Prime Minister Narendra Modi seems to be really bad at history. Time and again he has proven that his recalling of India history is imprecise.
Even if he is considered one of the best orators, one cannot deny that his knowledge of the Indian history is very weak.
Recently, Modi went on to say that Bhagat Singh was kept in Andaman prison, but in actual, he was never kept in that prison.
However, this is not the first instance of him goofing up the Indian history.
Earlier in October 2013, Modi, while addressing a rally in Patna said, Takshashila was in Bihar; it is in Pakistan.
He also said Porus was defeated on the banks of the Ganges; that battle with Alexander never went beyond the Jhelum river in Pakistani Punjab.
In November 2013, he referred our Father of the Nation Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi as “Mohanlal Karamchand Gandhi”.
In Meerut in 2013, Modi argued that the Congress party had thoroughly devalued India’s first war of independence, which began in Meerut. For his information, the rebellion erupted in 1857 and the Congress Party was formed almost after three decades of the occurrence, in 1885.
Mr. Modi really needs to brush up his knowledge of Indian history, otherwise he will lose that little credibility also he is left with.
