IUML’s crescent and star in question paper evokes protest

Printing of “crescent and star,’’ which is associated with Islam and part of the flag of Indian Union Muslim League (IUML), in question papers in Kerala has evoked protest from various quarters. Congress ally IUML is handling the education department in the state.

The crescent and star had appeared in the first and last pages of Social Science question paper (English medium) for the 10th class examination, conducted by the state examination board, which was held on Monday. The symbols, associated with religion, have replaced the full stop mark or blameless symbols such as circles given at the end

In the last four years, the education department had landed in similar embarrassing situations. An officer with the educational department had asked ordered that women appearing for the minister’s programme should wear saree with green border. As the green is the colour of the flag of IUML, the directive became controversial and was withdrawn later.
