Would you agree with the view that the message of universal rights in the french revolution was beset with contradictions Explain?

The major contradiction in the message of universal rights as per the French Constitution of 1791 was the total ignorance of women. All rights were given to men. Apart from that the presence of huge number of people as passive citizens, without voting rights, was like not putting into practice what you preach. In other words it can be said that although the declaration of universal rights was a good starting point, it left much to be desired.

Who was titu mir?

Syed Mir Nisar Ali commonly known as Titu Mir was a great Bengali freedom fighter and a peasant leader who resisted the oppression of the local zamindars and European indigo planters on the peasantry with ultimate object of liberating the country from British domination. He led the Muslim religious reform movement Tariqah-i-Muhammadiya in Bengal.Titu Mir belonged to a Muslim aristocratic family. His predecessor Syed Shahadat Ali came to Bengal from Arabia to preach Islam. Syed Abdullah, son of Shahadat Ali, was appointed Chief Qazi of Jafarpur by the emperor of Delhi and was invested with the title of Meer Insaaf. Henceforth the descendants of Shahadat Ali used both the hereditary titles 'Syed' and 'Mir'. Titu Mir was well-versed in Islamic education and had memorized the holy Quran at an early age. He acquired his early education from village maktab and then admitted to local madrassah. He had command over three languages -- Bangla, Arabic and Persian and developed keen interest in Arabic and Persian literature. He became an expert of Islamic theology, jurisprudence, philosophy, tasawwaf (Islamic mysticism) and mantiq. He was also an expert gymnast and a renowned pahlwan (wrestler) of his madrassah.In 1822 Titu Mir went on a pilgrimage to Makka where he came in close contact with the great Islamic reformer and revolutionary leader Syed Ahmad of Bareilly who inspired him to free his fellow countrymen from unislamic practices and foreign domination. In 1827 Titu Mir returned to Bengal and preached pure Islam amongst the Muslims and advised them to refrain from practicing shirk and bidaat. He had great influence on weavers and peasants but came in conflict with oppressing zamindars such as Krishnadeva Rai of Purha Kaliprasanna Mukhopadhyay of Gobardanga, Rajnarayan of Taragonia, Gauri Prasad Chowdhury of Nagpur and Devanath Rai of Gobra-govindpur. To overcome the force of the land lords Titu Mir organized a Mujahid force and trained indigenous people with lathi. With an army of five thousand men, he had built a bamboo fort at Narkelbaria in October 1831. He proclaimed himself the king and instigated the people for jihad He soon established his control over the districts of 24 Parganas, Nadia and Faridpur. Titu Mir demanded tax from the zamindars of Taki and Gobardanga who entreated the English for protection. An English contingent was sent from Calcutta. But the combined forces of the English and Zamindars met humiliating defeat at the hands of the mujahids. Subsequently Lord William Bentinck sent a regular army against Titu Mir under Lieutenant Colonel Stewart consisting of 100 cavalry, 300 native infantry and artillery with two cannons.The English attacked the mujahids on 14 November 1831. The mujahids failed to resist the English army outfitted with modern arms and took shelter inside the bamboo fort. The English opened fire and totally destroyed the fort causing heavy casualties on the side of the mujahids. Titu Mir along with many of his followers died on 19 November 1831. 350 mujahids including their commander Ghulam Masum were captured. Ghulam Masum was sentenced to death penalty and other 140 captives were punished on different charges.

Is Francis Bacon a moralist or teacher?

BACON AS A MORALIST: Bacon is certainly a moralist and he appears in that role in his essays. His essays abound in moral percepts. Helays down valuable guidelines for human conduct. He urges human beings to follow the right path in every fieldof life--- political, social, domestic, etc. The essay, Of Truth, is frankly didactic. The object of the writer is to instillinto the minds of the readers a love of truth. A man's mind, says he, should "turn upon the poles of truth." Allthe reasoning of human beings, says Bacon, should base upon truth... "Clear and round dealing is the honour of man's nature. ….For these winding and crooked courses are the goings of the serpent, which goeth basely uponthe belly, and not upon the feet. He goes on to Montaigne who said that, in telling a lie, a man was bravetowards God but a coward towards his fellow-men. Concluding the essay, Bacon says that falsehood is wickedand such wickedness will duly receive its punishment on the doomsday. Indeed, much of the essay is a moralsermon.In the essay, Of Suitors, Bacon says that a man should refuse to undertake a suit rather than undertakeit by giving a false hope to the petitioner. After having undertaken a suit, a man should keep telling thepetitioner exactly how much he has made progress in the case. Furthermore, he should ask for a reward for onlythat much of the service that he has actually rendered. A man who has undertaken a suit should not take underadvantage of any information, which is available to him through a petitioner. If he finds it difficult to promote asuit, he should allow the petitioner to approach somebody else for help. Those who undertake suits and employall kinds of crooked methods in having them granted or rejected are the worst offenders in society.Bacon shows the same high respect for moral principles in some of his other essays. For example, "Aman that hath no virtue in himself ever envieth virtue in others" (Of Envy). "The desire of power in excesscaused the angels to fall; the desire of knowledge in excess caused man to fall; but in charity there is no excess;neither can angel or man come in danger by it" (Of Goodness and Goodness of Nature). The author of suchprinciples was a man who theoretically at least cherished a profound love and respect for justice: "The principalduty of a judge is to suppress force and fraud" (Of Judicature).However, Bacon is not a moral idealist. He does preach morality but not ideal morality. The kind of morality he preaches has a tinge of worldliness. We might even say that his guiding principle is appropriateness,while morality is a secondary consideration. We cannot even claim that he was certain of the existence of moralprinciples of absolute validity. His essays seem to be the work of an opportunist. In the essay, Of Truth, hecertainly admires truth but then he also points out that falsehood is like alloy in gold and silver, which makesmetal better, even though it lowers the value of metal. By pointing out this, he dilutes all that he has said in thisessay in praise of truth. It is obvious that Bacon is concerned only with worldly success, and that he intends withhis morality to help people achieve worldly success. In other words, Bacon shows his concern for an individual'ssuccess in life rather than a concern for absolute morals or for any absolute ethical standards.In short, Bacon's principles are sensible. Bacon appears to be looking down from a height anddetermining what course of conduct pays best. He condemns cunning, not as a hateful thing but as a thing thatis unwise. Occasionally he even lays down the rules for immoral conduct without a word of open disapproval.For this reason, critics regard Bacon's morality as a cynical wisdom. The essays, which deal with domesticrelations, by their tone and substance, also confirm this impression. His view of friendship is purely andfundamentally utilitarian. Friendship gives comfort to heart; light to understanding and help in affairs of life.Thus, Bacon gives it a high value. Bacon throws no hint that a man may get a noble position by a deed of pureselflessness. In the essay, Of Marriages and Single Life, Bacon says that wife and children are hostages tofortune. According to Bacon, they are discipline of Humanity. However, he hardly seems to be aware of anywider influence. He emphasizes the utility of wife by saying that for a young man a wife is a mistress, for amiddle-aged man she is a companion, and for an old man she serves as a nurse. His view of love is also devoid of any passion or intense emotion. He looks upon love as "the child of folly" and urges his readers to serve itwholly from the serious affairs and actions of life.
