs to be educated about the dangers of right-wing politics.
The horrors of Gujarat are pretty much fresh in people's memory but to make sure that such horrors are not repeated, it is needed that we stop and reflect on them. Also, good to see the Sikh riots also being included under the Congress regime.The BJP has already started protesting but well, it is better that children read about the riots rather than experience it. And, I hope no more chapters will be added. Say Amen to that!
