This new and improved script of Padmaavat should put a smile on the liberal, pseudo-feminist face

The movie Padmaavat has brought all kinds of virtue signalling, Hindu-hating and Islamic invasion loving liberals out of their lounge sofas and high tables. They gather around the imaginary moral high ground of their version of modern-day feminism and pass judgement after judgement on how the 13th-century queen of Mewar should have behaved.

Just when we thought we have recovered from Audrey Truschke’s relentless portrayal of Aurangzeb as Mr ‘oh so noble’, another wave of virtue signallers started pontificating. This time they were up against Rani Padmavati of Chittorgarh. Apparently, some self-proclaimed feminists have a problem with Rani Padmavati choosing to do jouhar and not be captured by Allahuddin Khilji. Yes, the advocates of “my body my choice” have a problem with a queen not wanting to be raped and turned into a sex slave. Irony just blew itself up!

First, it was Mr Devdutt Pattnaik, who seemed to have forgotten that ‘Sati’ and ‘Jouhar’ are two entirely different things.

When Sanjay Bhansali’s movie ‘Padmaavat’ finally released after much difficulties, some liberated pseudo-feminists like Swara Bhaskar had an issue with the portrayal Queen Padmavati too. For reasons best known to them, they felt ‘reduced to a vagina’. We had published a rebuttal of Ms Bhaskar’s rants yesterday.

However, one Twitter user, Pratyasha Rath, decided to give the liberal feminists an entirely different reaction. Something that should delight them to no bounds. An ‘improved’ modern-day-feminism’ infused version of Padmaavat.

So here we present to our readers; Padmaavat- The Liberal Modern-Feminist version.

So Khilji’s Army enters the palace and because our liberals had a problem with Khilji being portrayed as a barbarian, in the feminist version, the women would rejoice at Khilji’s sight. Only patriarchal, regressive Hindus can see Khilji as someone ‘uncool’. How can he, when he ‘owned his sexuality’ to such an extent.

And why should a Husband be worried about his wife’s safety? That seems to be the regressive thing to do. Hindu men and their silly masculinity, God help us!

Centuries of oppression has made us Sanghi women blind to liberation offered by invading armies. The plight of hundreds of Yazidi women in the modern world is just media misinformation anyway. The ISIS terrorists are not raping and torturing them, they are teaching them how not to limit their existence to their vaginas. Our liberals have the true knowledge.

Yes, many of our Bollywood reformers think Khilji was beyond cool, he made roads and mosques. Who cares that he built them after ravaging Hindu temples? Here is an example:

 

Isn’t it what these ‘liberated women’ want? Yes, just to show Padmavati made a bad decision by committing Jouhar, they would rather praise life as a sex slave.

In few brilliant tweets, Pratyasha destroys the modern-day pseudo-feminist propaganda of pseudo-activists who just cannot think beyond sex and sexuality. For our Bollywood thinkers, medieval history is nothing, warfare strategies and politics be damned. It has to be all about sexuality and its expression. Some decoupling indeed!

Ms Swara Bhaskar gloriously became a part of a movie that promoted stalking, falsely blaming a decent person for sexual harassment (the poor doctor in Ranjhnaa) and rejoiced getting slapped by the male lead in that movie. But when she saw Padmaavat, the activist in her suddenly woke up.

So as Ms Bhaskar promoted the idea that sex slavery is better than suicide any day, Pratyasha caught that beautifully in another scene.

Finally, Pratyasha brings out the hypocrisy of self-proclaimed activists.

Hope we will one day get to see these scenes made into a real movie. A movie that will be the liberal, pseudo-feminist dream.

Meanwhile, Ms Bhaskar had another meltdown today. For someone who doesn’t want to be ‘reduced’ to a certain body part, she certainly is obsessed with it.
