Of late, we hear a lot of new versions of history or rather, some historic events. These ‘historians’ discover the other side of certain well known events by picking up facts published in some obscure newspapers of the by gone days.
The quarrel between princely states or some communal uprisings which would have taken place during the Britishraj would get the status of freedom struggle.
Most of us know that our freedom struggle led by Gandhiji was absolutely free from violence and if there was a semblance of violence anywhere, Gandhiji would call of the on-going protests.
Knowing all these facts, some of our new historians would pick up some random reports of those days to prove that x or y was a freedom fighter who was neglected by Gandhiji or Nehruji… and so and so criticized Gandhiji for not supporting x or y (Who would have indulge in some unacceptable violent acts)
The younger generation should not be misled by these frequent dozes of distorted information.
