Karnataka BJP removes Hinduphobic poem of Dalit writer from curriculum

Bengaluru: In a praising move, the Karnataka’s BJP government has ordered to remove the controversial poem of a Dalit writer for hurting the sentiments of Hindus.

The poem ‘Bhumi’ which was written by Siddalingaiah is a part of the “Nali-Kali” section of a textbook of the 4 standard. The poem was incorporated into the syllabus by the Textbook Revision Committee headed by Baraguru Ramachandrappa during the Congress rule.

The poem says that no one has seen the ‘aatma’ and that Shastras and Puranas are bundles of lies, and the palace and the abode of the guru are also traps. The poem also rejects the existence of the Sun as a god.

Due to the Hinduphobic content of the poem it was a long-awaited demand of the Hindu groups to remove this poem from the curriculum.
