Official Rajasthan Tourism Twitter Account Called Rani Padmini ‘Beloved’ Of Alauddin Khilji

Published on 28 July, 2016 at 9:48 am By

On July 16, the official Twitter handle of the tourism ministry of Rajasthan government posted this tweet.

 

The tweet is catastrophic for those who know history because it says that Alauddin Khilji, the second ruler of the Khilji dynasty, was the “beloved” of Rani Padmini of Mewar.

Truth is that Alauddin Khilji coveted Rani Padmini, who was the wife of Raja Ratan Singh. Both Sultanate and Rajput versions of the war that was fought between the valorous forces of Mewar and the invading troops of Khilji state that it was the Sultan’s desire of capture Rani Padmini by force which led to the war.

Malik Muhammed Jayasi’s ‘Padmavat’ retells the story of Rani Padmini, the war, and the Jauhar she performed when it became apparent that Khilji will be victorious.

Yet the Rajasthan government committed a huge blunder, so Twitterati pointed that out.

 



 

The handlers of the official Twitter account tried to argue that it was a “historical fact”.
