The article picks up its cue from the recent discussions in the Indian academia, one side of which feels appreciative towards one of the medieval-era Delhi Sultans Alauddin Khilji for thwarting Mongol's attempts to conquer India.
The writer here, presenting a view from the other end of the spectrum, assesses and compares the two sides, and infers that if not better, Mongols were certainly not worse than the ruling Sultans of India.

Hey. Thanks for responding. Two questions:
Bhai, first of all. DO NOT think of suicide. At all. You have aimed to be a civil servant and I am sure you will be one. Think of the challenges you will then have to face on a daily basis. You must quit this defeatist and escapist attitude and start thinking of problems as resolvable challenges.
As to your specific issue, I myself am facing something similar. I am trying to convince my mother of something that my own evolved thinking finds easy to comprehend, but for her it essentially challenges her identity and existence.
How do you deal with it? I suggest you get some money together and take her out somewhere to talk. Make her meet people who are Sikh from heart, and not necessarily from rituals.
She seems like a nice person. So never be hostile to her. Persist and she will understand eventually.
Lastly, let go of all the guilt, of you have any, of any kind. Believe in yourself and your thoughts. Biggest of all don’t let your or your mother’s health be affected adversely. Because if that happens, all the effort will go down the drain. Force yourself to be positive. It reinforces your argument multiple times.
Again, Do Not Quit. You are going to be a civil servant. You are going to be a problem solver. It should not be in your nature to quit. :)
It's kind of strange that they consider what is "natural" anyway. Who cares if it's natural?
It seems like the court should be more concerned if an act poses any sort of risk or threat to the health and safety of the public. If it doesn't pose a significant threat, then why outlaw it?
It is actually a British Colonial relic that was based on the Victorian mentality. The British themselves had one such legislation until the 1960s.
