Plurality and diversity are the building blocks of South Asia. South Asia comprises 40% of the world’s population and boasts a huge diversity of languages, religions, cultures and societies. Whether one is in stark mountains of Abbottabad in Pakistan or the humid marshes of Nazirabad in Bangladesh, the diversity and plurality is what catches the eye of any traveler. Even in terms of sexual plurality, Pakistani and Mughal South Asia has been at the forefront of same-sex relationship freedom. Kings like Mahmud of Ghazni, Allauddin Khilji and Babur, are revered and respected for their progressive stance on the issues of homosexuality. Their same-sex love stories have become the stuff of legends and are an integral part of middle-eastern and Pakistani South Asian popular culture and lore. This book is a celebration of that unique sense of sexual diversity and plurality in South Asia, Pakistan and Bangladesh and especially of the glorious Mughal culture.
