Why the Vedas and Indian history must be reinterpreted?
Max Muller admitted his intention to undermine Hinduism. In a letter to his wife in 1886 he wrote: “The translation of the Veda will hereafter tell to a great extent on the fate of India and on the growth of millions of souls in that country. It is the root of their religion, and to show them what the root is, I feel sure, is the only way of uprooting all that has sprung from it during the last 3000 years”. On 16 December 1868 he wrote a letter to the Duke of Argyll, the then Secretary of State for India in which he said, “India has been conquered once, but India must be conquered again and that second conquest should be a conquest by education “
Why the Vedas and Indian history must be reinterpreted therefore, to believe that their interpretation of the Vedas was what the Vedic seers and saints had in their minds is wholly inappropriate.
It is for this reason, if not for anything else, we must rewrite and reinterpret the Vedas and other scriptures where necessary. Not only the Vedic teachings but also the Indian history has been distorted and twisted.
he main idea used to describe the history of ancient India is the so- called Aryan invasion theory. Therefore, it is an absolute necessity not only to interpret Sanatana Dharma in its right perspective but also to rewrite the ancient and medieval Indian history.
Indeed this the only way we can bring confidence to our nation, instill pride in our people and create peace and harmony within the country. Unfortunately we have been facing a concerted resistance from a certain number of the so – called intellectuals and historians against such a move.
