Raj Thackeray Donates Rs 25 Lakh to India History Research Institute, Advocates for Holistic History Education

Raj Thackeray's Call for a Holistic Approach to History

February 10, 2024: MNS President Raj Thackeray, during his recent visit to the India History Research Institute in Pune, expressed regret over the prevalence of caste politics in Maharashtra. Thackeray emphasized the need for more visionary leaders, lamenting that the state’s political landscape is overshadowed by caste-based agendas. He announced a generous donation of Rs 25 lakh to support the redevelopment of the institute’s premises located in Sadashiv Peth.

Thackeray underscored the significance of studying history beyond the lens of caste affiliations, advocating for a holistic approach to understanding Maharashtra’s rich heritage. During his visit, he presented a historic Babri brick, acquired from Ayodhya, symbolizing a pivotal moment in Indian history.
