These so called western scholars do not know the traditions and culture of Hindus and must realize that they will have to take birth in Bharat and learn Sanskrit right from their early childhood to get an understanding of the nuances and other aspects of Sanskrit.Have they ever experienced the Hindu Holocaust committed by the Portuguese,Dutch,French,British and the Muslim invaders before them?The Abrahamists may differ from each other in opinions,but their ultimate aim is to obliterate Hindus and they will always be united in this.It is their 'holier than thou' attitude towards black ,brown and other people that is the cause of many a genocide in the name of the Abrahimisms(religions of peace,love and communism).

AT has only superficial knowledge of sanskrit and unfit to pass judgment on Hindus.Only wants to whitewash the genocidal barbaric ,uncivilized rule of the British and the Muslim invaders.AT must look at the history of the Americas ,Australia and Africa where the white man's burden wiped out the indigenous people and many died due to slavery. Please do not glorify the Anglo American monsters as modern and civilized. The western people and Abrahimists are only mindless materialists and Karma will oneday make them pay for thier myriad sins against defenceless people.

Great interview. It makes me want to read Indian history (though learning Sanskrit is a bridge too far!). I hope historians do try to go out on limbs and add their wisdom (or folly-- you can't tell in advance) to the bare facts, and be scholars rather than mere university employees trying to add publications to their curriculum vitae.

Thank you so much. It was so long but interesting interview.. Yes, history in India is very distorted, people have mended it as per their taste and understanding. Especially look at the new syllabus taught in history books of India in schools. How demonised they have made to Mughals and British. Although both of them have ruled India but new history is over saturated. Especially Mughals are presented as demons for no reason. So, thank you AUDREY and Scroll as well. And hope to see more like this. Anyway I am planning to work on some similar project.
