भारत का इतिहास सिर्फ वो नहीं है जो गुलामी की मानसिकता के साथ इतिहास लिखने वालों ने लिखा- PM MODI

Prime Minister

बीते कुछ सालों में देशभर में इतिहास, आस्था, आध्यात्म, संस्कृति से जुड़े जितने भी स्मारकों का निर्माण किया जा रहा है, उनका बहुत बड़ा लक्ष्य पर्यटन को बढ़ावा देने का भी है। उत्तर प्रदेश तो पर्यटन और तीर्थाटन, दोनों के मामले में समृद्ध भी है और इसकी क्षमताएं भी अपार हैं। चाहे वह भगवान राम का जन्म स्थान हो या कृष्ण का वृंदावन, भगवान बुद्ध का सारनाथ हो या फिर काशी विश्वनाथ, संत कबीर का मगहर धाम हो या वाराणसी में संत रविदास की जन्मस्थली का आधुनिकीकरण, पूरे प्रदेश में बड़े पैमाने पर काम चल रहा है। इनके विकास के लिए भगवान राम, श्रीकृष्ण और बुद्ध के जीवन से सम्बन्धित स्थलों जैसे अयोध्या, चित्रकूट, मथुरा, वृन्दावन, गोवर्धन, कुशीनगर, श्रावस्ती आदि तीर्थ स्थलों पर रामायण सर्किट, आध्यात्मिक सर्किट, बौद्ध सर्किटका विकास किया जा रहा हैं।

Partition of Bengal Province and British Parliament Debate-1905

In 1854 Lord Dalhousie described the burden which fell upon the Lieutenant-Governor of Bengal as one that was more than mortal man could bear. At that time the population of Bengal was 40,000,000. It was now approximately 78,000,000. Not only was the province itself, enormous as it was, constantly increasing and growing in population, and getting beyond the control of a single individual, but Calcutta, which in 1872 had 633,000 inhabitants, had now within the same boundaries no less than 847,000 in-habitants, and including the suburbs the inhabitants numbered 1,100,000, which made it the second city in point of population in the British Empire.

Quit India Resolution(Text) drafted by Barrister M K Gandhi-27/04/1942

The committee is of the opinion that it is harmful to India’s interests, and dangerous to the cause of India’s freedom, to introduce foreign soldiers in India. It therefore appeals to the British Government to remove these foreign legions, and henceforth stop further introduction. It is a crying shame to bring foreign troops in, in spite of India’s inexhaustible man power, and it is proof of the immorality that British imperialism is.

The Conquest of Goa by Portuguese Affonso de Albuquerque

Albuquerque, his desire to earn the friendship of Hindu rulers and his unrelenting enmity to all Muhammadans. He had not the absurd notion which Almeida attributed to him of desiring to establish a direct Portuguese rule all over India. He wished rather to pose as the destroyer of Muhammadanism and the liberator of the natives. In return for this service Portugal was to control the commerce of India with Europe.
