Here is the list of the books written by Mr. Purushottam Nagesh Oak
you can verify the list from books.google.com. On many blogs and sites
people have referred to him as professor, he was never a
professor, he did
his own brand of research and often times is called a mythistorian or simply
a crackpot.

Just going through the titles of the books the writer reveals his brand and agenda.
Oaks theories have been rejected in academic circle, but he has found
popular following among members of India's right wing Hindu groups, who play the
anti Muslim politics to mobilise the innocent, illiterate and hungry masses.
Narasimhan Ram, editor of The Hindu newspaper, called him a Sangh historian.
The Indian Government has banned a number of books on the ground of spreading
hatred against Indian Muslims and causing disruption in the society. Although there
is no historical base in his writings certain sections of Hindu hard liner group are
ready and eager to embrace his theories and spread them through their blogs
and literature to promote their own anti Muslim agenda.
Nowhere in the history departments his books are referred, only people who want to
live in make believe world would want to refer to him. Besides this, Indian history is
studied in other very advance centres of the world too, where historical facts are respected
as facts for the subject. They do not change it for politics or convenience or for maligning
a particular community. Because of the people like Mr. Oak, for studying Indian history,
students have to the University of Chicago, MI, Library. Such pseudo historians defame India for tampering history. Indian Supreme Court has dismissed Oaks's petition to declare "Taj Mahal is a hindu Temple" and he was admonished for wasting precious time of the court.
Lets make some progress together, lets not find the faults in history, find the faults
in present and try and correct them, we all will benefit from this. Lets not pursue
our already corrupt government to investigate historical facts. Let them make, roads,
schools and hospitals. Stop killing and raping of our women. Today Not Mahmood of
Ghazni but your own people are plundering, today not British Colonizers but your own
political leader and sucking the country dry. They want us to dwell in past flaws and not see any problems with the present system.
