On the occasion of Teachers’ Day today I recall how the earlier generation was fed with lies, half-truths and plain untruths in their textbooks by Indira Feroze Khan during her terribly 15 long years of Aurangzeb-like rule.
My SOCIAL STUDIES teacher was Mrs Sharma when I was in 7th Std in Central School Trimulgherry, Hyderabad. She taught from the NCERT book and made us infer (falsely believe) that Aurangzeb was some sort of noble saint like Guru Tegh Bahadur or a Karmayogi. We were cheated and told to make 2 and 2 as 22.
Her teaching is still in my memory when she explained how Aurangzeb went to settle land disputes arising in his kingdom. “He would go personally to measure the land (were tapes available those days?) whenever a dispute arose and was brought to his notice and only when he settled the dispute peacefully and amicably did he feel happy,” was how Mrs Sharma taught us from the NCERT textbook.
COMMUNIST historians TRULY played havoc with NCERT by DISTORTING our culture, history and OUR WAY OF THINKING repeat OUR WAY OF THINKING because the Marxist/Leftist thugs who masqueraded as historians had completely whitewashed the ENTIRE Islamic rule in India and worse put the blame on Hindus for all the ills of India. AURANGZEB WAS LIFTED AND PLACED ON A PEDESTAL THAT WOULD HAVE PUT TO SHAME GAUTAMA BUDDHA.
I soon started thinking how NOBLE AND GREAT WAS AURANGZEB. Wasn’t he so concerned for aam admi welfare that he went personally to the field and settle the dispute as the NCERT book pointed out? I hope Markandey Katju reads this post of mine without ducking as he often tends to do for the sake of convenience.
I don’t think Mrs Sharma should be hanged for teaching us NONSENSE AND LIES because all she did was perform her duty, even if it was nasty dishonourable one.
Could she have told us in the class that AURANGZEB WAS A BRUTAL MONSTER walking on two legs WHO WAS BENT UPON UPROOTING HINDUISM THROUGH MURDER, LOOT AND RAPE AND CREATING A CLIMATE OF FEAR SO THAT CONVERTING WAS THE BEST OPTION TO SAVE ONESELF FROM THIS degrading and unendurable TORTURE?
Assuming she knew the truth about Aurangzeb could she have been brazen enough to reveal it? Those days COMMUNIST SECULARISTS ruled the roost and Indira Khan was RUNNING the nation like a tinpot dictator. There could have been a heavy price to pay for Mrs Sharma for her indiscretion which she wisely desisted from doing and from being blackballed by her biradari and COMMUNIST HISTORIANS.
Believe me had she spoken the truth it would have been very bad for Mrs Sharma after I had seen a few government officers shivering in their pants even to talk politics at home with their guests as government servant those days were treated as servants round the clock. Poor Mrs Sharma after all was only a social studies teacher.
SADLY that was how Muslim invasion of minds continued uninterrupted, an invasion which began during Prophet’s lifetime. It continued to haunt the innocent minds of independent India long after even the Mughal dynasty was laid to rest following its horrible death.
I AM SURE ONLY A FEW HAVE COME OUT OF THE MINDSET today AFTER GROWING IN AN ATMOSPHERE OF LIES, half-lies and plain untruths that was imposed on India’s susceptible mind all in the name of SECULARISM.
As a teacher Mrs Sharma was strait-laced and a terror among students. She drove her own car wearing a hard black sandals and her hair was ALWAYS dyed heavy black. Her face was hard, square and pugnacious. She looked enchanting of sorts with her black hair and spotless white sari. She was a typical Punjabi with an iron will. Yet as Fate would have it she taught lies about the BIGGEST TYRANT IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND, Aurangzeb.
Interestingly Mrs Sharma was none other than the mother of Rakesh Sharma, the FIRST INDIAN TO GO IN SPACE.
