JAIPUR: Rajasthan Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Madan Lal Saini on Tuesday claimed that Mughal emperor Humayun told his father, Babur, to respect cows, Brahmins and women in order to continue ruling India.
“When Humayun was dying, he called Babur and told him, “If you want to rule Hindustan, you must keep three things in mind- respect cows, brahmins & women,” said the former MLA and RSS volunteer, as per news agency ANI.

Saini’s muddled statement quickly became a laughing stock on Twitter. Here are some hilarious reactions:
When Humayun was dying he called Babur who was already dead over 25 years earlier to tell him all this. Wow. 😂😂😂 https://t.co/0dMSuZf4WG

'Dying Humayun told Babur to respect cow, Brahmin, women': Rajasthan BJP chief Madan Lal Saini
If only Babur had listened to Humayun's wise words… ! Oh wait.
In any case, I want whatever it is that he is smoking.

But how exactly did a dying Humayun call his already dead father Babur?
Did he use some ancient mantra? https://t.co/Mp4eXOZ1yS

It may be noted that Babur, Humayun’s father, died in 1531 – almost 25 years before Humayun breathed his last in 1556.
The Rajasthan BJP chief’s remark came days after a Muslim man was allegedly beaten to death by a mob on suspicion of cow smuggling in Alwar district.
According to the postmortem report, Rakbar Khan died of “shock as a result of ante-mortem injuries sustained over the body.”
The autopsy further stated that the 28-year-old victim suffered 13 injuries in total, including eight bruises, two abrasions, a laceration, a fracture in the wrist and another in left femur.
