After receiving severe backlash from the Hindus online learning platform unacademy was forced to withdraw a Hinduphobic question that was asked in one of its mock tests. They issued an apology for depicting Hindus as stone-pelters. Unacademy informed that the mock question paper was taken down, and in the future, the question papers would be scrutinised. In their official statement, Unacademy wrote, "A question posed in an IPC mock examination paper that contained religious references has been brought to our notice. The test paper has been taken down from the platform with immediate effect. Further, future test papers will be scrutinised and modified in accordance with our policies to ensure that it is religion, community, and race agnostic." "Unacademy unconditionally regrets the references to religious matters in a mock exam. The question papers were prepared by a third party and we have initiated action to tighten our internal review and quality process and ensure no misrepresentation on matters of religion creeps into our content. Any hurt or offence is deeply regretted," unacademy added. The question which went viral on social media said, 'A group of Muslim people were carrying out their rally on the occasion of Eid. They were chanting their slogans and were celebrating their festival when they were passing through the streets of a Hindu-dominated colony, the Hindus of the area started pelting stones and claimed that they outraged the religious feelings of Hindus. Is the claim correct?' Three options were given for the question.
