New Delhi: BJP National President Amit Shah on Wednesday said that Jan Sangh founder Shyama Prasad Mukherjee never got the due place in history which he deserved.
Speaking at an exhibition titled 'Shyama Prasad Mukherjee-A Selfless Patriot' at Nehru Memorial Museum, Shah said: "If anyone writes the history of India impartially and neutrally then he (Shyama Prasad) will find an important place. But he didn't find the place in history which he deserved."
He further said that its the "responsibility of the historians to analyse the stature of a person on the basis of the work done by him for the country.
"Earlier the British and later the Leftist historians twisted the history of the country which is an inexcusable crime," Shah said.
Attacking the Congress for the Partition, Shah said: "No country should be divided on the basis of religion, but the Congress accepted the Partition on the basis of religion."
Highlighting the contribution of Shyama Prasad, the BJP president said: "If today Jammu and Kashmir and Bengal are an integral part of India then its all due to him, whose foundation were laid down by his sacrifices."
