Event Description

Join us for an illustrated talk by Prashant Keshavmurthy, the associate professor of Persian-Iranian Studies at McGill University. This talk sheds light on Mullā Masīḥ Pānīpati's Dāstān-i Rām o Sitā, a Persian retelling of Valmiki’s Ramayana that portrays Rama as a prophet prefiguring Prophet Muhammad. The talk will also compare the two texts, Valmiki’s Ramayana and Masīḥ’s version, providing insights into their differences.
