How Farhan Akhtar voiced the ordeal of the poor apes

On Friday, the minister of state for Human Resource Development Satyapal Singh claimed Darwin’s theory of evolution is “scientifically wrong”. He argued that since no one saw “an ape turning into a man”, modern biology textbooks should be changed to rectify the information. This is not the first time that any high-ranking members of the Bharatiya Janata Party have struggled to accept scientific facts as fact. Last year, around this time, the Rajasthan Education Minister Vasudev Devnani said that cows are the only animals that inhale and exhale oxygen as per some 'research magazine'.
