WHY KABIR KHAN’S STATEMENT “MUGHALS WERE ORIGINAL NATION BUILDERS” IS CREATING HAVOC ON TWITTER. WHY KABIR KHAN’S STATEMENT “MUGHALS WERE ORIGINAL NATION BUILDERS” ARE FACTUALLY INCORRECT , MISLEADING & TOTAL WHITEWASH OF THEIR CRIME DONE TO HUMANITY?
It is all started by Release of The Empire TV series. It is an Indian historical fiction streaming television series created by Nikkhil Advani and directed by Mitakshara Kumar based on the novel series Empire of the Moghul by Alex Rutherford for Disney+ Hotstar. The series was premiered on Disney+ Hotstar on August 27, 2021.
Then comes statement of Kabir Khan.
The filmmaker said, “I find it hugely problematic and disturbing because what really makes me upset is that it’s being done just to go with the popular narrative. I can understand when a filmmaker has researched something and a filmmaker wants to make a point… Of course, there can be different viewpoints. If you want to demonise the Mughals, please base it on some research and make us understand why; why they were the villains that you think they were. Because if you do some research and read history, it’s very tough to understand why they have to be villainized. I think they were the original nation-builders, and to write them off and say they murdered people… But what are you basing it on? Please point out the historical evidence. Please have an open debate, just don’t go with the narrative that you think will be popular.”Koimoi.com

Some Views and Points raised were:-
1.They were of view that Kabir khan i disguise of being a responsible Filmaker is spreading propaganda of Cruel Religious Violence.
2.Babri Masjid was built by Babur after demolishing Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, killed thousands of Hindus. why glorifying such invader?
3.In 1526 Babur established the Mughal rule in India. In his autobiographical memoir Babur Nama, he describes his campaigns against the Hindus as Jihad, punctuated with verse & references from the Quran.
