Clarifying intentions that no changes would be made in history, the vice-chancellor of University of Rajasthan said that they have no plans to "rewrite" the history. 

The University has received a proposal from the government nominee in its syndicate to include a textbook in the history syllabus which claims that the famous battle of Haldighati was won by Maharana Pratap.

"It has been forwarded to the board of studies of the university for critical examination and appropriate decision," said Rajeshwar Singh, adding that there was no such plan to recreate the historical incident.

He said the proposal was to include a textbook in the history syllabus so that an "alternate opinion" on the Haldighati battle was also highlighted.
The suggested textbook claims that the battle was won by Maharana Pratap. It is a popular view of historians that the forces of Mughal emperor Akbar had defeated Maharana Pratap in the battle of Haldighati in 1576.
