CBSE Apologizes for the Gujarat Clash question in the Class 12 Exam!! The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Wednesday said that question on 2002 Gujarat communal riots asked in its class 12 sociology Term 1 board paper was inappropriate and in violation of its guideline. It also said that strict action would be taken against “responsible persons”.
“A question has been asked in today’s class 12 sociology Term 1 exam which is inappropriate and in violation of the CBSE guidelines for external subject experts for setting question papers.
CBSE acknowledges the error made and will take strict action against the responsible persons the board said in an official statement. The multiple-choice question — “The unprecedented scale and spread of anti Islamic violence in Gujarat in 2002 took place under which government?” — was part of the term one question paper.
The options offered were — Congress, BJP, Democratic and Republican. It further added that CBSE guidelines for paper setters outlined that question should be academic-oriented and should be class and religion – neutral. “Questions should not touch upon domains that could harm sentiments of people based on social and political choices.”
