Some of the lessons dropped pertain to Hyder Ali, Tipu Sultan, Prophet Mohammad, Jesus, Rani Abbakka and lessons relating to the Indian Constitution. After this news got publicity through the media and controversy began to surface, the education department has halted the work of cutting down on the syllabus temporarily.

Commenting on, the issue primary and secondary education minister, Suresh Kumar, said that the department had proposed to cut down syllabus to be taught from first to tenth standard in a scientific manner.

    Veer Savarkar was a visionary like Abraham Lincoln. Mr Lincoln started the process of liberating the slaves from the US south. Veer Savarkar was an icon and a maratha tiger of Hindutva to liberate the hindus from Christian fiefdom of the british raj

    Veer Savarkar started as freedom fighter and after his jail term was a British sympathiser. He endorsed Hitler too.He was champion of hindutva and a Muslim baiter. It was only because of Congress and its great leaders of those days we got our freedom.

    We shouldn't give communists (Chinese) a chance, they are always trying to use race against race or religion against religion, to undermine the religions to bring their Godless atheistic rule. That's what happening in US, Hong Kong other parts of Asia.

    They want to bring chaos and anarchy and then try to bring their total communist control. Any leftist agenda is very bad for inter religious harmony. They have already started this with their evil virus to ruin the economy first, create shortages to bring chaos and anarchy everywhere, then provide financial support to dominate all (may be with incursions or invasion later stage). That's what communist chinese are doing to our neighboring countries.

    So-called "Veer Savarkar of RSS (who planned how to kill Mahatma Gandhi & informed Naturam Godse for executing his plan & both are Terrorists in Indian History forever) " and "Mohd. Ali Jinnah" are the main two conspirators for 2-Nation Theory during Post Independence of 1947 between India & Pakistan. They told to divide the Indian sub-continent on Religion. They both only argued with Late Mahatma Gandhi for Hindu-Muslim Country.

    Do you even know that he killed your ancestors ruthlessly and hated the Roman Catholics for no reason but just to please the masses.

    Wish you learn more about what he and his men did with the Catholic women and children....google is free of cost , you may spend some time doing some search on what your dear tippu did in those days.

    There are tactical retreats to live another day as dying in the Andamans would not result in bettering his cause.. Tippu also had tactical retreat when he delivered his own sons as Hostages to the British.

    @ Sunil Dsouza , jossey saldhana is a tippu sympathiser and tippu didn't kill his ancestors as he is hiding his real name and identity under a Christian name , doesn't even have guts to display his original name.

    Mr Jossy, Mr Savarkar was an atheist. He was more practical on some of the Hindu beleifs and did want Hindu religion stagnant. He was very averse to other imposing religion whose basic tenets were totalitarian. This was costing the Hindu religion badly. The appeasing nature of some of big leaders of India at that time did not go well with him.

    As Savarkar was an atheist he was not a religious bigot like Tippu.
