"The Karni Sena wants a ban on the film 'Jodhaa Akbar' an unconditional apology from its director for misrepresentation and social devaluation of Rajputs," Sena patron Lokendra Singh Kalvi said here.if you were hitler's grandson, would you object to the portrayal of nazis in the film 'schindler's list'? wouldn't you think twice before you even step out and identify yourself as hitler's grandson? wouldn't you object to being identified as a nazi just because your grandfather was one?
it isn't nice to call yourself rajput: you weren't the only people who died fighting invaders. the nameless lower caste soldiers outnumbered you by a hundred to one. maybe more. but you got all the credit. and you claimed all the power after the wars too. just as you had enjoyed them before the wars. and you also enjoyed ownership of all the lands, waters and even the jungles. you fought more fiercely to protect the caste system than you fought the invaders. you shared power with the invaders, so that you could continue to oppress all the lower caste people who'd fought alongside you, after the wars ended. you were the sword arm of the brahmin. unless you still believe you are the master race or of a superior varna, how can anyone 'devalue' you? the terms rajput, brahmin, vaishya do not denote identities, they announce your continued subscription to an hideous ideology.
every time you call yourself a rajput or a brahmin you insult all the lower caste people of india who'd like to be acknowledged as human.
