Faiz verses excluded from Class 10 textbook in latest CBSE tweak

  • In an out of the blue move, verses by famous poet Faiz Ahmed Faiz, which had been part of the CBSE's Class 10 Democratic Politics II book, were removed in the latest syllabus revision.

  • The syllabus revision document for the academic year 2022-23 stated, that the segment on religion, communalism and politics will continue to be part of the course content — “excluding image on page 46, 48, 49”.

  • Also dropped from the course content in the book are chapters on “democracy and diversity”, which talked about concept of social divisions and inequalities along the lines of race and caste across the world, “popular struggle and movements” with focus on Nepal and Bolivia; and, “challenges to democracy” on reforming democratic politics.
