Anshul Saxena Has The Perfect Answer To The ‘Intellectuals’ Questioning Rani Padmavati’s Jauhar

Published on 25 November, 2017 at 3:28 pm By

The debate over Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film ‘Padmavati’ has reached a disturbing pitch. Threats have been issued against the filmmaker, the lead actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, and violent demonstrations have been held against the movie. Some state governments have categorically stated that they won’t allow the film to be released in their respective states. On the other hand Mamata Banerjee has become the first Chief Minister to come out in vocal support of the movie.

People are angry over the alleged depiction of Padmavati in the movie. They believe that Bhansali is showing the queen in poor light. It should, however, be noted that the groups which accuse Bhansali of distorting history has seen it.

While the protestors have already vitiated the atmosphere, the ‘intellectuals’ have taken it to another level of hatred. Some of them questioned whether Rani Padmavati was even real. Others went as far as questioning her act of Jauhar suggesting that she should have surrendered herself to the lecherous Alauddin Khilji.

 

It the ‘intellectuals’ that Anshul Saxena addresses in his recent video.

He begins by telling a quick fact about Alauddin Khilji:

“Khilji had such an insatiable sexual appetite that he had relations with males, too. Malik Kafur or ‘Hazar Dinari’ was one of the prominent males who had such a relation with the Sultan. All of this has been written in many historical accounts including Tarikh-e-Firozshahi.”

Then he draws the attention of the ‘intellectuals’ to the most horrific case of human cruelty since probably the Holocaust – the Islamic State’s treatment of the Yazidis.



He recounts that hundreds of Yazidi women were kept as sex slaves by the ISIS barbarians.

 

Nadia Murad, a Yazidi woman from a small village in northern Iraq who at the age of 19 was abducted by ISIS militants and kept for months as a sex slave before she escaped. YouTube

Saxena points out that such a horrific crime against women of an entire civilization happened at a time when the world has the best of weapons, United Nations, plethora of human rights groups, etc.

“Yet we failed to save the Yazidi women. Why? Because we surrendered to the situation. This is why we can’t judge a situation. Padmavati had only two options, and she chose Jauhar.”

He correctly points out that if Padmavati and the other women had gone to fight Khilji, all of them might have been captured alive and tortured forever.

And then he asks a question perhaps no intellectual can answer:

“Imagine your house is surrounded by a bloodthirsty horde of barbarians, and you know that this horde will invade your home, take you prisoner and keep you as sex slave. What will you do? Surrender?”
