We know that Raja Jaipal after having been defeated by Sultan Mahmud Ghaznavi committed suicide. And proudly claimed that as Rajputs they would put their loved ones to the sword and then end their own life. One segment of the readers think of it as a brave act, others scorn at the foolishness of the Raja. No Muslim can think like that, and spurn it as a defeatist attitude. Sultan Jalaluddin Khawarizm escaping the wrath of the Chengiz (Temujin) Khan, jumped into the river Indus on his horseback. Again interpretations differ. For instance Salman Rashid calls him a coward, while others praise his bravery at risking his life against all odds by jumping into a raging river, and looking forward to equalizing things. Mere interpretations. No one knows the truth of what was said but the facts are the same for both view points. Obviously you will judge an event with your own background. Raja Jaipal has plenty of followers in even our own delinquent liberals, but judgement is a point of view only. At one time, and one person, views will continue to differ with impunity. Our favourite past time is belittling our own heroes and our own history. Correcting same without facts and then putting own interpretations as facts is a childish game. Every time has its own value. In our times we should be responsive to other values of different times. Interpretations is a developing game.
Divergent points of view can be tolerated where no harm ensues out of that. Yes it is good to disagree without being disagreeable, but again a point arise where the same stops. For example an arsonist about to set fire to a house has to be stopped at all costs. Here divergent respect stops to practical interference. Islamic civilization has a set of values dictated by the Quran. There are Quranic laws which have to be respected for social harmony. The drive towards anarchy is welcome nowhere.
