Nehruvian Historian and left-wing propagandist Ramachandra Guha, who often indulges in distorting historical facts has yet again resorted to similar propaganda claiming that the world ‘surgical strikes’ was first invoked by PM Modi and the army itself did not use the term initially.
In a propaganda post written by Ramachandra Guha in controversial left-wing media The Telegraph, Guha says that it was Narendra Modi government and the propagandists were the first to the term the counter-terror operations inside Pakistan occupied Kashmir as ‘surgical strike’ and claims that the army did not itself use the term to denote it as such.
In a hurry to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Ramachandra Guha indulges in creating his own facts as he does so often. However, the fact is the term surgical strikes was first invoked by the Army itself through the DGMO’s press conference on September 29, 2016, after the attacks were carried out inside Pakistan occupied Kashmir and not by Prime Minister Modi himself as accused by Guha.
Interestingly, Guha’s ideological associate controversial journalist Ravish Kumar had also carried out a debate discussing ‘Surgical strikes’ following the counter-terror operations. By this logic, ‘intellectual’ Ramachandra Guha just ended up referring to Ravish Kumar as Modi’s propagandist’.
Ramachandra Guha, a left-wing historian and a loyalist to the Nehru family is often seen as a controversial figure. Guha has been slammed frequently on social media for falsifying facts and resorting to slander against certain individuals. Ramchandra Guha, who advertises himself as a historian, has been called out various time for inaccuracies in his historical facts and his blind support for the Nehru dynasty.
In November last year, the ABVP had written a memorandum to the Vice-Chancellor demanding the cancellation of Guha’s appointment for being “critical of India’s Hindu culture”. Following the embarrassment, Ramachandra Guha had himself pulled out from teaching assignment citing circumstances ‘beyond his control’.
