CALCUTTA, INDIA, January 2, 2001: The 61st annual congress of Indian historians has begun in the city of Calcutta. At the opening ceremony the Nobel Laureate and economist, Amartya Sen, said that current "fundamentalist trends" in India threatened its secular traditions. He said that Hindu epics such as Ramayana should not be treated as part of Indian history. A BBC correspondent in the region says Mr. Sen's comments are likely to provoke angry reactions from various Hindu groups.
