Need to “correct” India’s distorted history: Venkaiah Naidu

PUNE: There is a need to “correct” Indian history, distorted by colonial rulers, Vice President Venkaiah Naidu said here on Thursday.
Speaking at the Punyabhushan award presentation ceremony, Naidu asked historians, archaeologists, linguists and other scholars in the country to unite in order to re-create Indias real history before the world.
“There is a tremendous potential to re-construct and re-correct Indian history, whose distorted forms were presented by colonial rulers,” he said.
“There are many great names like Shivaji Maharaj, Shankaracharya, Rani Lakshmibai and more, whose contributions are not much heard of. We need to re-discover ourselves and present the real history of India to the world,” Naidu said. (AGENCIES)
