Difficult to accept Markandey Katju's remarks on Pakistan: RSS ideologue
The theory of Aryan invasion floated by the imperialist historians in pursuance of their 'Divide and Rule' policy had been totally rejected by various researchers, he said.
It is true that India is a land of diversity but it is not true that the diversity is due to waves of immigration. It is a false reading of history, the Sangh ideologue said.
Objecting to justice Katju's view that it was Akbar and Nehru who deserved credit for India's unity, Parameswaran said centuries before Akbar was born, it was the Sankaracharya who established four Mutts in the four corners of India and demonstrated that culturally and spiritually India is one.
Mahatma Gandhi also in his book 'Hind Swaraj' had stated the practice of pilgrimage of people from one part of the country to the other was instituted by our ancestors in order to strengthen and preserve the unity of India.
Swami Vivekananda was the personification of India's unity and it was he who inspired even Gandhiji and Nehru to fight for India`s freedom.
It is unfortunate that a person of the standing and understanding of Justice Katju should have turned a blind eye to these facts, he added.
