Amit Shah urges Indian historians to resurrect the past's splendour

New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday urged historians throughout the country to revive the glory of the past for the sake of the present, saying that doing so will aid in the construction of a bright future.

The Home Minister made the appeal at the launch of a book titled "Maharanas: A Thousand Year War For Dharma," written by Omendra Ratnu, an ENT surgeon who has a deep interest in Rajasthan's history and has written several articles on the subject.

Wishing the author luck in writing the book, which claims to reveal the truth about India's greatest Dynasty, the 'Sisodias of Mewad,' who fought invaders nonstop for 1,000 years and refused to surrender even when their kingdom was encircled by enemies on all sides, the Home Minister also advised him to write a 'Sandarbh Granth' about similar struggles that occurred across the country and urged all historians in the country to dig out India's.

"From this dias, I want to convey to every one of my country's brothers and sisters who are writing history that the task of history is to resurrect the splendour of the past for the sake of the present. I am confident that resurrecting the glory of the past for the sake of the present will aid in the construction of a bright future, Shah said.

The book depicts the glory of the Maharanas of Mewar and the heroic fighters of the Sisodia family who sacrificed their lives and many other things to safeguard the kingdom from invaders, he said.
