A Class 7 exam question paper in a school in Bihar allegedly contained a question that distinguished Kashmir from India, sparking a new controversy, news agency ANI reported.
The Education Department of the Bihar government has been conducting Mid-term examinations for the students of classes one to eight, which continued from October 12 till October 18.
It came to the fore when the students of class seven were asked in their English exam: “What are the people of the following countries called ? One is done for you.”
The paper setter cited the example of China and asked “As the people of China are called Chinese, what are the people of Nepal, England, Kashmir, and India called?”
This question was allegedly asked to these students in Araria, Kishanganj, and Katihar regions.
“We got this via Bihar Education Board. The question had to ask what are people from Kashmir called? But, it mistakenly carried as what are people of the country of Kashmir called? This was human error,” Headteacher SK Das clarified.
