Ma'am,
If someone wants to know your opinion and views on the recent agitation in our country by so called RAJPUT ( Karni Sena) on a movie based upon the Life of Queen Padmavati due to her dishonor and misinterpretation of History , Then what will be your point of views?
Reason behind the question are : 1. This is course on History made by an RAJPUT who is also a lady and UPSC also ask questions from current scenario of our country, so Don't take this question in any other unfair way of understanding.
