Dear Friends,

Subject: Urgent Need To Rewrite Indian History—Dr. Subramnian Swamy

Many of you would recall, we too had written to the present HRD minister on the subject some time back. Indeed, the need to revise history books, especially at the junior level, approved by the dominating Marxist group in the NCERT, is a crying need to save the young impressionable minds from getting further polluted.

This has been beautifully expressed by Dr, Subramanian Swamy in the form of answering some charges levelled against him. We felt it was worth sharing with you. The details are in the attached mail.

Though pretty well- known, a very significant point made by Swamy refers to the quirk of history how Nehru came to be the first Prime Minister of Independent India even in the face of the settled fact of Sardar Patel having been chosen for the post by 15-1 votes from the State PCCs when Gandhi took a vote. Yet, at Nehru’s child-like insistence, Gandhi forced Sardar Patel to withdraw in favour of Nehru. The history of post- independent India, the history of India as such, would have been totally different had this peaceful coup was not organised.

And, we are totally with Swamy that the role of Nehru in the annals of history will certainly require re-evaluation. The good news is that the process is on. And, we may soon find some unusual but highly well documented and researched study on this probably over-rated freedom fighter.

Friends, such estimates at times smack of personal predilections. We are not above that. So, we shall like to leave it at that.


Your sevak,

D.C. Nath

(Former Spl. Director, IB)
