Description

The Murder of History By K.K.Aziz Sang-E- Meel, In this book, I have scrutinized 66 textbooks on Social Studies, Pakistan Studies, and History in use in the schools and colleges of Pakistan by students of classes 1 to 14, discussed their contents at full length and explored the dimensions, implications, and ramifications of their errors, faults, and deficiencies.

This study has taken its rise from a series of adventitious circumstances, not all agreeable or gratifying. In 1989-90 I wrote a book on the Pakistani historian which contained one chapter of 82 pages, the longest of all, on the textbooks written by the historians of the country and in use in the schools and colleges. (The book has since been published by Vanguard under the title of The Pakistani Historian, and I advise the reader to look through it to understand why such books have been written by the country’s historians). The typescript was handed over to a Lahore publisher on 25 March 1990, and two weeks later I went away to Cambridge for an 8-month spell of teaching and writing, with a firm promise from him that the book would be in the market before the year was out. But he bilked me and did not publish it then or ever. This unredeemed pledge led, in slow stages, to the expansion of the chapter on textbooks into the present full-length study. Blighted hopes do sometimes turn into cheerful prospects if one has the requisite fortitude and resolve and of course luck. My work has never offered me the leisure to write so I have nothing for journals or newspapers. But the publisher’s remissness was making me impatient, and when The Frontier Post offered to serialize this particular chapter. The murder of History By K.K.Aziz Sang-E- Meel
