India is Country of Immigrants, Even Dravidian and Aryans were Immigrants: Justice Markandey Katju

Date:

* Mughal Emperor Akbar was the original architect of modern India and was the first father of the nation.

* Misinformation was being spread against Tiger of Mysore Tippu Sultan to hinder his image as a just and prolific ruler.

BHATKAL — Former Judge of the Supreme Court of India Markande Katju on Sunday stated that India was a country of immigrants and a majority of people living in the country were from immigrant lineage.

The former judge who is known for his outspoken nature also went on to add even Dravidians and Aryans were immigrants and not natives of India.

He was speaking at the valedictory event of the Centenary Celebrations of Anjuman Hami-e-Muslimeen Bhatkal. He further added that over 90% of the people in the country are from immigrant lineage.

“India was a land that everyone wanted to come to. So people from all regions, religions, and cultures kept coming to India and that is where India diversified. That’s why we have so many languages, so many cultures, and such a diverse and vibrant population,” he said.

He also went on to add that Mughal Emperor Akbar was the original architect of modern India and was the first father of the nation.

Katju then said misinformation was being spread against Tiger of Mysore Tippu Sultan to hinder his image as a just and prolific ruler.

“Tippu Sultan sent grants to 156 Hindu temples in his kingdom, and today people are saying he was a tyrant and bigot to spoil his image. These attempts to hinder his image must be foiled.” Katju said.

He also condemned the incident from UP wherein a 10-year-old boy was thrashed for refusing to chant “Jai Shri Ram”. Katju said events like this, break the country into pieces.
