An NCERT history textbook claims that ‘.. when temples were destroyed during war, grants were later issued for their repair… from the reigns of Shah Jahan and Aurangzeb’. When a person filed an RTI application questioning the sources for these claims, NCERT replied with ‘it has nothing to corroborate the claim as this information is not available on the files of the department’. This is not the first time that claims in NCERT textbooks have been found to be baseless.
Hindus took to Twitter to express their outrage against NCERT, who has indulged in fake glorification of jihadi invaders like Mughals while ignoring true Indian heroes and kings like Shivaji Maharaj, Maharana Pratap etc. More than 25,000 tweets were tweeted with the hashtag #NCERT_Fakes_History, which became one of the top 10 national trends in India on Twitter. The trend was on 3rd spot for few hours.
Here are some of the tweets from the trend :
The @NCERT has said that it has no evidence to prove that Mughal emperors had rebuilt temples destroyed in wars, even when it claims the same in its history textbook. It was revealed in an RTI application seeking evidence for the claim made in the textbook.#NCERT_Fakes_History pic.twitter.com/1RIBfrbCeM
