Yet to receive committee report on Tipu lessons in textbooks: Karnataka Minister

Bengaluru, Dec 16 (ANI): Speaking on the matter regarding Tipu Sultan's lessons in Class 7 and 10 textbooks, Karnataka Primary and Secondary Education Minister, S Suresh Kumar told ANI that he is yet to receive the committee's report on it. Kumar said, "We are yet to receive the reports prepared by the committee regarding lessons on Tipu Sultan in textbooks. We have not received any report. Once I get the report, I will go through it, discuss with the Education team and take necessary action." BJP legislators like Appachu Ranjan objected to Tipu lessons in Class 7 and 10 textbooks glorifying him as a freedom fighter. Ranjan alleged Tipu was a tyrant and thus does not warrant being declared a 'freedom fighter'.
