NCERT asked to remove Ambedkar cartoon from textbooks: Sibal
New Delhi, May 11 (PTI) Seeking to put a lid over the Ambedkar cartoon row, HRD Minister Kapil Sibal today said he has asked the NCERT to remove the offending picture and stop distribution of the textbooks. Making a statement in the Lok Sabha, Sibal said he had written to the NCERT in April asking it to withdraw the offending cartoon from the Political Science textbook of Class XI. Sibal said distribution of these textbooks has been stopped and a review has been ordered not just of the cartoons but also of the content of the textbooks. Next year we will remove all such contents from the textbooks, Sibal said.
