The BJP-led government is accused of “rewriting history” as the textbook revision committee has reportedly inserted a section on Vinayak Damodar Savarkar in the revised high curriculum in the state. The text book of Kannada’s class 8 says that Mr. Savarkar used to sit on bird’s wings and fly out to visit the homeland while he was imprisoned in the Andaman jail.

“There was not even a keyhole in the cell where Savarkar was incarcerated. But, Bulbul birds used to visit the room, and Savarkar used to sit on their wings and fly out and visit the motherland everyday”, a passage in the new textbook says.



The text book which is in question, is a second language book and is still not available for public view on the Karnataka text book society’s official website. The particular chapter on Vinayak Savarkar, introduces him to the kids and is followed by an excerpt from a travelogue on the Andamans written by KT Gatti, a Kannada writer.

Upon being questioned regarding the same, Made Gowda, managing director of KTBS, stated that he was unaware of the content and would require consulting the team before commenting on it.

Savarkar’s role in the Indian freedom struggle has been a big ideological flash point between the Rashthriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the ideological mentor of BJP and Congress.

Here’s how internet reacted to the narrative that took place in the text book :
