Former CBI interim director and senior IPS officer M. Nageswara Rao has claimed that Indian history has been tampered and has made a series of tweets which have been described as ‘communal’.
Rao has claimed that education minister mentioned Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Humayun Kabir, M.C. Chagla, Fakruddin Ali Ahmed and Nurul Hasan had “de-Hinduised” every aspect of education and public instruction and that there was even “Abrahamisation” of the NCERT syllabus.
His statements have been described as a violation of service rules that public servants must follow. Will he be dismissed for these tweets? The Wire’s Arfa Khanum Sherwani discusses the issue.
