MAHAT is a tale of conquest, religious wars, and one Hindu girl’s journey in fourteenth century India.
From the 7th to 19th centuries, Islam spread from Spain to China, conquering and converting “infidels.” In 1340 CE, an eleven-year-old Hindu girl is kidnapped and sold to a Muslim lord as a slave. This is the story of Taj Mahat Shakti—also known as Durga.
