One of the early lessons in history we learn is that Mahatma Gandhi was killed by Nathuram Godse on January 30, 1948 in Birla House located in New Delhi. However, a school question paper in Gujarat, the state where Gandhiji was born, has thrown the whole thing apart by asking a question that confused students.

Gujarat exam question asks \"How did Mahatma Gandhi commit suici

A question "Gandhijiye aapghaat karwa maate shu karyu?" (How did Gandhiji commit suicide?) was asked in Class 9 question paper in Gujarati in schools under the banner of ‘Sufalam Shala Vikas Sankul’, reports India Times.

Another question about alcohol was also asked. It is to be noted that Gujarat is a dry state. The question was 'Writing a letter to district police chief complaining about the rise in sale of liquor in your area and nuisance created by bootleggers."

"A cluster of self-financed schools and those getting grants included these two questions for internal assessment exams held on Saturday. These questions are highly objectionable, and we have initiated an inquiry. Action will be taken after the report comes in," Gandhinagar's district education officer Bharat Vadher told PTI.
