Will Durant, an American philosopher, once said-

 

“India was the motherland of our race and Sanskrit the mother of Europe’s languages: she was the mother of our philosophy, mother of much of our mathematics; mother of ideals embodied in Christianity; mother of self-government and democracy. Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all.”

The pages that are to be removed include a claim that the majority of Crimean Tatars “were loyal to” the Nazis, and that “many actively helped them.”

The claim echoes the pretext that Soviet dictator Josef Stalin’s government used when it deported Crimean Tatars en masse from the Black Sea peninsula in 1944, asserting that they were collaborators.

Many died on the journey or in exile in Central Asia and the steppes of southern Russia.
