Indian Olympic wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt on Monday took to Twitter to express his take on the ongoing Padmavati row on social media. After filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali was attacked by members of a fringe outfit from Rajput community on the sets in Jaipur, who claimed that in Bhansali’s Padmavati he is trying to show Rani Padmini, a Rajput Queen Dutt getting intimate with Alauddin Khilji. Many famous personalities have expressed their concern over freedom of expression. But Dutt seems to have a different view. He tweeted some facts about the history of Padmini and said that a novel is different from “history” and “tampering with history is unacceptable”.

“The story of the queen of Chittor, her sacrifice is immortal in the pages of history. Ratan Singh, the king of Chittor, had a swayamvar.”

“A novel is different from history. There’s a difference between Paro and Padmavati. Be careful when dealing with a symbol of renunciation, sacrifice and courage like Padmavati,” he wrote.

“To save their honour from the invader Khilji, Rani Padmavati performed jauhar along with 16000 other courageous women; choosing to self-immolate rather than be held captive by Khilji,” he said.

“Despite knowing that defeat is unavoidable, every man wore the saffron turban for 12 years and committed saka. Tampering with this heroic tale is unacceptable,” Dutt tweeted.
