Request to Swami Ramdev: for proof that India once ruled the world from Europe to Monogolia to Vietnam
I chanced upon this talk given by Swami Ramdev just a few days ago:
In this talk (1:09 minute to 1:38) Swami Ramdev suggests that sometime in India's history, the entire Europe and Asia was ruled by India. (Nothing except perhaps Siberia and Japan were left out – although that is not clear from the statement). Since USA/Australia did not exist, nor was Africa a major power, presumably these parts of the world are left out.
I find this a most astonishing and untenable claim. Why is this kind of a claim being made? What is its purpose?
I noticed that lots of people were busy taking notes of this talk. That's a matter of concern.
May I request Swamiji to provide public proof of his claim? This kind of re-writing of history should not be done without prior publication in peer reviewed journals. Has anyone published such claims in any peer-reviewed journal? I'd appreciate relevant reference.
