Darwin’s theory of evolution should not be taught in Indian schools and colleges, said Satyapal Singh- HRD Minister, Maharashtra, on Friday. The HRD Minister added that humans appeared as humans on earth, hence Darwin’s theory should not be taught.
The minister claims that no ancient Indian story as told by grandparents ever mentions that the ancestors witnessed apes transforming into humans. He said that humans appeared as humans right from the beginning and will stay that way. HRD Minister also claims that almost 35 years back it was proved by Indian scientists who lived abroad.
