Manish Sisodia orders to investigate ‘communal’ law exam question

NOIDA- A question in the law exam at Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU) that challenges the communal harmony has made Manish Sisodia intervene into the matter. He has ordered to probe into the question which is “reprehensible” with ‘communal overtones’. The administration has been asked to submit a report within 5 days. Moreover, GGSIPU has also constituted a team to look into this matter.

The controversial question reads – “Ahmed, a Muslim, kills a cow in a market in the presence of Rohit, Tushar, Manav, and Rahul, who are Hindus. Has Ahmed committed any offense?” This question was asked in the third-semester exam of Law of Crimes-I paper at Chandra Prabhu Jain College of Higher Studies & School of Law on December 7.

Sisodia, on Tuesday, wrote to the Higher Education Secretary, “The media reports have brought in my notice that such an objectionable question was asked in the exam of LLB 3rd semester in the college names School of Law at Narela which is affiliated to GGSIPU. How the concerned person can incorporate such objectionable question with communal overtone into the question paper? Higher Education Secretary has been asked to investigate the matter and submit the report within five days.

On Monday, GGSIPU had said that they had retrospectively “deleted” the question and would not be marking students based on it.
