‘ER’ in the name NCERT is the acronym for educational research. But, NCERT writers seem to be totally oblivious of research abilities. To make their political masters happy, they have filled Indian school books with lies after lies, poisoning the minds of scores of gullible children. The Marxist academicians combined with Islamist sympathizers, tried to paint a distorted and dirty picture of India, so that future generations could forgive their invaders.
Distorting school history books – a method to teach Hindus to hate their own identity
Turning history textbooks into their ideological poisoned battlegrounds, has been the main strategy of Marxist historians. The idea is simple, if you can set up a young developing brain to hate its own past, you can easily destroy a civilisation within a span of two generations. The historians have actually been doing it, by following these simple strategies:
- They have been whitewashing Mughals’ tyranny by presenting them as soft and some kind of art-loving rulers.
- They have been portraying the Hindu society as an unhappy and extremely unequal society corrupted by the caste system.
- The historians have left no stone unturned in justifying the demolition of mandirs.
- Invaders like Delhi Sultanate, Tughlaqs, Mughals, etc., have been described in NCERT books as able administrators, while downplaying the role of Cholas, Guptas, Ahoms, and other native dynasties of India.
- Presenting Muslim invaders as romantic poets and writers, the NCERT has been hiding how the Muslim ‘rulers’ used to rape women in masses and kept them as their slaves.
Few significant instances of Marxist distorians changing historical facts to suit their narratives
In his book ‘Brainwashed Republic’, author Neeraj Atri describes how NCERT history books written by Marxists like Romila Thapar and RS Sharma have presented a distorted view of Hindus’ history. These distortions are notable, as the distorted parts have been suited to keep the Islamic and Christian lobby happy.
- Tughlaqs and Khiljis were portrayed as emancipators of ‘low and baseborn’
In a gross attempt to portray Khilijis and Tughlaqs as ‘social reformers’, NCERT book on page 38 of class 7 history book presents security guards and servants of the harem as an emancipated group.
The truth is however totally different. These invaders used to keep women in harems to use them as sex slaves. They used to treat them as commodities and wanted to keep them ‘fresh’ for their use only; that’s why appointing men as security guards for the harem was counterproductive. So, the pre-pubescent boys were kidnapped, castrated and then kept as prisoners of war, making them eunuchs. These eunuchs were then trained to be appointed as security guards.
These eunuchs have been called ‘low and baseborn’ by NCERT scholars, and their appointment as security guards has been shown as an upliftment. In reality, they were normal children castrated by the Muslim tyrants.
- Equating slavery with the caste system
On page 117 of class 8 history book, NCERT cited Jyotirao Phule’s book ‘Gulamgiri’ to establish a link between the conditions of ‘lower’ castes in India and black slaves in America.
Citing travelers like Magasthenes in 300BC, Hieun Tsang in the 7th century, Al-Beruni in the 11th century, Marco Polo in the 13th century, Ibn Battuta in the 14th century and Bernier in the 17th century, Neeraj Atri proves that there was no slavery of so-called ‘lower’ castes in India. Furthermore, Atri castigates the NCERT writers for not mentioning Britishers as the catalysts of caste conflicts in India.
- Depicting Gonds and Ahoms as Non-Hindus
NCERT authors have left no stone unturned in presenting indigenous tribals as non-Hindus. On page number 98 of class 7 history book, the writers tried to portray Gonds as different groups from Hindus.
However, Neeraj Atri refutes this misrepresentation by citing the census of 1901. In that census, the British officers had described animistic traditions of tribal groups like Bhils and Gonds as being inherently connected to Vedas. Similarly, on page number 92 of the same book, Hindus and Ahoms are presented as separate groups.
However, other than NCERT books, there is no historical evidence of Ahoms ever being out of Hinduism’s fold.
These attempts of projecting tribal groups as non-Hindus seem to gain traction, due to the influence of Marxist historians heavily biased in favour of Christian and Islamic conversions.
- Social reformers and selective quoting
Social reformers like Swami Dayanand, Swami Vivekananda, and even Bhimrao Ambedkar, have been provided their space in the NCERT books, but with a caveat.
