    Declassify report on the 1948 Hyderabad massacre by Swaminomics : SA Aiyar's blog-The Times Of India

    Even though I have some reservations on the article such as the exclusive focus on the post victory "pogrom" and just a passing reference to the atrocities of the Razakars who started the bloodletting by massacring Hindus, I am willing to over look that and agree with the quoted part if it is not just limited to the "Sunderlal report" and we get to study history as it is - without any sanitization and whitewashing. As a start, start telling the truth about the massacre of Hindus in the moplah rebellion which is now transformed into some sort of a independence struggle.

    Is NCERT upto the challenge ? Or even this un-sanitization process would be a "sanitized" one ?

    Declassifying those documents will not help Congress in the coming elections and the worse, it will fuel the Right Wing.

    Is such a large number of casualties `50,000-200,000 deaths` possible - that would perhaps be a large percentage of the population of Hyderabad itself in 1947.

    It will not help Cong alright but how will it help fuel RWs? Cong will be exposed of pseudo secularism. It will lose its "votebank".

    BJP will use it for their own agenda just like they used Babri Masjid and the result, more Hindu's lean towards RW.
