Text on Periyar removed from class 10 book in Karnataka

Controversy has erupted over the exclusion of sections on Periyar and Narayana Guru from the 10th standard social studies textbook in Karnataka.

Amid controversy over the inclusion of RSS founder KP Hedkewar’s text in school textbooks in Karnataka, it has now come to light that lessons on social reformers Sri Narayana Guru and Periyar have been removed from the 10th standard social science textbook.

The neglect of Narayana Guru’s lesson is likely to become a controversy, especially in the coastal and Malnad areas of the state, which is heavily populated by social reformers. There have been protests and debates over the inclusion of RSS leader Keshav Paliram Hegde’s speech.

In this case, the PDF of the new social science textbook has been published on the website of the State Textbook Institute. Part 5 features a lesson entitled Social and Religious Reform Movements.

That chapter contains information about Rajaram Mohan Raj, the founder of the Brahma Samaj, Dayanand Saraswati, the founder of the Arya Samaj, Atmaram Bandurang, the founder of the Prarthana Samaj, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, the founder of the Ramakrishna Mission, and Swami Vivekananda. But the information about Periyar and Narayana Guru in the previous edition has been deleted.

Former Congress legislator JR Lobo told reporters that the development was an insult to the great social reformer and that the government still had a chance to add the missing textbook as textbooks had not yet been printed.

Earlier this year, Lobo recalled the disappearance of Narayana Guru from Kerala from a Republic Day parade vehicle, saying that despite their opposition to the development at the time, the table may have been omitted due to oversight, but now, their purpose has become much clearer. He said the table also appears to have been deliberately left out.
