Saturn is the seat of those traitors so seedy as to be rejected even from Hell, an ideal place for those who allowed the British to conquer India
The abject spirits who have treacherously betrayed the homeland and who have been rejected by Hell
It is the seat of the spirits that will never rise again, and that Hell itself was disgusted with burning. Two demons of times gone by live there, because of which the soul of an entire people was killed: Ja’far of Bengal and Sadiq of the Deccan, shame of the country, of religion, of humanity! Rejected, desperate, rejected, an entire nation has corrupted itself through their work.
A nation that broke the bonds of each nation has now lost its sovereignty and faith.
