Thread on history Jauhar in India!
1. Historical documented famous Jauhars. Jauhars - Hindu custom of mass self-immolation by women in parts of Indian subcontinent to avoid capture, enslavement & rape by invaders, when facing certain defeat during a war. #MughalWomenAtrocities
2. Reasons to commit Jauhar?
2A. Saving Rajput women Pride - Rajput women like the Rajput men had huge sense of pride, self-respect & honor despising thought of living under control of anyone else. Thus, these women embraced death rather than tolerating dishonorable positions.
2B. Saving chastity of women - Most Muslim kings used to capture wives, daughters & other women in palace throw them in harem, where these women had to suffer sexual exploitation. It was a huge blow to chastity of these women, which was worse than death.
2C. Prevent enslavement - Victorious kings always enslave people on losing side. The high sense of honor prevented Rajput men & women to accept subordination opting self-sacrifice than enslavement. Rajput women jumped in fire committed mass self-sacrifice in strong walls of fort,
3 What is Saka Pratha?
3A. As women committed Jauhar, men prepared for their self-sacrifice. In Rajputs tradition, men would never surrender but fight till last breath. This ritual of men facing enemy, even though they knew there was no returning was known as Saka.
3B. Saka was performed a day after women & children performed Jauhar. Early in morning, men would cleanse their bodies taking a bath.
3C. After this, they would wear clothes, dyed in saffron color. This color has huge significance in Hindu mythology.
3D. They would scoop some of ash from Jauhar kund that engulfed women previous night & rub this ash on their foreheads as sign of respect for deceased.
3E. Tulsi tree is a holy symbol of Hindus. Each man would place a leaf of this inside their mouth, done to dead bodies usually.
3F. Lastly, they would mount their horses & once entrance of the fort was flung open, they would go out & crash on their enemies with every bit of force. Seeking fight unto death!
