I have seen some nationalistic indians on this forum and other forums posting absurbs claims on history. They claim stuff like that afghanistan, iran etc.. was part of bharat and stuff like Kaaba is a hindu temple or that Taj Mahal is a hindu temple, these are just some of the claims. My question is why do these people try to spread false history amoung themselves and thier fellow countrymen. This kind of stuff has no factual basis at all and it is very dangrous thing that has and can result in violence, especailly among the muslim, hindu population in india.
 
I was talking to my hindu friends who are well educated but yet still believe in this kind of stuff because from day 1 they have been thought stuff like this.

Betaab, they have a right to be nationalistic Indians as much as I have the right to be a nationalistic Pakistani. As long as the forum rules are obeyed and discussion remains civil and this goes for all, you can discuss the thing and present your otherwise theories to your hearts content. Way to counter them is true the pen of truth, not the mods axe.

well to tell u the true, it doesn't really matter what we discuss in the forums as it wont effect anything. But i am actually talking about organizations that spread this kind of false history. In places like Gujarat in india there are these kinds of organizations and these kind of things result in violence.

Well if a member is posting hate material then its a different matter, then point it out to the mods in a PM.

I think betaab is questioning Indian nationalism as a phenomenon for intellectual discussion.

The world is full of people with nonsensical ideas. Nonsense isn't necessarily harmful: the problems only start when people begin discriminating and persecuting on the basis of those nonsensical ideas.
 
While it is to me obviously and wildly untrue, the idea that ancient Egyptians were Hindus doesn't seem any more harmful than the idea that the world was created in 4004 BC or that the earth is flat or that Communism will lead to utopia.
