Shocking Blunder: ‘Kashmir is A Separate Country’

The infamous Bihar State Education Board has made it to headlines by committing another gaffe, this time by inappropriately touching an issue as sensitive as Kashmir’s.

As per reports, a question paper prepared by the Bihar State Board for class VII students across all government schools asked them this question – ‘What the people of Kashmir country are called?’

The Board’s blunder of calling Kashmir not a part of India but a separate country has received brickbats from every corner.

Following the criticism, a senior member of the Board admitted it an ’embarrassing mistake’, and called it a ‘printing error’.
