Hindus in the US are up in arms against suggestions mooted by California's Department of Education to make changes in textbooks which they alleged not only distorted India's history but ignored facts on Hinduism.
    
"Congrats to Hindu activists for successfully opposing and contesting the suggestion to replace 'India' by 'South Asia' in textbooks in USA.

"The Leftist scholars' bid to undermine India's glorious identity was foiled by young Hindu activists and Hindu Education Foundation (HEF) in California, USA," RSS spokesperson Manmohan Vaidya said.
    
He said India has its own identity that needs to be preserved and termed the move to replace it with 'South Asia' as "wrong".
    
"India has its own identity. India has a glorious civilisation and cultural history which was known the world over. It is very wrong to deprive India's identity. The Hindu activists have rightly carried out a campaign and demonstrated against the move," he said.
