A question was asked in a school exam, ‘How did Gandhi ji (Mahatma Gandhi) commit suicide?’, has left the Gujarat education authorities in shock and prompted them to initiate an inquiry into it.
According to the reports by News 18, an official said, “‘Gandhijiye aapghat karwa maate shu karyu?’ (How did Gandhi Ji commit suicide?) was the question asked in Gujarati to class 9 students during an internal assessment examination of the schools run under the banner of ‘Sufalam Shala Vikas Sankul’.”
Not only this, but there was another question for class 12 students which was about “writing a letter to district police chief complaining about the rise of the sale of liquor in your area and nuisance created by the bootleggers.”
The Sufalam Shala Vikas Sankul is an organization of some self-financed schools that gets a grant from the government in Gujarat.
The district education officer of Gandhinagar district reportedly said, “A cluster of self-financed schools and those getting grants including these two questions for internal assessment exams held on Saturday. These questions are highly objectionable and we have initiated an inquiry. Action will be taken after the report comes in.”
He further informed that the question papers were set by the management of Sufalam Shala Vikas Sankul and the district education department had nothing to do with it.
