Swamy attacks Nehru for "distorted" history books

New Delhi, May 15 (UNI) Senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy today sought to demolish the way
history was written during the Congress period and said it was now time for course correction.
He said that in 1967, he had come out with some chronology of history of the country based on vedic
evidence and had sent them to the Indian History Congress but was rejected by historian Romila
Thapar.
The BJP leader also made frequent attacks on former Prime Ministers Pt Jawahar Lal Nehru and
Manmohan Singh and Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
While speaking at the launch of the book 'Brainwashed Republic' authoured by Neeraj Atri and
Munieshwer A Sagar here today, Mr Swamy said it was high time that misconception spread about India
in the NCERT books were removed and correct facts put in place so the the future is aware about the
rich glory of the country.
He also praised the the new scholars for coming up correct facts about the country.
Stating that India was one from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and Jamnagar to Dibrugarh Mr Swamy said,
"We are not Aryans or Dravidians, the DNA of all Indians is same".
Mr Swamy said, "People across the world term India as a Hindu nation but we feel ashamed to call
ourselves a Hindu nation".
He said Sanskrit was respected in the world but in India people were feeling shy to read Sanskrit and
urged the parents to hire tutors for their children to learn Sanskrit so that they also feel proud about
the language.
Regarding the Kashmir situation, Mr Swamy said that there was no issue in Jammu, Ladakh and Upper Kashmir region but was only in the Kashmir Valley.
To solve the issue Mehbooba Mufti was made the Chief Minister but even she could not manage the situation.
Sharing the insights from the book, Neeraj Atri said, “Facts are the guiding light for the book and not any ideology. The book exposes the blatant manner in which democratic institutions are being used to subvert the thought process of Indians. It exposes how this academic subversion sows the seeds of social unrest among various groups on the basis of linguistic, regional and caste identities.”
Emphasising the importance of a fact based history devoid of any ideological padding, Mr Sagar said, “Our fellow citizens have every right to know what lies are being peddled in name of history. We hope that bringing these facts to public domain will help in eradicating these distortions from Indian history. It is high time that the decision makers take preventive and corrective measures to avoid the damage that this subversion can lead to.”
Mr Sagar further said, the book was the result of more than six years of in depth research. They had earlier applied for detailed information regarding the current history text books from the NCERT under the RTI Act (Right to Information Act).
Later, they under the aegis of NCHRCS, had filed a writ petition in the Punjab & Haryana High Court and pointed-out over 182 anomalies and unsubstantiated statements and biases in the NCERT history text books of Class VI to XII.
On the directions of the Court NCHR submitted a detailed list along with the original first-hand sources to “National Centre for Educational Research and Training” so as to enable them to correct the History text books.
