Babri demolition ~ How HC Verdict Discredited "Eminent" Historians

Babri demolition ~ How HC Verdict Discredited "Eminent" Historians

Published by Sati Shankar

The inimitable professor gives a glimpse of how Justice Sudhir Agarwal took apart all these so called experts and eminent historians, one of whom had the gall to tell the court that they were not giving a statement on oath, they were not giving a statement on the basis of their knowledge, but they were giving their statement on the basis of their opinion!! Quotes from the article - When opinion can be history why are they all screaming that “faith” cannot be an equally relevant criterion? The judge, Agarwal, was sufficiently moved to say about [Prof. D] Mandal that “the statements made by him in cross-examination show the shallowness of his knowledge on the subject”. But [Suraj] Bhan confessed that the grandly titled Historians’ Report to the Nation was written under “pressure” in six weeks and “without going through the record of the excavation by BB Lal”. [Prof Mandal -] “The Communist Party issues a red card, and I am its holder. It is true that I have no faith in religion.” [Justice Agarwal on Prof. Mandal ] - "The own admissions and clarification this witness has given, we find that the entire opinion of this witness is short of the requirement under Section 45 of the Evidence Act, 1872, to qualify as an opinion of an expert which may be considered relevant on a fact in issue, by this court." Their respective universities would do well to initiate action against them or take other disciplinary steps to improve the reputation of the profession of historian. The textbooks written or edited by them for schools and colleges should be revoked and other books of less eminent — but more honest — historians should be prescribed.~ Nityanand
