Students Taught Lies
It is a pity that those who teach history in schools and colleges and are, therefore, falsely believed to be historians by a doting public have kept the public in the dark about the false and abusive Muslim chronicles. Indian history taught in our schools and colleges are all based on myths and concoctions written by those who call Hindus robbers and scoundrels in Hindu land. Are we going to tolerate this?
Questions set in different examinations make students rapturously describe the golden age of Shahjahan, the revenue system of Akbar, the reforms of Sher Shah and the madhouse economics of a Mohammed Tughlak. Students are asked to lustily describe every battle in which Hindus suffered a set-back due to Muslim treachery, terror and horror or some fortuitous circumstance. They completely bypass Shivaji, Rana Pratap, Prithvi Raj, Guru Govind Singh and others. Do they wish to tell the public that Muslim marauders loved the Hindu public more than a Pratap, Shivaji, Prithvi Raj or Guru Govind Singh? Are we to believe that the Muslim sultans who were stark illiterates, inveterate drunkards, incorrigible drug-addicts and fornication- prone degenerates engaged in endless manslaughter and temple- felling orgies, spent all their wealth, time and energy in building serais, sinking wells, constructing roads, erecting buildings and evolving flawless administrative systems? This is the height of falsehood which is being perpetuated in our schools and universities. The results are for all to see.
Let me tell them both, who teach and learn history, that Shahjahan's regime was no golden period because throughout his reign he persecuted 99% of the population, who were Hindus. Their temples were demolished, they were trampled to death en masse under elephants' feet for refusing to become Muslims. Can we call such a period in which the majority lived in terror, a golden age?
The much vaunted revenue system of Akbar was nothing but a systematic way of squeezing money out of people. People were mercilessly flogged on road squares to pay Akbar's usurious taxes while some had to sell their wives and children to meet Akbar's cruel levies. Is this a revenue administration to be proud of?
To attribute high economic objectives to Mohammed Tughlak'a drunken despotism, fanatic obstinacy and tyranny is sheer madness! About Sher Shah, his own admission to Mallu Khan that he spent a period of apprenticeship with a gang of robbers, is enough to explain his bestial career. Such is the invidious record of every Muslim ruler in India.
In Indian academic curriculum medieval history is heavily loaded with Muslim names. In actual examination practice, questions are rarely set on any medieval Hindu king. It is all sickeningly Muslim...Muslim and Muslim from beginning to end in the predominantly Hindu land of Bharat. This may have been all right during foreign rule, a rule based on the divide and rule policy of the wily British, but how can we tolerate that same unreal and make-believe atmosphere to pervade a matter-of-fact and down-to-earth subject like history? This rot has to be stopped.
Frustrated in his attempt to capture Gwalior, which was under the control of Hindu Malik Deo, son of Basil, Altmash returned to Delhi in 1233 A.D. A year later he marched against Bhilsa city and fort near Bhopal. Minhaj-us-Siraj tells us: "There was a temple there which was three hundred years in building!" Thanks to Altmash and his devils, that ancient city - a proud show-piece of ancient world, was reduced to gaping ruins.
