If anything the book& the poem you listed - details the invasion and conquest of the Madurai Sultanate by the Vijayanagara empire and the temple chronicles also speak of board time period of various invasions. To weaponize the “sultanate” now is just dog whistle.
History is complicated, and messy.

To retell history through communalized goes to the heart of politics seeking to manipulate, manufacture and mobilise public support to consolidate the power of the majority.
Revisionist history strategically demands for revenge as a form of justice to right historical wrongs committed under non-Hindu rulers.

A friend just sent the petition being circulated by Hindu students against Prof @AudreyTruschke. Am not sharing that. What insufferable, ill-informed toxic fragility is this? If scholarship threaten your safety, and your religion. Perhaps time to rethink what those values are.
I want to take this moment to share Prof @KanitkarT ‘s talk

It’s a good indication of where we are as a society and a community. We have lost any capacity for robust interrogation or rational thought.
Also adding a thread by @quizzicalguy where you debunks the claim of Hindu genocide the students have listed as proof of “bigotry” against them!

When the state regulates humor: a look back at history, we realize that dystopias are not imagined futures on the verge of realization. But the record of what has been, what needs to be excavated and remembered.

Below a thread on how the Third Reich “regulated” humor.
In 1934, the Nazi state passed a “Law Against Treacherous Attacks on the State and Party and for the Protection of the Party Uniform,” — “which made laughing and telling jokes about the regime a capital offense.”
It remade the Gleichschaltung (Synchronization) regulations, “which, among other things, brought popular forms of entertainment and humor under the control of the Ministry of Propaganda and People’s Enlightenment.”
