    Eminent Historians: Their Technology, Their Line, Their Fraud by Arun Shourie, offers an authoritative exposé on the NCERT controversy. The author attacks Marxist historiography in India and showcases how historians represent facts to suit their own agenda. Eminent Historians examines why the greatest names in historiography do this and why the Government goes out of its way to support them.

    Summary of the Book

    Indian history is dotted with events such as Mahmud of Ghazni's invasion and Aurangazeb's massacre of Hindus. Yet why is it that school children do not learn much of these stories and focus on the trade that Mahmud brought to India, a consequence that he never intended? Why is it that Aurangzeb is showcased as a tolerant emperor when he ordered the beheading of several Hindu scholars? Why does the Indian Government allow this falsified view to permeate the very schools and colleges that are supposed to advance the study of history? Muslim rule is not to be criticized, the immoral destruction of temples in the name of the advancement of Islam is never to be discussed. These orders were put forth by a circular issued by the West Bengal government in 1989 and have dictated what school children must learn. Mr. Shourie tells the readers that this Marxist method of whitewashing history is a historiographic sin and that its only result is a blinded view of reality. Criticizing eminent historians of the day, he questions their world view and asks why is that a Soviet work on Indian history is more truthful and objective than several of our own.

    Must read to remove the blinds holding back true Indian History

    Must read to remove the blinds holding back true Indian History . It exposes the way in which the truth about India was deliberately distorted by a cult of communist historians inorder to destroy India's ancient heritage and culture . Unfortunately till now nobody had exposed them until Arun Shourie wrote this book .

    Eminent Historians - a must read book for all Indians

    This book shows how a cabal of Marxist historians with collusion of the ruling elite have hijacked key institutions which has allowed them to control the narrative and national discourse. During their reign people like Romila Thapar and Irfan Habib have distorted out history, presented brutal Islamic invaders as egalitarian and basically blamed Hindu's. Like termites these historians have hollowed out our institutions. I have bought copies to gift to friends and family.

    Solid Job

    Thanks to Mr. Shourie for his meticulous research and knife edge arguments, the book was a mere delight to read. Those who want to know how our so called rational and scientific historians (actually prejudiced apparatchiks) systematically embedded half-truths and false stories to bury the glory of India with a monolithic purpose to denigrate Hinduism and push a past that is far from the reality. The result of their motivated propaganda is that we Indians only know Mughal and Sultanate history...

    One of the Masterpiece by Arun Shourie - Must read book for all which was earlier Unofficially banned by UPA Govt fearing people reaction

    I would like to share one recommendation on this book which I liked on Goodreads :

    By : Anant Singh rated it 5 of 5 stars
    Shelves: indian-non-fiction

    I feel that Mr. Shourie should have been given somehting like BHARAT RATNA for this piece of work , but as its not in my hand i can just say thanks to Mr. Shourie . Classic work and an eye opener. Some points which touched me :

    1. Reference to the work of ICHR which is like hell and there books are like dust.
    2. The on going tampering of Indi...
