This image from a school textbook sparks debate over Hindu-Muslim representation

A random image from a school textbook is doing rounds on the internet for a controversial graphical representation of 2 Hindu-Muslim guys.

India is a country of diversity and inclusion. But one of the major concerns of our nation is to identify individuals based on their caste, creed, and religion. Hindus have temples and Muslims have mosques but then too from time to time we have issues regarding ‘Mandir yahi banayenge’ or ‘Masjid yahi rahega’. However, recently, this Hindu-Muslim row has taken a new turn. And obviously, it’s not a positive one. Well, the Hindu-Muslim debate has sparked a new fire on the internet when an image from a textbook went viral. Yes, you read that right. Netizens are fighting over an image from a textbook in which two sweet vendors Appan and Aslam are selling sweets but Appan is the dirty sweet vendor with no cleanliness while Aslam is the wise one in the picture.

This depiction of two Hindu-Muslim guys and also showing Appan as the bad guy has sparked debate on the internet. While some recognized Aslam as the bad guy in the image recalling the spitting incident, some criticized the depiction of a Hindu guy in the textbook.

Have a look:

What do you guys think about the image? Would you from Aslam?
