Recently, when a picture of “Jauhar” was removed from the NCERT of Eighth Standard Textbook, two of the Congress Ministers Pratap Singh Kachariyawas and Gopal Singh Idawa, disappointed by the act, went to the Chief Minister of Rajasthan and stated their disapproval in what was done by the education minister Govind Singh Dotasar. Jauhar is well defined as the self-immolation of women to capture, enslavement or rape by invaders who come from the foreign state during the war. Jauhar is usually related with pride and confidence of Rajput women. Answering to the disapproval, Govind Singh said that the picture did not match with the poem depicted in front of the picture in the book, thus, the review committee suggested that the picture should be removed from that place. He also stated that had it said that Rani Padmavati committed Jauhar, then it could have made sense and could have been retained. And not only this, Many Chapters on Jauhar have been retained in other classes as a part of the syllabus. Earlier also, Govind reasoned that since no the women are free from sati like system, the students should not be taught about such things instead they should be taught about how women are bringing development and changes in the country. Pratap Singh replied that system of Sati is different from that of Jauhar. Also, he stated that many other changes are done by the education minister and thus ministers are questioning the position of Govind Singh.
