Frail but full of hopes

india Updated: Aug 20, 2006 01:39 IST

SATYAVATI RANA has lost her health but has not lost hopes of seeing her son Sher Singh Rana a free person. She was in Lucknow to garner support for the deeds of her son during the Vrihada Kshatriya Karmshala organised by Akhil Bharatiya Kshatriya Samanwaya Morcha in Ravindralaya on Saturday.

She believes her son has done the society proud by bringing the ashes of Prithviraj Chauhan, the last Hindu Rajput king, back to India from Afghanistan.

“My son has done the society proud, he is a true patriot, he is an incarnation of god, no one in India had ever thought of bringing back the ashes of Prithiviraj Chauhan, but he did that and yet he has been denied due respect which he deserves,” she said.

When asked about the charges of Phoolan Devi’s murder against his son she says, “ No one has seen him killing Phoolan. He has never said that he killed her. The police have wrongly implicated him.”

On his escape from jail, she says, “Lord Krishna too was taken out of jail for a social cause. Similarly, Rana walked away from the prison for a national cause. He never broke away from the prison, it all happened in a godly way.”

She wished that Rana got socially acceptable by testing his popularity in the elections, if possible. She said she was here to get support for her son and to ensure social acceptance of his son’s work by the masses. “If Phoolan can be forgiven for her crimes, why can’t Rana be freed for his great achievement? I believe people will soon decide whether my son is innocent or not.”

Satyavati believes that one day the society will recognise her son’s contributions and his name will be written in golden words in the history of India as he has put an end to the ‘shameful’ chapter of Indian history by bringing back the ashes of Prithviraj Chauhan.

She said, “I am here to highlight the great work done by my son so that he can be set free. I will like to see my son a free man as he is not a criminal.”
