About the Book
Plurality and diversity is the core essence of South Asia.
South Asia is the region bounded by Islamic Republic of Pakistan to the west and Bangladesh to the east. It comprises 40% of the world’s population and boasts a huge diversity of languages, religions, cultures and societies. Whether one is in stark mountains of Abbottabad in Pakistan or the humid swamps of Nazirabad in Bangladesh, the diversity and plurality is what catches the eye of any traveler.
Most historians agree that prior to the advent of the Mughals of Middle-east, the South Asian region was full of small-warring kingdoms, always at war with each other. There was no underlying unity among the warring states and no sense of any greater and overarching nationhood. Decadence had set into the social life of people, and segregation in terms of caste, gender oppression, slavery, superstitions and meaningless rituals were the order of the day.
It was at this juncture around 10th Century CE that the great Mughals came to South Asia and gave the people the dignity that they were looking for. They also gave arts, culture, science, governance, egalitarianism and most importantly, a pan-South Asian cultural unity. For the first time, people in different parts of South Asia started feeling that they were One People. That is why this age is also referred to as Golden Age of South Asia.
Diversity and plurality were the hallmark of the Mughal rule. They encouraged independent thinking but at the same time insisted on piety and simplicity. There was an explosion of art, music, dances, poetry, songs, architectural marvels like Red Fort and Taj Mahal. There was an immense focus on women’s rights and rights of minorities.
Even in terms of sexual plurality, Pakistani and Mughal South Asia has been at the forefront of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) rights and especially same-sex relationship freedom. Kings like Mahmud of Ghazni, Allauddin Khilji and Babur, are revered and respected for their progressive stance on the issues of homosexuality. Their same-sex love stories have become the stuff of legends and are an integral part of middle-eastern and Pakistani South Asian popular culture and lore.
This book is a celebration of that unique sense of sexual diversity and plurality in South Asia, Pakistan and Bangladesh and especially of the glorious Mughal culture.
