The book reveals how these historians have used various techniques and tactics to manipulate sources, evidence, and data to suit their ideological and political agenda. The book also shows how these historians have aligned themselves with certain parties, movements, and groups that benefit from their historical narratives. The book also examines the consequences of the historical fraud perpetrated by these historians for India's cultural heritage, national unity, and social harmony. Arun Shourie is a journalist, author, politician, and activist who has written extensively on various topics such as politics, economics, religion, philosophy, and history. He is known for his investigative reporting, critical analysis, and outspoken views on various issues. He has been a minister in the Indian government, a member of parliament, an editor of a leading newspaper, and a recipient of several awards and honors. He is also a scholar of Buddhism and Hinduism who has studied the original texts and scriptures of these religions. In this book, Shourie challenges some of the prominent historians of India who have been regarded as authorities on Indian history by many academics, students, media outlets, and public figures. He questions their credibility, integrity, and objectivity as historians who claim to present a scientific and secular account of India's past. He exposes their hidden agenda, motives, and interests that influence their interpretation and presentation of historical facts. He also exposes their hypocrisy, dishonesty, and malpractice as scholars who misuse their position and power to propagate their views and suppress dissenting voices. ## The Technology of Eminent Historians Shourie begins his book by explaining how some eminent historians have developed a technology or a method of manipulating sources, evidence, and data to suit their agenda. He shows how they use various techniques such as selective quotation, fabrication, suppression, and misinterpretation of facts to create a distorted picture of India's history that serves their ideological and political purposes. For example, he shows how some eminent historians have quoted selectively from ancient texts such as Vedas, Puranas, and Epics to portray them as sources of oppression, violence, and superstition. He shows how they have fabricated evidence or invented incidents that never happened in history to support their claims or accusations. He shows how they have suppressed or ignored evidence or facts that contradict or challenge their views or hypotheses. He shows how they have misinterpreted or twisted evidence or facts to fit their preconceived notions or theories. Shourie also shows how some eminent historians have used their academic institutions, journals, textbooks, and media to propagate their views and influence public opinion. He shows how they have formed a network or a clique of like-minded historians who support and endorse each other's work and views. He shows how they have controlled or dominated the academic bodies, committees, and councils that decide the curriculum, syllabus, and textbooks of history for schools and colleges. He shows how they have influenced or manipulated the media outlets, publishers, and reviewers who disseminate and popularize their books and articles. ## The Line of Eminent Historians Shourie then proceeds to explain the line or the ideology and politics of some eminent historians who have been following a certain agenda or a program in their historical writing. He shows how they have aligned themselves with certain parties, movements, and groups that benefit from their historical narratives. He shows how they have adopted or supported a particular worldview or perspective that shapes their understanding and interpretation of India's history. For example, he shows how some eminent historians have been influenced by or sympathetic to Marxism, Communism, or Socialism as a political ideology or a social movement. He shows how they have applied or imposed a Marxist framework or a class analysis to Indian history that reduces it to a struggle between the oppressed and the oppressor. He shows how they have portrayed India as a feudal, backward, and stagnant society that was exploited and oppressed by the Brahmins, the upper castes, the Hindus, and the foreign invaders. He also shows how some eminent historians have been influenced by or sympathetic to Secularism, Liberalism, or Multiculturalism as a political ideology or a social movement. He shows how they have applied or imposed a secular framework or a communal analysis to Indian history that reduces it to a conflict between the minorities and the majority. He shows how they have portrayed India as a pluralistic, diverse, and tolerant society that was enriched and enlightened by the Muslims, the Christians, the British, and the modernizers. Shourie also shows how some eminent historians have attacked and discredited their critics and opponents who challenge their version of history. He shows how they have used various tactics such as ad hominem attacks, name-calling, labeling, slander, and defamation to malign and vilify their adversaries. He shows how they have accused them of being communal, communalist, communal-fascist, saffron, Hindutva, Hindu fundamentalist, Hindu nationalist, Hindu chauvinist, etc. He shows how they have tried to delegitimize and marginalize them as non-historians, pseudo-historians, amateur historians, etc. ## The Fraud of Eminent Historians Shourie finally concludes his book by explaining the fraud or the consequences of the historical distortions and biases perpetrated by some eminent historians for India's cultural heritage, national unity, and social harmony. He shows how their historical narratives have affected the understanding and appreciation of India's rich and diverse cultural heritage that spans thousands of years and encompasses various civilizations, religions, languages, arts, sciences, philosophies, etc. He shows how their historical narratives have undermined the unity and integrity of India as a nation and a civilization that has survived and thrived despite various invasions, occupations, partitions, migrations, etc. He shows how their historical narratives have threatened the social harmony and peace of India as a society that has accommodated and assimilated various cultures, communities, sects, castes, etc. For example, he shows how some eminent historians have denigrated or devalued the ancient Indian civilization and culture that gave birth to some of the most profound and original contributions to human civilization such as Vedas, Upanishads, Yoga, Ayurveda, Sanskrit, etc. He shows how they have ignored or dismissed the achievements and innovations of ancient Indian science, mathematics, astronomy, medicine, architecture, etc. He shows how they have distorted or misrepresented the role and status of women, lower castes, tribals, etc in ancient Indian society. He also shows how some eminent historians have glorified or exaggerated the medieval Islamic civilization and culture that invaded and occupied India for several centuries. He shows how they have whitewashed or minimized the atrocities and destruction committed by the Muslim rulers and invaders against the native Indians such as massacres, conversions, demolitions, lootings, etc. He shows how they have justified or rationalized the motives and actions of the Muslim rulers and invaders as benevolent, progressive, reformist, etc. He shows how they have distorted or misrepresented the role and status of Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, etc in medieval Indian society. He also shows how some eminent historians have praised or overestimated the modern British civilization and culture that colonized and ruled India for almost two centuries. He shows how they have whitewashed or minimized exploitation and oppression inflicted by the British rulers and colonizers against the native Indians such as famines, taxation, plunder, etc. He shows how they have justified or rationalized the motives and actions of the British rulers and colonizers as civilizing, modernizing, educating, etc. He shows how they have distorted or misrepresented the role and status of Indians, nationalists, freedom fighters, etc in modern Indian society. ## Conclusion Shourie concludes his book by summarizing his main arguments and findings.
