In 712 CE, the Arab general Muhammad ibn – Qasim defeated Dahir (real name Dadhiraja), King of Sind, who was  killed in the battle field of Rawar after a valiant fight against the Arab invaders. Dahir’s queen Rani Bhai (also knowns Ladi or Mai) was then besieged by the Arabs in the fort of Rawar. The heroic queen continued the struggle with only fifteen thousand soldiers in the fort. But the Arabs continued the siege vigorously. At last the queen lost all hopes of defending herself. According to CHACHNAMAH , she then assembled the women in the fort and addressed them in the following words:–

“God forbid that we should owe our liberty to those out caste cow eaters, our honour will be lost. Our respite is at an end, and there is nowhere any hope to escape. Let us collect wood, cotton and oil; for I think we should burn ourselves and go to meet our husbands. If any wishes to save herself, she may”. The queen and the ladies then entered into a house, where they burnt themselves to vindicate their honour. Probably she set an example for Rani Padmini, of 13th century who did the same several hundred years after Rani Bai. In Tamil Nadu, Queen of Chenji King Desing Rajan also entered her husband’s funeral pyre to avoid Muslim invaders.
