00:00 "The fundamentals of his religion won't teach him to behave like this. Are you saying the fundamentals of Islam teach them to be violent? That's very generalized sir."


01:21 "If you're a non-Hindu consuming this podcast, please watch the entire length of it because this was actually a bit of a debate rather than just a one-way street in terms of conversation."


03:06 "Absolutely... these are not history textbooks... they are propaganda material, manuals for indoctrinating generations of Indian children."


04:58 "The chapters we're taught about... like Alauddin Khilji... you need a movie like Padmaavat to actually make you understand aspects of the truth about even the pre-Mughal rulers and there was too much brutality that happened which is not really mentioned in the history textbooks."


06:59 "What also kind of hurts me is that even our history textbooks instill a sense of self-doubt and low self-esteem in students when we should actually be talking about the Chola Dynasty, the Ahom Dynasty... we're not taught enough about the formation of Pakistan, we're not taught enough about general Indian history."


10:51 "Would you like to talk about the Mughal rule or would you like to talk about the present history textbooks where we began, because I think that's kind of the base layer of everything we've spoken about, the history textbooks."


12:59 "I think there's some new education policy which I have not read in full, but I believe a lot of reforms have been made in textbooks. I hope that the new education policy doesn't instill hate in the history textbooks."


15:20 "Is it fair to say that we are just talking about history as history and not at all about Hindu versus Muslim because there is communal tension in the country today... I don't want to be a part of that soup; in fact, I want to be the reverse of that soup because of what our country needs geopolitically today, which is unity."


17:02 "I personally feel that if we attach whatever happened during the Islamic invasions to the modern-day Muslim, it's the equivalent of saying all the white people in the USA were slave owners... that country is suffering. I don't want the same to happen to my country because, for me, I love being Hindu, but I'm Indian before I'm Hindu."


19:58 "I don't think that anyone should completely rely on a book as the complete compass for their life... but not all Muslims and Christians fully listen to the book because they understand the truth about modern society."


24:58 "What went wrong in India for those invasions to become successful...? There was a lack of unity... 'Hard men build soft times, soft times build soft men, and soft men build hard times'... we were at that 'Hard Times' point when we're talking about India getting invaded, which is preceded by 'Soft men'."


27:45 "Why don't we begin with what happened pre-Islamic invasions in India... what was the landscape, the culture of all Indians at that point in the subcontinent, and by subcontinent, I also mean Pakistan, I also mean Afghanistan."


34:49 "All you and me can do for future Indians is talk, debate, put out the truth, uh, and do our role... I'm not a social reformer; I'm not a... I don't have... I don't speak on anybody's behalf. I live a very, very simple life with a few convictions."
