Bollywood Desk, Delhi- Magazine: A new debate has started in the media these days. Recently, director Kabir Khan had called the Mughals the real nation builders in an interview. He also said that he cannot respect the films in which the Mughals are shown wrongly. After this statement, lyricist Manoj Muntashir shared a video, Manoj Muntashir took a dig at the Mughal rulers, calling them ‘glorified dacoits’.
And he said that Mughals were invaders from outside, how can it be ideal if someone comes from outside and takes possession of your house and makes your family members their slaves?
“For the last several centuries, we have left the lands of our history unclaimed. We got brainwashed to such an extent that suddenly Ganesh was changed from c to donkey from our pre-primary text books and we did not even have a force on our forehead. The roads leading to our house were also named after glorified dacoits like Akbar, Humayun, Jahangir and we kept on applauding as we saw the opportunistic leaders cutting the ribbon.
He asked people how is Akbar an Ideal king?
Who was the ideal king to kill 30,000 civilians in Chittorgarh in the name of Jihad? Jilleilahi was the one who got the Meena Bazaar installed in front of the Agra Fort? Jilleilahi, that is, the shadow of God. Which God is this, whose shadow is so dark?
Ravan was a Brahman but, he was a bad man, so brahman people worships Ram instead of Ravana
Choose your heroes and villains irrespective of caste, which is the tradition of this great country. Ravana was a Brahmin. Born in the direct blood line of Lord Brahma, but have you seen a Brahmin praising Ravana? But in our country still their are many raods on the name of Orangzeb, Akbar. And still muslim and some librandu and talibani category people in our country praise these glorified dacoits.
