History To Be Set Right ?
Hopefully Right Thread !
Babur, Aurangzeb plunderers; history books will be rewritten: UP deputy CM

Describing Mughal emperors Babur and Aurangzeb as plunderers who never respected Indian values, deputy chief minister Dinesh Sharma on Tuesday said the history books of the state board will be rewritten by a panel of independent historians.The deputy chief minister, who holds the secondary and higher education portfolios, said Babur and Aurangzeb just harassed people and committed atrocities, while Bahadur Shah Zafar was a patriot who started the fight for independence, he said.
“That’s why Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited his (Bahadur Shah Zafar’s) tomb in Myanmar recently,” he said.
Claiming that icons like Guru Teg Bahadur, Maharana Pratap, Guru Govind Singh and Shivaji, were shown as dacoits in textbooks, he said such things would be changed. “We must learn to respect our ancestors. We do not carry the legacy of invaders but we carry the legacy of Lord Ram, Krishna, Guru Nanak, Mahavir, Gautam Buddha , Guru Govind Singh and Shivaji. We will have to study more about them, not about invaders,” he said.
o a question on the Taj Mahal, he said, “The Taj Mahal is an outstanding monument depicting Indian craftsmanship but Shahjahan amputated the hands of artisans who made the Taj. This is not Indian culture and shows he was barbaric. He created a feeling of panic among artisans and engineers who could not gather the courage to build more such monuments.”

Very misleading article. This is what is peddled to the westerners and they lap it up.

By rewriting history, Hindu nationalists aim to assert their dominance over India

India needs a new esthetic in its arts and iconography of religion/legends/myth. This is a fine example of the move away from 'Company art" of plumptitude.


However, I would not go so far as the lurid fantasy novels of christ returned with flaming sword as popular in some areas.
