    Emperor Bahadur Shah Zafar was a secular ruler and a mystic at heart. He had Sufi leanings and wrote many Urdu poems.
    It is extremely unfortunate that he lies buried at Myanmar’s Yangon, despite his deep desire to be buried in Delhi’s Mehrauli area, where many of his ancestors and his favorite Sufi saint Qutubuddin Bakhtiar Kaki are buried. I wish the Indian government makes efforts to bring back his remains from Yangon and buries those in Mehrauli’s Zafar Mahal complex, which was built by the emperor for himself.
    Same goes for Prithviraj Chauhan who is buried in Afghanistan. Though it will be quite difficult to trace Chauhan’s remains, given the long span of time that has since passed, but there is no harm in giving it a try.
    The remains of Prithviraj Chauhan and Bahadur Shah Zafar must be brought back from their respective present burial sites to Delhi’s Mehrauli area- the place where they both belonged.
