Replace history books written by Britishers : Subramanian Swamy

swamy_660_072113113459Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh) : BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Saturday advocated replacing history books written by Britishers in pre-Independence era, alleging they had “distorted” facts about India.

Addressing students at Banaras Hindu University’s Swatantrata Bhawan hall, he said the history books written by Indians should be promoted instead of the ones written by the Britishers. Swamy said that even in the course books of schools and colleges the facts about Hindu kings should be mentioned more than the Mughal emperors like Akbar, Aurangzeb and others.

He said there was a need for rebuilding temples in places where they were demolished and mosques built. The BJP leader also said that Sanskrit should be made compulsory in schools.

“Other than the mother tongue, Sanskrit should be made compulsory as the secondary language,” he said.

He also alleged that the Uttar Pradesh government is “forcibly” getting FIRs registered on conversion issue but there is no law regarding conversions in the state like the one in Madhya Pradesh, Odisha and Himachal Pradesh.

“Conversions will continue in other states also. This process has been going on for ages,” the BJP leader said.
