Dr Prakash Shah, Reader of Culture and Law at Queen Mary University of London, speaks to CNN’s News18 about the Bhima-Koregaon violence. “Alot of hatred is being created against upper castes and Brahmins, using history as a means to achieve it”, he said. Quoting well-known Indologist SN Balagangadhara’s ‘colonial consciousness’, Shah argues that the Christian notion of history, as brought by Europeans, should be re-evaluated.
