DNA: History twisted; Freedom fighters labeled "terrorists" in WB

A class 8 history text book in West Bengal has described freedom fighters who sacrificed their life for India as terrorists. The textbook published by the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education has a chapter on “revolutionary terrorism” and castigates bravehearts like Khudiram Bose, Jatindranath Mukherjee and Prafulla Chaki as “terrorists". The book has already created a huge controversy with historians and political parties up in arms.
