Friday, June 7, 2019 • Tamil Comments

Madan Lal Saini, the Rajasthan BJP President, is in the news for saying that Mughal emperor Akbar used to do sins at a market place meant only for women.  He used to go to this market in the disguise of a woman.

"Akbar had set up Meena bazaar.  Women used to do all the work there, and men weren't allowed. The way Akbar used to go there in disguise and do misdeeds, it is recorded in history. Akbar wanted to molest Kiran Devi (queen of Bikaner) but she was alert, she slammed him on the ground and put a dagger on his chest. Akbar had begged for his life saying 'Baadshah of Hindustan is below your feet'.  After this incident, Meena Bazaar was closed down," Saini said.

It is now for the historians to check whether the incident the BJP leader has spoken of really occurred.
