Sirsa that it was also most unfortunate that this decision has come at a time when the Prime Minister has himself ordered to NCERT and other education boards to include chapters on Chaar Sahibzade in the syllabus.Sirsa said that when efforts are being made at highest level to include chapter concerning the humanity and supreme sacrifices, Haryana has chosen to exclude chapter on Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib about whom the PM had declared that if Guru Sahib would not have given his sacrifice then India of today would not have been there. He urged the Chief Minister to urgently order restoration of the same and chapters as prevalent earlier should be included in the Haryana school syllabus.Sirsa also urged him to include a chapter on Baba Banda Singh Bahadur in the education syllabus of the state. He said that Baba Banda Singh Bahadur was the first Sovereign ruler of Northern India who fought a prolonged fight against the cruel Mughals, who were practising their tyranny, forceful religion conversion and terrorism. He urged CM to order inclusion of chapter on him at appropriate levels in education syllabus.
