Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday stressed on the need to rewrite history from India\u2019s point of view underlining that there is not enough research work on likes of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and Maharana Pratap. Inaugurating a two-day international seminar in Varanasi on \u2018Guptvanshak-Veer: Skandgupta Vikramaditya\u2019 at Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Shah said, \u201cIndian history should be rewritten from India\u2019s point of view. We do not have any research work on the struggles of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.\r\n\r\nThe sacrifices of Sikh Gurus and Maharana Pratap are also not authenticated. Had there not been Veer Savarkar, perhaps the revolution of 1857 would not have been history.\u201d\r\n\r\nShah said the 1857 rebellion would have been regarded as a revolt had V D Savarkar not called it the first war of independence. Shah\u2019s remark comes days after the Maharashtra\u00a0BJP\u00a0said in its\u00a0election manifesto\u00a0that the party would ask the Centre to confer the Bharat Ratna on Savarkar.\r\n\r\n\u092d\u093e\u0930\u0924\u0940\u092f \u0907\u0924\u093f\u0939\u093e\u0938 \u0915\u093e \u092d\u093e\u0930\u0924 \u0915\u0947 \u0926\u0943\u0937\u094d\u091f\u093f\u0915\u094b\u0923 \u0938\u0947 \u092a\u0941\u0928\u0930\u094d\u0932\u0947\u0916\u0928 \u0939\u094b\u0928\u093e \u091a\u093e\u0939\u093f\u090f\u0964\r\n\u0939\u092e\u093e\u0930\u0947 \u092a\u093e\u0938 \u091b\u0924\u094d\u0930\u092a\u0924\u093f \u0936\u093f\u0935\u093e\u091c\u0940 \u092e\u0939\u093e\u0930\u093e\u091c \u0915\u0947 \u0938\u0902\u0918\u0930\u094d\u0937\u094b\u0902 \u0915\u093e \u092d\u0940 \u0915\u094b\u0908 \u0936\u094b\u0927 \u0917\u094d\u0930\u0902\u0925 \u0928\u0939\u0940\u0902 \u0939\u0948\u0964 \u0938\u093f\u0916 \u0917\u0941\u0930\u0941\u0913\u0902 \u0914\u0930 \u092e\u0939\u093e\u0930\u093e\u0923\u093e \u092a\u094d\u0930\u0924\u093e\u092a \u0915\u0947 \u092c\u0932\u093f\u0926\u093e\u0928\u094b\u0902 \u0915\u093e \u092d\u0940 \u092a\u094d\u0930\u092e\u093e\u0923\u093f\u0915 \u0917\u094d\u0930\u0902\u0925 \u0928\u0939\u0940\u0902 \u0939\u0948\u0964\r\n\r\n\u092f\u0926\u093f \u0935\u0940\u0930 \u0938\u093e\u0935\u0930\u0915\u0930 \u0928 \u0939\u094b\u0924\u0947 \u0924\u094b \u0936\u093e\u092f\u0926 1857 \u0915\u0940 \u0915\u094d\u0930\u093e\u0902\u0924\u093f \u0915\u093e \u092d\u0940 \u0907\u0924\u093f\u0939\u093e\u0938 \u0928 \u0939\u094b\u0924\u093e\u0964 pic.twitter.com\/GQSGxrBfLd\r\n\r\n\u2014 Amit Shah (@AmitShah) October 17, 2019\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cIt is our responsibility to write our history.
