I asked this question on Mahabharata and used a history tag. Someone added a mythology tag. I removed it and it was added back again.
Before I ask a question, I would like to give some background.
A myth is defined by Merriam-Webster dictionary as
an idea or story that is believed by many people but that is not true
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines mythology as such
the myths of a particular group or culture
ideas that are believed by many people but that are not true
The question is why am I being forced to add a mythology tag? What is wrong with only the history tag?
PS: The Hindus do not like to acknowledge their own history and keep casting a strong doubt on it be using words like mythology. The Chinese and the Japanese promote and protect their history and culture. I wonder if this is fear, confusion about our own origins, shame, leftover intellectual colonization by the British, brainwashing by the Judeo-Christian thoughts or all of these.
