High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Rangila Rasul was a book published during the time of Arya Samaj and Muslim confrontation in Punjab during the 1920s. It was a supposedly a retaliatory action from Hindu community against a pamphlet published by a Muslim depicting the Hindu goddess Sita as a prostitute. It was written by an Arya Samaji, Pt. Chamupati in 1927, but the name was never revealed by the publisher Rajpal in Lahore. On the basis of Muslim complaints, Rajpal was arrested but acquitted in April 1929 after 5 years of trial. It is believed that the presiding judge was of Christian faith. After several unsuccessful attempts to kill Rajpal, he was stabbed to death by a young man named Ilam Din on April 6, 1929. The killer was hanged but was hailed as a martyr, and is now accorded the title of "Ghazi." Originally written in Urdu, it has been translated in Hindi and English. It remains banned in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh
