What do students of Class III in Jodhpur schools study for moral science? That rape-accused, self-styled godman Asaram Bapu is a “great saint”.

On page 40 of the book Naya Ujala, the rape-accused godman is featured with Guru Nanak, Swami Vivekananda, Mother Teresa, Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Dayanand. The book published by Delhi-based Gurukul Prakashan, claims to be based on NCERT’s Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation guidelines.

However, Jodhpur District Education Officer said he did not have any information on the matter. “There is no such information that we have. How can we act if there is no information?” District Education Officer (elementary education) Prabhu Lal Panwar told The Indian Express.
