Many people – a lot of pakistanis included – as this book depicts too… argue that the Bhagat Singh was “terrorist” too by todays definition…. but they forget one basic fact that he never used violence to kill any innocent! The bomb that was exploded in the Assembly was specifically MADE harmless so as to not hurt anybody! The only killing that Bhagat Singh was ever involved in was of Sanders – the guy linked to the death of Lala Lajpat Rai.
Such creepy communists backed authors should be booked and made to explain their nonsense!!
Parents of ICSE students have objected to the description of the revolutionary activities of freedom fighters Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev as ‘terrorism’ in the latest edition of Standard X text book for history.
Though the chapter that describes their disagreement with Mahatma Gandhi’s non-violent struggle does call them martyrs, parents are angry with the chapter’s title — Revival of Terrorism — Martyrdom of Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev.
One of the parents said he has taken up the matter with the school, in this case Jamnabai Narsee in Juhu. “Freedom fighters and terrorists are two different things. I feel the school should not use this version of history. The title is objectionable,” he said.
The book Total History and Civics is published by a Delhi-based publisher, Morning Star. read more
