New Delhi: After a controversial question which sparked uproar, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Thursday said that it will initiate strict action against the persons responsible for this.

Notably, the question was asked in the CBSE's Sociology test Wednesday in the Term 1 Board Exams for Class 12 following which the education board later apologized for the same.

Taking to micro-blogging site twitter, CBSE said, 'A question has been asked in today's class 12 sociology Term 1 exam which is inappropriate and in violation of the CBSE guidelines for external subject experts for setting question papers. CBSE acknowledges the error made and will take strict action against the responsible persons''.

The question was "The unprecedented scale and spread of anti-Muslim violence in Gujarat in 2002 took place under which government?"

The options offered to answer this question were: Congress, BJP, Democratic and Republican.

In another tweet, the Board said that their guidelines clearly states that the question should be academic oriented.

''CBSE guidelines for paper setters clearly state that they have to ensure the questions should be academic oriented only and should be class, religion neutral and should not touch upon domains that could harm sentiments of people based on social and political choices,'' the board tweeted.
