    Alas, there are enough imbecile indians to be taken in by such ‘intellectual’ crooks!

    Dalrymple’s view of history is reminiscent of Jack Weatherford’s. Weatherford’s “Genghis Khan and the Makings of the Modern World”, a revisionist history of the conqueror, may share a flavor with Dalrymple’s writings of the Mughal saga.
