Revisiting History must not take communal overtunes.Everyone is ware that the present Government under NDA wants to rewrite history which was consciously written in a particular way by Marxist historians. Our history has been long influenced by economic basis and hence the need to revise the same can be understood. But this cannot take communal overtones. Certifying some as invaders and others as protectors of Indian culture need to be prohibited. Mongols are as much Indian as Marathas. Just because Babur came from a part of India which is called Afghanisntan today does not mean he is an outsider. For me I take same pride in saying Shivaji is victorious as same of Babur battles. Akbar and Ashoka both are Emporers of repute. I must glorify Taj Mahal as and much I glorify the Magnificent Brihadishwara temple at Tanjore. In words of Great Hindu leader Tilak "For me everyone is Indian including Hindus, Muslims, British people until they live in this country and contribute to its civilization".
Recent speech by a UP MLA to take Taj mahal away from list of tourist destination is unwarranted.
