Chandigarh – The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) on Saturday demanded a high level probe and stern action against the officials guilty of deleting chapters related to the era of Sikh Gurus from the Class XII history book of Punjab School Education Board (PSEB). Former Education minister Dr Daljit Singh Cheema, who also wrote a letter in this regard to Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, said that the development was shocking that the state’s own school board had expunged the history makers of Punjab from the history books of Punjab.Calling for a thorough probe into the issue, Dr Cheema said that the move could be part of a deep rooted conspiracy to rob the future generations of Punjabis from knowledge about the history of Sikh Gurus and Sikh warriors of Punjab. He said corrective measures should be undertaken immediately including ban on sale and distribution of the new class twelve history book. Divulging details about this unfortunate development, the SAD leader said there were 23 chapters carrying information about Sikh Gurus, Sikh warriors and historical facts about Punjab in the Class XII history book.
