New Delhi, Jan 10: In a bizarre revelation, Rajasthan Education Minister Vasudev Devnani who had claimed that cows exhale oxygen, has now claimed that Brahmagupta II had discovered the Law of Gravitation 1,000 years before Issac Newton.
While addressing the 72nd foundation day celebrations of the University of Rajasthan on Monday, Devnani came up with this remark.
“Since the childhood, we have studied that Newton came up with the law of gravitation, But if we delve deeper, we’ll find that it was Brahmagupta II who came up with the law of gravitation 1,000 years before that”, he said.
Why don’t we include this fact in the curriculum?” the minister asked.
However, this is not the first time Devnani who holds the education ministry in the Vasundhara Raje government, has been in the news for his claims.
As earlier, in last January he stated that cow is the only animal that inhales as well as exhales oxygen.
While speaking at the Hingonia Goshala, an event organised by the Akshay Patra foundation, he said “Gai ekmatra prani hai jo oxygen grahan karta hai, aur oxygen hi chhodta hai (the cow is the only animal that takes in oxygen and also releases oxygen)”.
