Rajasthan BJP president recently said that when Mughal emperor Humayun was on his deathbed, he summoned Babur and told him to respect cows, Brahmins and women, if he wanted to rule India. Madan Lal Saini was talking to the press on the issue of recent lynching in Alwar. Arguing that people should respect the points of “belief of any country, society or religion”, he highlighted the ‘conversation’ between the two Mughal emperors.
His remark, however, created a huge buzz online as the history lesson was not but a gaffe as Babur was Humayun’s father and has passed away 25 years prior to latter’s death.
“Kisi bhi samaj, desh, dharm ke shraddha ke bindu ka samman sabhi logo ne karna chahiye. Mujhe yaad ata hai, jab Humayun mar raha tha, us samay usne Babur ko bulaya tha. Aur unhone kaha tha ki Hindustan me tumko sashan karna hai to teen chizo ka dhyan rakhna. (People should respect the points of belief of any country, society or religion. I remember, when Humayun was dying, he summoned Babur. And he had said that if you want to rule Hindustan, you should keep three things in mind),” Saini had told reporters. “Ek to gaai, Brahman aur mahila, inke izzat pe kisi bhi tarah ka inke apman nahi hona chahiye. Hindustan isko sahan nahi karta hai (There shouldn’t be any insult to the honour of cow, Brahmin and women. Hindustan doesn’t tolerate this),” the Rajasthan BJP president stressed.
Videos of the conference went viral on social media with many trolling the politician for faulty history knowledge. While many were irked by the remark others took a sarcastic route to take a jibe at him. Sample these:
Please read history before misinterpreting it for your present politics. Babar died before Humayun. https://t.co/Rs7upFq2GY

Humayun originally called Alexander but his ISD was deactivated owing to excess love jihad. Then they formed a whatsapp group called destroy Hindus with the Pope as admin. Then they caused a drought that created #Rajesthan out of the Indian Ocean. Stop lynching #IndianHistory https://t.co/UWfYKT1iAe

Humayun died in 1556. But when he was dying, he somehow called Babur who was already dead in 1531 to give him this gyaan.

When Humayun was dying he trunk-called his long dead Abba, Babar and told him, there will come a day when Hindustan will be ruled by morons.

Referring to the alleged killing of Rakbar Khan in Alwar while he was transporting cows to his village in Haryana, Saini said that he was previously booked under cases of cow smuggling. However, Saini added that the death of Rakbar was unfortunate.
