History books would be rewritten during the Modi regime said senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and head of strategy action committee Subramanium Swamy during his oration on ‘Me and my India’ at Sant Gadge auditorium on Thursday.

Swamy further said new history books would be introduced in the curriculum, as Indians were ‘fed up’ with those written by Nehruvian historians. He also rubbished the Aryan and Dravidian theory, which caused a divide between south and north India. He said that the theory was propagated to divide the people of India.

He also lashed at DMK chief Karunanidhi and Congress president Sonia Gandhi for launching the Setu Samudram project as the former was ‘oppposed’ to the idea of Ram being an Aryan. Taking his criticism further, Swamy said the present government is all set to scrap the project.

“Congress denied glory to Indians, the Kingdom of Vijay Nagaram was bigger than that of Moghuls but it doesn’t find any mention in text books. So questions have been raised, there has been absurd and racist misrepresentation of Indian history in the past, which would not be allowed further,” he added.
