Letter Published in The National UAE on 18 March 18Should we keep an open mind about India’s history project?

I write regarding Samanth Subramanian’s recent reporting on Indian historians accusing their government of manipulating research (India government accused of promoting prejudiced version of country’s past, March 12).

Thanks to historians, India’s past is very well documented and so too are the lives of those Indian leaders who have contributed to the country’s development.

The idea of the government creating a panel to preference a particular culture for their own agenda is troubling, although it may be wise to keep an open mind about this development to see what it finds.
