I had written earlier how the British manipulated and spread misinformation about the history of India.This , they carried out by Deliberately misinterpreting Indian texts,Declare Indians did not record their history,Indian texts are only myths,bordering on Fantasy and there not to be trusted, hired people both Foreigners, including The British and Indians for a hefty sum to misinterpret Hindu texts and lastly brought in and introduced the now defunct Theory of Aryan Invasion.
I have written an article titled ‘Uproot the Rig Veda Max Mueller, Mueller, the Fraud’s Quote’ I referred to the attempt of Max Mueller to insert seemingly innocuous Translation which actually contained misinformation , the object being to denigrate Rig Veda and thus make Hindus lose respect for Rig Veda.

He did all this for 200 Pounds for fifty sheets at the rate of Four Pounds a Sheet! The year was 1867! For comparison look at the cost during that period. ‘He was highly paid for this job. According to the statistical information given on page 214 of the “English Education, 1798-1902” by John William Adamson, printed by Cambridge University Press in 1930, the revised scale of a male teacher was £90 per year and for a woman, £60 in 1853. The present salary of a teacher in London is £14,000 to £36,000 per year, which averages a minimum of at least 200 times increase in the last 146 years. Max Müller was paid £4 per sheet of his writing which comes to £800 of today (1999). This is an incredibly high price for only one sheet of writing.But it’s the general law of business, that the price of a commodity increases with its demand. The British were in such an imperative need to get someone to do this job and Max Müller was the right person, so they paid whatever Max Müller asked for. His enthusiastic letter to his mother dated April 15, 1847 reveals this fact.’
Why he was he paid ? ‘

To Chevalier Bunsen. 55 St. John Street, Oxford, August 25, 1856.
“India is much riper for Christianity than Rome or Greece were at the time of St. Paul. The rotten tree has for some time had artificial supports… For the good of this struggle I should like to lay down my life, or at least to lend my hand to bring about this struggle. Dhulip Singh is much at Court, and is evidently destined to play a political part in India.”
To the duke of Argyll. Oxford, December 16, 1868.
“India has been conquered once, but India must be conquered again, and that second conquest should be a conquest by education. Much has been done for education of late, but if the funds were tripled and quadrupled, that would hardly be enough… A new national literature may spring up, impregnated with western ideas, yet retaining its native spirit and character… A new national literature will bring with it a new national life, and new moral vigour. As to religion, that will take care of itself. The missionaries have done far more than they themselves seem to be aware of.” “The ancient religion of India is

TO HIS WIFE, OXFORD, December 9, 1867. “…I feel convinced, though I shall not live to see it, that this edition of mine and the translation of the Veda will hereafter tell to a great extent on the fate of India, and on the growth of millions of souls in that country. It is the root of their religion, and to show them what that root is, I feel sure, the only way of uprooting all that has sprung from it during the last 3,000 years.”