These reformers diverge from each other, but have various conversion points, especially in reference to the Aryan invasion theory. Almost everyone has expressed how hollow and non-scientific the Aryan invasion theory really is. But, NCERT textbooks did not mention any of these views on the Aryan invasion theory. Instead, it went on to quote only writers such as Jyotirao Phule, who have spoken in favour of the now-tainted Aryan invasion theory. In fact, Phule’s constantly erroneous opinions have been presented as facts by the Marxist distorians.
- Misrepresenting the Indic tradition
On page 23 of class 12 history book, the authors fail to recognise that different names of God do not mean that they are different in existence. The transmutation of God into different forms seems to be an alien concept to the writers, who view religion through the lens of Christian and Islamic concepts of God.
Citing Swami Dayanand’s work on the definition of God, the author then elaborates the meaning of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva and describes how they all are same forms of the same supreme being.
- Glorifying the barbaric Sharia
On page 149 of class 12 history book, Sharia has been misrepresented as a law that deals with the governance of the Muslim community only.
However, this is another attempt to present Sharia as a humanitarian law. The fact however, is that Sharia does not only deal with Muslims – it deals with non-Muslims as well. In fact, the Sharia calls them Kafirs, who deserve to get killed. Moreover, the historians who left no stone unturned in demonizing Brahmins, do not refer to Sharia’s interpretation of Hindus at all. Most of the Ulamas and Sufis believe that according to Sharia, Hindus deserve to get killed, while Jews and Christians can survive, only if they pay jizya tax.
- Describing Bigots as heroes
The NCERT books describe bigots like Ibn Battuta as globetrotters and belonging to respectable families with a scholastic education. Ibn Battuta’s travel to Muhammad Tughlaq’s court has been described as being influenced by Tughlaq’s reputation as an admirer for art.
Historically, Muhammad Tughlaq was a total bigot, who imposed a Jizya tax on non-Muslims and rejoiced in their conversion to Islam. Moreover, Ibn Battuta, a ‘scholar’ for NCERT writers, was a volunteer for an armed raid which he described as ‘ghazwah‘, in his book titled ‘Rihla’. In his memoir, Battuta proudly proclaims leading a ghazwah against kafirs.

- Idolisation of a tyrant as an able administrator
The Muslim appeasement policy of NCERT history book writers went to such an extent that they went on to describe the genocidal Alauddin Khalji as an able administrator and inflation controller, in their class 7 books.
Nothing could be farther from the truth, as his own chroniclers described him as a tyrant who never hesitated to slaughter, burn and restrict the privileges of the army, or to reduce the allowances of his servants. Khalji shed more innocent blood than any Pharaoh was ever guilty of. In reality, Alauddin Khalji can best be described as a savage, who should be mentioned in our history books as a brutal tyrant who extended the Islamic ‘loot legacy’ to south India .
Social engineering through history books
The social engineering to gaslight Hindus into the guilt of crimes committed by Muslim invaders, has been going for more than 60 years. This has led to a large section of upper middle class Hindus catching the Stockholm syndrome, as they have grown up reading these distorted history books. Thousands of such references are being taught to our kids. It’s not a surprise that when these kids grow up reading these books, they tend to fall in love with Mughals and their ‘culture’. In fact, Mughal foods are a big part of fancy cuisines and similarly, Mughal and Pathani styles of clothing have been promoted by Bollywood as some kind of a fashion statement. These are classic cases of Stockholm syndrome.

In the past, various controversies have led to changes in the syllabi of NCERT textbooks. The last such major change was done by Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee, in 2002. But, the Muslim-appeasing Congress government later reversed the change in syllabi in 2004, and again parroted the same Marxist stupidity in schools. Recently, the Narendra Modi government has taken several steps towards reforming the NCERT curriculum. But, to make a significant change towards making Hindus aware of their own glorious past, a nationwide intellectual movement and a complete overhaul of Indian education in favour of the Vedic style of education should be the way forward.
