Razia sultan 15 January 2023: Sultan Altamash addressing his people and telling an age old rule has been broken today. He says as per rule, 4 Qazis will give him evidence of moon and then he will announce eid celebrations, but this time 3 Qazis gave evidence and 4th evidence was given by my daughter. If they think, it is a sin, he wants them to punish him.
He asks if they all saw moon. They all say yes. He says why only Qazi’s evidence is considered pure and their evidence as impure. When god has made everyone equal, why a girl’s evidence is considered half. When Allah has made a woman complete and asks his believers to respect her and when she is half, then every man born from her womb is half. He says he considers all his people as equal and wants to give equal rights to all servants equal rights, if they think he is wrong. He wants to permit them to change an age old rule and consider woman as complete and her evidence also complete.
People chant Sultan zindabad. He asks if he can announce princess Razia’s evidence as complete with their permission. They call say they agree. Razia asks Shazia if she is dreaming. Shazia says it is not. Sultan asks Razia to come in front of her and gives her silver coin along with Qazis. He says because of princess Razia, he realised age old ritual/rule was wrong and changed it and asks if they need gift from their sultan. He chant yes. He throws silver coins on them. They all pick coins happily and thank him.
