Abstract

Last month saw yet another controversy over censored history textbooks, as schoolbooks in Rajasthan were reported to have omitted India’s first Prime Minister (among others). Eviane Leidig discusses the background to the latest incident and argues that it is reflective of the current government’s pro-Hindutva agenda that is becoming increasingly visible in the international spotlight.
