    A class 8 history text book in West Bengal has described freedom fighters who sacrificed their life for India as terrorists. The textbook published by the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education has a chapter on “revolutionary terrorism” and castigates bravehearts like Khudiram Bose, Jatindranath Mukherjee and Prafulla Chaki as “extremists” and “terrorists".

    Well you yourself are bad mouthing Subhas Chandra Bose by misspelling his name.

    Anyway, during Left rule, the term used in books was 'Biplobi' which means 'Revolutionary', not 'Santasvadi' which means 'Terrorist'. So it is not purely the left dominated intellectuals who made this mess, but some sick minded people or as I suspect, some convent educated idiot made the mistake in translation without even realising what he is writing.
