Dr. Subramanian Swamy, burning books won't fix problems with our history texts

When Dr. Subramanian Swamy says books by Nehruvian historians should be burned he forgets that burning and banning books can never be the answer. You have to attack not people but their intellectual claims and you do that by argument and scholarship not a matchstick. #history #ChangeTheNow #Subramanian Swamy #InMyOpinion #Hinduism #Wendy Doniger #Romila Thapar #Bipan Chandra

Both BJP and RSS have denied working in tandem since the polls ended, despite many expressing fear that their alleged agenda of rewriting Indian history would eventually trickle into school syllabi. The whispers of the alleged influence of the RSS on the Modi sarkar grew to a point that the Hindu outfit's chief spokesperson had to clarify recently that the organisation wasn't "controlling" the Modi goverment. #history #MM Joshi #Narendra Modi #CriticalPoint #Smriti Irani #RSS #school #Modi Govt #Sangh #Hindu texts #Saffronisation of Education #Saffronisation #Rewriting History
