Kashmir mentioned as a separate country in the 7th Standard question paper in Bihar

Kishanganj (Bihar) – Kashmir has been mentioned as a separate country in the 7th Standard question paper by the Bihar Education Project Council (BEPC).

In their mid-term English exam, the students of 7th Standard in Araria, Kishanganj and Katihar Districts were asked : “What are the people of the following countries called ? One is done for you.”

The paper 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 ?’ One school Headmaster SK Das said, “We got this (paper) from the BEPC. The question should have been – What are the people of Kashmir called ? But, it mistakenly asked what are the people of the country of Kashmir called ? This was human error”. (Patriots of this country feel that instead of calling this mistake a ‘human error’, the attitude and psychology of the teacher who set the question paper should be examined ! What would the teachers, who set such question papers, be teaching the children ? – Editor)

BJP criticised the Government for this grave error. The BJP State President Dr Sanjay Jaiswal took to social media and shared the image of the question paper. He said, “This question itself advocates that the officials in the Bihar Government consider Kashmir to be a different country as Nepal, England and India”.
