New Delhi: Now following the footsteps of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is going to bring out the Hindu kings who are in the oblivion of history. Even if you get some mention, they are not given much importance. By discovering such kings, the BJP is planning to present them as national heroes. Like the RSS, the BJP also believes that there have been many Hindu kings who have been involved in the interest of the nation, but they remain anonymous due to the neglect of historians. Hindu culture and civilization were saved because of their might.
A two-day seminar was organized at Banaras Hindu University (BHU), where everyone was told about Skandagupta. Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who reached the seminar, told about Skandagupta Vikramaditya that there has been a lot of injustice in history with him. He did not get the fame he deserved. After this seminar, there was curiosity in the minds of people that after all who was Skandagupta, whose two-day seminar was organized on the basis of his life.
An RSS pracharak has said that ancient kings like Skandagupta, Suheldev, Hemchandra Vikramaditya, Krishnadeva Raya of Vijayanagar in southern Andhra Pradesh are little known. Puru (Porus) even defeated Alexander. Even after this, they did not get the respect they deserved. Similarly, the mention of Lakshya Badfukan of Assam is not found anywhere in history. All these rulers protected the Aryan culture. People like Veer Banda Bairagi fought for religion and culture, but today they are anonymous.
