A private school in Bahraich, Uttar Pradesh, found itself in the midst of controversy when a question in its 9th-grade half-yearly exam linked Islam and Indian Muslims with terrorism.

The incident took place at Guru Kripa Divine Grace Public School, sparking outrage and demands for an explanation.

During the examination, students were presented with a question regarding global terrorism, which erroneously attributed terrorism to Ideological Islamic politics.

“Terrorism is a global problem which poses a significant challenge to humanity. The main reason for this is political selfishness, greed for power and religious fanaticism, which give rise to terrorists. It is a system of thought that includes Indian Muslim terrorism, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Al Qaeda, Taliban Taliban and various organizations of Islamic politics.The right solution to the problem of terrorism can be to try to remove the reasons due to which it is increasing. To solve the problem of terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian government will have to take strict steps and stop Pakistani infiltration and strengthen its administrative hold on this state and if necessary, apart from bilateral talks with Pakistan, it will also have to be prepared for war,” the school question paper read.
