The text book of science of ICSE board sixth class has a picture of noise pollution and it is illustrating the Mosque/Masjid is one of the reason for noise pollution. It is totally wrong to point at one specific religion as a one of the reason for the noise pollution. It will create unnecessary hatred among young minds of tender age kids.
Pls remove the Mosque/Masjid picture so that we can avoid polluting younger minds in our country.

ICSE’s science book uses picture of Mosque to refer to noise pollution: TCN

In a clear case of Islamophobia, a book published by Selina Publishers of Daryaganj, New Delhi has used the picture of a Mosque in one of the pictorials while explaining the sources of noise pollution.The book is called called Integrated Science for 6th standard students of ICSE. It is crucial to mention that ICSE does not publish its books like CBSE or other state boards; rather it outsource books from various privately-owned publishers.The picture shows a man standing between various sources of pollution which are airplane, a fast moving train, couple of four wheeler vehicles and a mosque which is shown to emit sound causing noise pollution. The book is edited by SK Bhasin and is claimed to be written by ‘A team of experienced teachers’.The matter came into the light after a father circulated a message on Whatsapp regarding the same. The father, whose name is not clear as message gone viral without any identity of the sender, saw the book of her daughter studying in 6th standard and noticed the anomaly.
