Darwin's theory of evolution to remain in school and college syllabus, says HRD Ministry

Feb 8:Two weeks after he created a controversy by calling Charles Darwin's theory of evolution "scientifically wrong", Minister of State for HRD Satya Pal Singh said on Thursday there was no proposal to remove the chapter from school or college syllabus. "CBSE has intimated that Charles Darwin's evolution of species is a part of the curriculum under the elective subject of Biology for class 12," Singh said in response to a written question in the Rajya Sabha.
On the sidelines of a meeting at IIT-Guwahati last month, Singh said our ancestors had nowhere mentioned that they saw an ape turning into a man, thereby casting doubts on Darwin's evolution theory. "Darwin's theory (of evolution of man) is scientifically wrong. It needs to change in the school and college curriculum. Since (the time that) man is seen on Earth, he has always been a man. Nobody, including our ancestors, in written or oral, said they saw an ape turning into a man," the MoS said, triggering an outrage among scientists. Singh's remarks prompted HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar to advise him against making such comments. Agencies
