When asked about Home Minister Amit Shah’s comments that it’s time to re-examine history books because historians have focused exclusively on the Mughals so far, neglecting other historic civilizations, he answered, “History is what it is; how can anyone change it?”

“Will you then alter history?” I’m not sure how one can change it. “History is history,” When a reporter asked what he thought of Mr Shah’s proposition, he laughed.

Language is a different issue, but you can’t change the fundamental history, he said when prodded by the Home Minister’s insistence that Mughals have been given excessively more importance in history books.

Mr Shah recently urged historians in the country to revive the glory of the past for the sake of the present, claiming that doing so will aid in the construction of a bright future.

Most of the historians in India have given prominence to recording the history of the Mughals only, ignoring the glorious rules of many empires like the Pandyas, Cholas, Mauryas, Guptas, and Ahoms, Mr Shah said at a recent book launch.

In what was seen as another strong message to ally BJP, Nitish Kumar recently stated that there was “no need” for an anti-conversion law in the state where the government was “alert” and members of different religious communities lived in peace.

Even though the BJP has now agreed to participate in the caste census, Nitish Kumar faced stiff opposition from its alliance over the issue.

BJP leaders, including some ministers in the cabinet, have been alleging that many “Rohingyas” and “Bangladeshis” have slipped into Bihar and care must be taken not to legitimise their stay by including them in the state-level headcount of castes.
