Some alleged journalist I'm told was casting malicious aspersions on aspects related to The Life of Barrister Savarkar's authorship that I quote in my book. After Savarkar's release from Ratnagiri in 1937 Bombay Pradesh Congress Committee & Barrister Jamnadas Mehta sought msgs(1)
From several leaders of the time to felicitate Savarkar in a public gathering. These messages were compiled by them & published in Marathi newspaper Lokmanya of 27 June 1937. Following are msgs AS IS in Lokmanya
श्री विनायकराव सावरकर ह्यांचे सुस्वागत आणि सन्मान असो (Nehru)(2)
"Welcome & respects to Shri Vinayakrao Savarkar" (Nehru).

Subhas Bose:
पुन्हा पूर्ण स्वतंत्र होऊन परत येत असलेल्या बॅरिस्टर सावरकरांचे सुस्वागत असो मला अशी आशा आहे की ते काँग्रेसला मिळून स्वातंत्र्यप्राप्तीच्या चळवळीला जोर आणतील त्यांच्यापुढे उज्ज्वल भविष्यकाळ आहे (3)

In this discussion yday with @sardesairajdeep on @IndiaToday @irfhabib claimed that with 40 yrs work on Bhagat Singh he didn't find a single line of support from Savarkar for him. I wasn't given time to produce a counter, so here it is abt the bonhomie of the two men(1)
In an article "Vishwa Prem" published twice in Matwala of 15 & 22 nov 1926 Bhagat Singh spoke of Savarkar's tender heart despite being a revolutionary. "World-lover is the hero whom we do not hesitate a little to call a fierce insurgent, staunch anarchist- the same heroic (2)
Savarkar. Coming in the wave of world love he used to stop walking on the grass thinking that the soft grass would be mowed under the feet" (bhagat singh aur unke saathiyon ke sampoorn dastavez, Satyam ed. 2006, p 93) (3)

Conscious of the fact that a batallion of "professional" historians & some crazy trolls have begun discrediting me, my work & whatever I said at @IndiaToday conclave with Dr @ShashiTharoor & @sardesairajdeep . Selective screenshots of NCERT books (usual ploy!) to prove falsehood+
Have been used. If such fakery & sleight of hand can be done on social media pity their students who suffer this on a daily basis!
Given below are links of entire books of NCERT :
Class 6:…
Class 7:…
Class 8:…
Anyone can download entire books & see my point proved amply. Class 7 textbook has merely a map in chp 2, pp 16 that just states names of southern dynasties like Rashtrakutas, Pandyas etc. Some hiranyagarbha myth cited to make Rashtrakutas & their brahmin priests appear foolish

Since quoting 1930-1940 texts seems to be the flavour of the times, Dr BR Ambedkar in "Pakistan or the Partition of India" 1940

"The brotherhood of Islam is not the universal brotherhood of man. It is brotherhood of Muslims for Muslims only" (1/n).
"There is a fraternity, but its benefit is confined to those within that corporation. For those who are outside the corporation, there is nothing but contempt and enmity." (2/n)
"The second defect of Islam is that it is a system of social self-government and is incompatible with local self-government, because the allegiance of a Muslim does not rest on his domicile in the country which is his but on the faith to which he belongs." (3/n)

On the occasion of the birth anniversary of #VeerSavarkar posting some of my articles on him in recent past in wake of intense calumny he faces all the time! The much-misunderstood, maligned leader of our times! @narendramodi…
His views on social reforms, caste system, untouchability, cow protection etc were way ahead of their times n resisted strongly by the orthdox. An aspect of #VeerSavarkar we r seldom told abt! @narendramodi…
#VeerSavarkar sadly gets dragged in contemporary political mudslinging by opponents of @BJP4India or @narendramodi which does a great disservice to his legacy…

Thank you Yogendra ji and i am glad there is civil discourse. I obviously can't put things in 140 character twitter-war format. But will b addressing all these issues in depth in my book based on years of research. Meanwhile u could read his Hindu Rashtra darshan and also (1/n)
The views of Sir Cripps who met Savarkar too and had remarked that one of the most clear n tough stands on freedom were taken by this man n i was flummoxed by his lawyer-like arguments (not exact words, but sum n substance). (2/n)
Under him the Hindu Mahasabha articulated a clear vision of free India where minorities could enjoy all rights n no special privileges like communal award or excess representations. Many like Savarkar n Ambedkar or Bose did not approve of Gandhi's methods (3/n)
