Quote from: sharmanarayan on May 28, 2022, 07:17 PMSome scholars have begun using the term "distory" to represent the phenomenon of the "distortion of the history" of a people. The case of the Bhutanese refugees, a majority of whom are resettled and have acquired citizenship of their country of resettlement is a typical case of "distory." The regime in Thimphu not only persecuted the citizens it considered different, it expelled them and continues to distort their history. During its efforts to stigmatize the expelled citizens, the government began a sustained propaganda to distort their early history of their advent to Bhutan.
