The Rajput kings who played a great role in the medieval history of India were great warriors who preferred death to a defeat at the hands of foreign invaders. Votaries of Hindu culture, Rajput kings suffered from the serious defect of jealousy. Instead of uniting against the barbarous invaders for the sake of their country, they fought amongst themselves and became easy targets to the invaders in spite of their superior army. Had they learnt lessons from history, the medieval period would have been called Rajput period. But it did not happen because of their shortsightedness and lack of political acumen.
Tension prevailed in Bhatkal town for some time on Saturday after a group of youths stopped a vehicle carrying 15 oxen to Bhatkal from Hubli alleging that it was being “illegally transported”. There was a clash between the occupants of the vehicle and the youths. On a complaint from the youths, the police arrested the driver of the vehicle and two other occupants fled. When the news about the incident spread, around 300 people gheraoed the Bhatkal police station and demanded the arrest of the youths who, they said, had attacked people who were transporting oxen to Bhatkal for Bakrid festival.
