    "#RemoveMughalsFromBooks and put them in PDF form for ease of access please."

    The book contained controversial content dealing with Shivaji and the Mughals, and was allegedly discontinued over a decade ago.

    Supporters took her speech one step further by calling for a complete ban on Mughal history being taught in Indian schools, and trending #RemoveMughalsFromBooks on Twitter.

    Mughals were invaders, Outsider, Looters They murdered Indian religiously, n made Religious Slaves by Conversion. So #RemoveMughalsFromBooks
