new Delhi. Historian Ramachandra Guha quoted a British writer on Thursday in a tweet about Gujarat. It was said that Gujarat is culturally backward. This thing went wrong to the Chief Minister of Gujarat, Vijay Rupani. He wrote that first the British people divided us and ruled over us. Now people of this elite group want to divide Indians. Our cultural heritage is very strong. Our economic aspirations are very high. We Indians are not going to get involved in these tricks.

Chief Minister Rupani's tweet:

In fact, Guha posted on Twitter the talk written in 1939 by the British writer Philip Spret. Philip wrote – Gujarat is very advanced economically but culturally backward. While there is contrast in Bengal. He is financially backward but culturally far ahead.

Rawal said – Guha is misrepresenting history

Actor-turned-politician Paresh Rawal also did not like this. He also criticized Guha for his tweet. Rawal said that Guha talked about misrepresentation of history books.

I posted because I found that thing fascinating – Guha

Seeing the growing controversy on social media, Guha wrote that I shared that coat just because I found it attractive during research. After this, Guha tweeted another. He wrote – Statutory warning, when I post something, it is part of my research. I post them because they look good to me in some way.

It is possible that I support something or I do not support anyone. But keep your compliment or anger for the person who is quoted.
